Timing is the spacing of events in time. Some typical uses are:

  • The act of measuring the elapsed time of something or someone, often at athletic events such as swimming or running, where participants are timed with a device such as a stopwatch.
  • Engine timing, for various functions such as ignition, cam timing to control poppet valve timing and overlap, and fuel injection timing.
