How to Convert Cubic Centimeters to Cups

To convert a measurement in cubic centimeters to a measurement in cups, multiply the volume by the following conversion ratio: 0.004227 cups/cubic centimeter.

Since one cubic centimeter is equal to 0.004227 cups, you can use this simple formula to convert:

cups = cubic centimeters × 0.004227

The volume in cups is equal to the volume in cubic centimeters multiplied by 0.004227.

For example, here's how to convert 500 cubic centimeters to cups using the formula above.
cups = (500 cm³ × 0.004227) = 2.113376 c

What Is a Cubic Centimeter?

The cubic centimeter is a unit that is equal to the volume of a cube with one centimeter sides. One cubic centimeter is equal to about 0.061 cubic inches.[1]

The cubic centimeter, or cubic centimetre, is a multiple of the cubic meter, which is the SI derived unit for volume. In the metric system, "centi" is the prefix for hundredths, or 10-2. Cubic centimeters can be abbreviated as cm³, and are also sometimes abbreviated as cu cm, cc, or ccm. For example, 1 cubic centimeter can be written as 1 cm³, 1 cu cm, 1 cc, or 1 ccm.

What Is a Cup?

The cup is a unit of volume equal to 16 tablespoons or 8 fluid ounces. The cup should not be confused with the metric cup or the teacup, which are different units of volume.

One standard cup is equal to 236.588 milliliters, but for nutrition labeling, one cup is defined as 240 milliliters.[2] To further confuse things, a metric cup is equal to 250 mL, while in Japan, a cup is equivalent to only 200 mL.

The cup is a US customary unit of volume. Cups can be abbreviated as c, and are also sometimes abbreviated as C. For example, 1 cup can be written as 1 c or 1 C.
