How to Convert Cubic Centimeters to Cups

Calculators can be used to convert measurements from one unit to another

To convert a cubic centimeter measurement to a cup measurement, multiply the volume by the conversion ratio. One cubic centimeter is equal to 0.004227 cups, so use this simple formula to convert:

cups = cubic centimeters × 0.004227

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

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

Cubic centimeters and cups are both units used to measure volume. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Cubic Centimeters

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 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.

Cups

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 cup is equal to just under 236.6 milliliters, but in nutrition labelling, one cup is equal to 240 milliliters.[2]

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.
