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.[1]

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.

Cubic Feet

The cubic foot is a unit of volume that is equal to the space consumed by a cube having sides one foot on each edge.

The cubic foot is a US customary and imperial unit of volume. A cubic foot is sometimes also referred to as a cubic ft. Cubic feet can be abbreviated as ft³, and are also sometimes abbreviated as cu foot, cu ft, or CF. For example, 1 cubic foot can be written as 1 ft³, 1 cu foot, 1 cu ft, or 1 CF.
