How to Convert Cups to Cubic Meters

To convert a measurement in cups to a measurement in cubic meters, multiply the volume by the following conversion ratio: 0.000237 cubic meters/cup.

Since one cup is equal to 0.000237 cubic meters, you can use this simple formula to convert:

cubic meters = cups × 0.000237

The volume in cubic meters is equal to the volume in cups multiplied by 0.000237.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 cups to cubic meters using the formula above.
cubic meters = (5,000 c × 0.000237) = 1.182941 m³

Cups and cubic meters are both units used to measure volume. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

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.[1] 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.

What Is a Cubic Meter?

One cubic meter is equal to the volume of a cube with each edge measuring one meter.

The cubic meter, or cubic metre, is the SI derived unit for volume in the metric system. Cubic meters can be abbreviated as , and are also sometimes abbreviated as cu m, CBM, cbm, or MTQ. For example, 1 cubic meter can be written as 1 m³, 1 cu m, 1 CBM, 1 cbm, or 1 MTQ.
