How to Convert Cups to Cubic Meters

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

To convert a cup measurement to a cubic meter measurement, multiply the volume by the conversion ratio. One cup is equal to 0.000237 cubic meters, so use this simple formula to convert:

cubic meters = cups × 0.000237

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

For example, here's how to convert 5 cups to cubic meters using the formula above.
5 c = (5 × 0.000237) = 0.001183 m³

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

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.

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 Meters

The cubic meter is a unit that 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.
