## How to Convert Cups to Cubic Yards

To convert a measurement in cups to a measurement in cubic yards, multiply the volume by the following conversion ratio: 0.000309 cubic yards/cup.

Since one cup is equal to 0.000309 cubic yards, you can use this simple formula to convert:

cubic yards = cups × 0.000309

The volume in cubic yards is equal to the volume in cups multiplied by 0.000309.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5,000 cups to cubic yards using the formula above.

Cups and cubic yards 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.

Cubic yards can be abbreviated as *yd³*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *cu yard*, *cu yd*, or *CY*. For example, 1 cubic yard can be written as 1 yd³, 1 cu yard, 1 cu yd, or 1 CY.

You can calculate volume using a cubic yardage calculator if you have the dimensions of a space or object.
