## How Much 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.

## How to Convert Cups

To convert cups to another unit of volume, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor. A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.[2]

You can find the conversion factors for cups in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the volume measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

cups × conversion factor = result

You can also use a calculator, such as one of the converters below, for the conversion.
