How to convert

1 cup (cup) = 236.588236 cubic centimeter (cu cm). Cup (cup) is a unit of Volume used in Standard system. Cubic Centimeter (cu cm) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system.

Cups: A Unit of Volume

Cups are a unit of volume that are used to measure liquids, such as water, milk, oil, vinegar, etc. They are also used to measure some dry ingredients, such as sugar, flour, rice, etc. They are different from tablespoons and teaspoons, which are smaller units of volume. They are also different from quarts and gallons, which are larger units of volume. They are also different from barrel of oil equivalent (BOE), which is a unit of energy based on the approximate energy released by burning one barrel of crude oil.

Definition of Cups

A cup is defined as 250 milliliters (ml) in the metric system of measurement. It is equivalent to 8.45 fluid ounces or 0.25 quarts in the US customary system. A cup is also equal to 8.8 imperial fluid ounces or 0.22 imperial quarts in the British imperial system.

History of Cups

The origin of the term cup as a unit of measure is uncertain, but it may have derived from the Latin word cuppa, which means a small vessel for drinking. Cups have been used since ancient times to store and transport various liquids and dry goods. The size and shape of cups varied depending on the type and quantity of the goods, the availability of materials, and the customs of different regions and countries.

The use of cups as a unit of measure dates back to the medieval times, when the European system of measurement was established. The standard size of these cups was based on the pint, which was originally defined as the volume of a pound of water at 62 °F. The cup was convenient for measuring and dividing smaller amounts of liquids and dry goods.

The use of cups as a unit of measure continued until the 20th century, when the metric system of measurement was adopted in most countries. The cup was gradually replaced by units such as milliliters, grams, etc. However, some countries and regions still use cups for certain types of liquids and dry ingredients, especially in cooking and baking.

How to Convert Cups

To convert cups to other units of volume, one can use the following formulas:

  • To convert cups to milliliters: multiply by 250
  • To convert cups to fluid ounces: multiply by 8.45
  • To convert cups to tablespoons: multiply by 16
  • To convert cups to quarts: multiply by 0.25
  • To convert cups to gallons: multiply by 0.0625
  • To convert cups to BOE: divide by 1,200

Where Cups are Used

Cups are mainly used in cooking and baking in some countries and regions that use the US customary system or the British imperial system of measurement. They are often used for measuring and adding liquids such as water, milk, oil, vinegar, etc., and dry ingredients such as sugar, flour, rice, etc., to recipes.

In some countries that use the metric system of measurement, such as Canada and Australia, cups are sometimes used as an informal or approximate unit of volume for certain types of liquids and dry ingredients. For example, in Canada, maple syrup is sometimes sold by the cup, which is equivalent to about 250 ml or 0.25 liters.

In some countries that have their own traditional units of volume based on vessels or containers, such as China and Japan, cups are not commonly used or recognized. Instead, they use units such as sheng (about 1 liter), ge (about 200 ml), or chawan (about 180 ml).

Example Conversions of Cups to Other Units

Here are some examples of converting cups to other units of volume:

  • 1 cup = 250 milliliters

  • 2 cups = 16.9 fluid ounces

  • 3 cups = 48 tablespoons

  • 4 cups = 1 quart

  • 5 cups = 0.3125 gallons

  • 6 cups = 0.005 BOE

  • 1 milliliter = 0.004 cup

  • 2 fluid ounces = 0.237 cup

  • 3 tablespoons = 0.188 cup

  • 4 quarts = 16 cups

  • 5 gallons = 80 cups

  • 6 BOE = 7,200 cups.

US customary cup can be abbreviated as c., = 236.5882365 millilitres = 1/16 U.S. customary gallon = 1/4 U.S. customary quart

Cubic Centimeters - A Unit of Volume

Definition of the Cubic Centimeter

A cubic centimeter (symbol cm3 or cc) is a commonly used unit of volume that corresponds to the volume of a cube with sides of 1 centimeter (0.01 meter) in length. It is also equivalent to 1 milliliter, which is a unit of volume in the metric system.

One cubic centimeter is equal to 0.000001 cubic meters, 0.06102374 cubic inches, or 0.000264172 gallons.

History of the Cubic Centimeter

The cubic centimeter is derived from the centimeter, which is a unit of length that was introduced in France in 1795 as part of the metric system. The centimeter was defined as one hundredth of a meter, which is the base unit of length in the metric system. The meter was originally defined as one ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole along a meridian, but later redefined based on various physical standards, such as a platinum-iridium bar and a wavelength of light. The current definition of the meter, adopted in 1983, is based on the speed of light in vacuum.

The cubic centimeter was first used as a unit of volume for measuring liquids and gases, such as water, milk, juice, oil, air, and oxygen. The cubic centimeter was also used for measuring some solids, such as sugar, salt, and flour. The cubic centimeter was adopted as a standard unit of measure in many countries that use the metric system, such as France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Sweden.

How to Convert Cubic Centimeters

To convert cubic centimeters to other units of volume, you need to multiply or divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:

  • To convert cubic centimeters to cubic meters, multiply by 0.000001.
    • Example: 2 cm3 × 0.000001 = 0.000002 m3
  • To convert cubic centimeters to cubic inches, multiply by 0.06102374.
    • Example: 2 cm3 × 0.06102374 = 0.12204748 in3
  • To convert cubic centimeters to milliliters or liters, multiply by 1 or divide by 1000 respectively.
    • Example: 2 cm3 × 1 = 2 mL or 2 cm3 ÷ 1000 = 0.002 L
  • To convert cubic centimeters to gallons (US liquid), multiply by 0.000264172.
    • Example: 2 cm3 × 0.000264172 = 0.000528344 gal
  • To convert cubic centimeters to bushels (US), multiply by 0.00002837825.
    • Example: 2 cm3 × 0.00002837825 = 0.0000567565 bu
  • To convert cubic centimeters to barrels (oil), multiply by 0.00000628981.
    • Example: 2 cm3 × 0.00000628981 = 0.00001257962 bbl

To convert other units of volume to cubic centimeters, you need to divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:

  • To convert cubic meters to cubic centimeters, divide by 0.000001.
    • Example: 0.000002 m3 ÷ 0.000001 = 2 cm3
  • To convert cubic inches to cubic centimeters, divide by 0.06102374.
    • Example: 0.12204748 in3 ÷ 0.06102374 = 2 cm3
  • To convert milliliters or liters to cubic centimeters, divide by 1 or multiply by 1000 respectively.
    • Example: 2 mL ÷ 1 = 2 cm3 or 0.002 L × 1000 = 2 cm3
  • To convert gallons (US liquid) to cubic centimeters, divide by 0.000264172.
    • Example: 0.000528344 gal ÷ 0.000264172 = 2 cm3
  • To convert bushels (US) to cubic centimeters, divide by 0.00002837825.
    • Example: 0.0000567565 bu ÷ 0.00002837825 = 2 cm3
