Converting Cups to Milliliters and Milliliters to Cups

Converting Icon
  • Milliliters (ml) and cups are both units of volume

    , but they are measured in different ways. Ml is a metric unit, while cups are a customary unit. This means that there is no exact conversion between ml and cups.
  • One cup is approximately equal to 240 ml.

    However, this conversion can vary slightly depending on the type of liquid being measured. For example, a cup of water is exactly 240 ml, but a cup of milk is slightly more than 240 ml.
  • The conversion between ml and cups was first developed in the 19th century. At the time, there was no standard unit of measurement for volume, and different countries used different units. This made it difficult to share recipes and cooking instructions.
  • In 1875, the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) established the metric system as the international standard for measurement. This led to the adoption of the ml as the standard unit of volume.
  • However, the US customary system of measurement is still widely used in the United States. This is why cups are still commonly used to measure volume in American recipes.
  • Cups are used in the United States customary system of measurement, while milliliters are used in the metric system.
  • Cups are typically used to measure smaller volumes of liquid and dry goods. They are also used in recipes and cooking instructions.
  • Milliliters are typically used to measure larger volumes of liquid, especially in scientific and medical applications.
  • The word "milliliter" comes from the Latin words "mille," meaning "thousand," and "litra," meaning "pound."
  • The word "cup" comes from the Old English word "cuppe," which means "a hollow vessel." It is thought to be related to the Proto-Germanic word "kopp," which means "head" or "round object."
