Cup (US)

Definition: A cup is a unit of volume in the imperial and United States customary systems of measurement. The metric cup is defined as 250 milliliters. One United States customary cup is equal to 236.5882365 milliliters as well as 1/16 U.S. customary gallons, 8 U.S. customary fluid ounces, 16 U.S. customary tablespoons, or 48 U.S. customary teaspoons.

Current use: The cup is typically used in cooking to measure liquids and bulk foods, often within the context of serving sizes. Actual drinking cups can vary significantly in terms of size and are generally not a good representation of this unit. Standardized measuring cups are used instead.


Definition: A tablespoon (symbol: Tbsp) is a unit of volume based on an item of cutlery. The United States customary tablespoon is equal to approximately 14.8 mL, a metric tablespoon is exactly equal to 15 mL, and an Australian tablespoon is equal to 20 mL. In nutrition labeling in both the US and the UK, a tablespoon is defined as 15 mL.

History/origin: The use of the tablespoon as a measurement of volume began in the 18th century when it became the unofficial unit of the Apothecaries' system of measures. It was equal to 4 drams, or ½ of a fluid ounce. These relationships still hold in the US customary system of measurement.

Current use: The table spoon as a unit of volume is used in cooking in certain countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
