The cup can be a difficult unit of measurement for people to use, especially when converting from grams or millilitres etc because there isn’t really a set standard conversion rate, it tends to vary. There are approximately 8 tablespoons in ½ a cup, and each table spoon holds around 15ML which means 8 multiplied by 15 120ML.

The cup is mostly used in North America as a standard unit of measurement of volume. It is used in cooking as a fluid measurement to measure liquids, or as a dry measurement to measure bulk items such as sugar. The reason that the cup measurement tends to vary is because there is often a difference between the standard cups size that households have.

In the United States, the customary cup is defined as half a pint, which is 8.33 imperial fluid ounces or 16 tablespoons.

New Zealand, Australia, Canada, South Africa and Lebanon use the metric cup where one cup is commonly defined as 250 millilitres so each one contain 16 2/3 international tablespoons, where each one contains 15ML, 12 ½ Australian tablespoons and approximately 8.80 imperial ounces.

In European cooking recipes, the weight of any liquid volume that is bigger than tablespoons is normally stated in millilitres where non-liquid ingredients are measured in grams on a kitchen scale rather than using a measuring cup. If you are cooking or baking, then you must not use just one conversion rate of grams to cups because it is not the same for all items. The conversion from one measurement to the other must take into account the density of the ingredient for example, the conversion rate of sugar will be different to flour. There are European measuring cups that can be bought come with additional scales for items that are measured in bulk such as flour or sugar.

There are 5 ml. In a teaspoon, 3 teaspoons in a tablespoon, 2 tablespoons in an ounce, and 4 ounces in 1/2 cup.  So...5 x 3 x 2 x 4 = 120.  There are about 120 ml. In 1/2 cup.

  • 1 cup = 236 ml
  • 1/2 cup = 236 divided by 2
  • 236/2 = 118 ml
