So you want to know how many ounces there are in a cup? Well, let me tell you: it depends. There are many different kinds of ounces and cups, depending on what kind of ingredient you’re measuring and whether it’s wet or dry. For example, one cup of flour is equal to 4 3/4 ounces but 1 dry ounce equals 1/8 cup. Let us see how to convert Ounce to Cup.

Understand that there are many ounces in a cup, depending on what you are measuring.

Ounces are a unit of measurement, while cups are not. Ounces can be measured in ounces or tablespoons, but not both at once. Once you understand this distinction, you’ll see that the conversion formulas above work perfectly well with your ingredient amounts—no matter what they are!
For example: If you have 2 teaspoons of flour and 1/4 cup of sugar (which is 1/2 cup), then multiply those numbers together to get 4 teaspoons total for your recipe. That’s because there are 4 ounces in one teaspoon and 2 tablespoons in one cup if we’re going by volume measurements instead of weight ones here; this means that if we wanted to use volume units instead (like cups) then our final answer would change slightly: 4 divided by 4 equals 1/2 since each tablespoon weighs 0.5 oz./oz./tbsp., so instead we’d get 3 spoons’ worth of flour + 1 spoon’ worth = 3+1 = 4 spoons total — so now know how many teaspoons should go into these recipes!

Look up the conversion rate for any item. For example, one cup of flour is equal to 4 3/4 ounces.

Find out how many tablespoons or teaspoons are in your ingredient. If you’re using dry ingredients like sugar and flour, look up their grams per ounce on a conversion chart or use this handy tool from Real Simple Magazine (it’s free!).
Using the amount of liquid in your recipe as an indirect measurement (by weight), calculate how many cups are needed for each ingredient by multiplying its volume by 1 ¼ times its density.


Use a conversion table. One cup equals 8 fluid ounces, but 1 dry ounce equals 1/8 cup.

If you’re looking for a conversion table, the best place to start is with your phone or computer. Most phones have a built-in app that will allow you to look up conversions with just a few taps. There are also plenty of apps available online that will do this job for you too!
Once you’ve found the right app, open it and select “Convert.”
You’ll be presented with several options: ounces (O), cups (C), tablespoons (T), teaspoons (T), grams (g), milliliters (mL)…the list goes on! Each option has its own set of instructions on how to use it properly so make sure yours is working correctly before continuing with this tutorial.
When determining how many ounces there are in a cup, you need to take into account that it depends whether you’re measuring wet or dry ingredients and what kind of item you’re measuring.
For example, if you’re using an ounce for dry ingredients and a half-cup for liquid measurements, then 3/4ths of an ounce equals 1/2 cup. However, if the item being measured is liquid (as opposed to solid), then 1/8th of an ounce equals one tablespoon.
Here’s what these conversions look like:


To sum up, here are some guidelines for calculating the number of ounces in a cup:
1 cup equals 8 fluid ounces. (This does not include ice.)
1 dry ounce equals 1/8 cup.
