Please provide values below to convert cubic centimeter [cm^3] to fluid ounce (US) [fl oz (US)], or vice versa.

 From: cubic centimeter To: fluid ounce (US)

### Cubic centimeter

Definition: The cubic centimeter (symbol: cm3) is an SI derived unit of volume based on the cubic meter. It is the volume of a cube with measurements 1 cm × 1 cm × 1 cm, and is equal to 1/1,000,000 of a cubic meter, 1/1,000 of a liter, or 1 milliliter. The abbreviations of cc and ccm are also sometimes used to denote a cubic centimeter, but their use is deprecated in the International System of Units (SI).

History/origin: The cubic centimeter was derived from the cubic meter, using an SI prefix, in this case "centi," to denote a submultiple of the base unit.

Current use: The cubic centimeter is used in many scientific disciplines, often in the form of milliliters (symbol: mL). Although the cubic centimeter is based on the SI unit of volume, the mL (and its multiples) are more commonly used as a measurement of volume than the cubic centimeter. The United States medical and automotive fields are an exception to this, and the cubic centimeter is still widely used in these fields. In contrast, the United Kingdom uses cubic centimeters in the medical, but not the automotive field.

### Fluid ounce

Definition: A fluid ounce (symbol: fl oz) is a unit of volume in the imperial and United States customary systems of measurement. The US fluid ounce is 1/16 of a US fluid pint, and 1/128 of a US liquid gallon, which is equal to 29.57 mL. The imperial fluid ounce is 1/20 of an imperial pint, and 1/160 of an imperial gallon, which is equal to 28.4 mL.

History/origin: The fluid ounce was originally based on the volume occupied by one ounce (weight) of a given liquid such as wine or water, thus varying based on the system being used. In 1824, the imperial gallon was defined as the volume of ten pounds of water at a temperature of 16.7°C. The imperial gallon's definition was later changed to be equal to 4.54609 liters, making the imperial fluid ounce equal to exactly 28.4130625 mL.

The United States fluid ounce was initially based on the wine gallon used in England prior to 1824. After the adoption of the international inch in 1959, the US fluid ounce became equal to exactly 29.5735295625 mL.

Current use: As the name indicates, the fluid ounce is typically used as a measurement of liquid volume. It is mostly used in the United States and the United Kingdom, as one of the many measurements of volume used.
