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.

History/origin: The cubic inch is derived from the inch, a unit of length within the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. Since the 1950s and 1960s, with the adoption of the international yard, the inch has been defined as exactly 2.54 cm.

Current use: The cubic inch and cubic foot are still used in the United States, and to some extent in the United Kingdom. However, SI (International System of Units) units of measurement are also widely used throughout these countries.

In the US, the automotive and aircraft industries in particular use the cubic inch to some extent, though the SI derived or SI accepted units of volume (liter, milliliter, and cubic meter) are also used.

In the UK, automotive model numbers are sometimes denoted in cubic inches.
