 From: cup (US) To: pint (US)

### 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.

### Pint

Definition: A pint (symbol: p) is a unit of volume in the imperial and United States customary systems of units. The imperial pint is equal to approximately 568 mL. In the United States, the liquid pint is approximately 473 mL while the dry pint is 551 mL.

History/origin: Both the US and UK pints were historically defined as 1/8 of a gallon. The difference between the definitions of the US and UK pints arose in 1824 when the UK adopted a new definition of the gallon while the US retained the older English measure of the wine gallon.

Current use: The dry and liquid pints are still used in the US as a measurement of volume. Although the process of metrication dictated that the pint be replaced by metric units of volume, it is still legal to use the pint as a supplementary unit in the UK, and certain items such as draught beer, cider, and milk in returnable containers are still measured in terms of pints.
