How many ounces is a cup?
Is this a serious question?
8 fluid ounces
What are you trying to measure, kjv?
Ounces are traditionally a measure of weight, while a cup is a measure of volume. Depending on the product the result can be different.
There are some good sites that will do the conversions for you, but you need to be clear about what you're 'translating'.
A PINT IS A POUND THE WORLD AROUND< so a half pint is half a pound, a half pound is 8 oz. a cup is also i/2 a pint , so it is QED, 8 oz .
Now, how many drams in a std barrel
or 20 fluid ounces is a pint
and 16 ounces is a pound (of mass)
A dram is a buoy... especially if you add a little scotch to that..
and a cup of coffee is six ounces.
A pint's a pound the world around,
Two cups a pint, a pint's a pound.
== My grandfather used to quote that to us. -====
It helped to know that when making huge quantities of bread.
