About how much would fit into a small medicine cup.


Fluid Ounce!

"Ounce" is used for volume and for weight.

If you mean an ounce of weight, say "ounce weight",
but if you mean an ounce of fluid say "fluid ounce" ("fl oz")

Here we talk about fluid ounces



milk carton


A small carton holds about 8 ounces, which is also called 1 cup.

1 cup = 8 ounces



A pint is equal to 2 cups.

1 pint = 2 cups = 16 ounces

By the way ... you can measure things using measuring cups ... !


If you were measuring many cups of liquid all put together, you might have to use quarts.

A quart (qt) is the same thing as 4 cups or 2 pints. 

1 quart = 2 pints = 4 cups = 32 ounces


If you still need more liquid you may want to switch to using gallons.

A gallon (gal) is the same as 16 cups or 8 pints or 4 quarts.  It is the largest liquid measurement.

1 Gallon = 4 quarts = 8 pints = 16 cups= 128 ounces
