US Standard Volume
These are the most common measurements:
 Ounces
 Cups
 Pints
 Quarts
 Gallons


Ounces (oz) are small.
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 


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

Pints
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 

Other Volume Measurements
Cubic Inch
Volume is length by length by length, so the Cubic Inch is a cube that is 1 inch on each side.
The Unit is written many ways, such as:
 in^{3}
 inch^{3}
 cu in
 cu inch
 cubic inches
 etc ...
Barrel of Oil
1 oil barrel (bbl) is equal to 42 gallons (or about 160 Litres)
