  1. The same way you convert metric units – divide the base unit by 3, and voila! No problem.
    1/3 of an 8 oz cup is 2.666 oz
    1/3 L is 333.3 mL
    Now – what is the SI representation of 1/3 hour?

  2. A cup (using common standards of measurement) contains 8 ounces of liquid,
    so the number of ounces in 1/3 of a cup is 1/3 of 8.
    HINT: In English, the word “of” indicates multiplication.

  3. You go to Google and you type:
    1/3 cup in ounces
    …and it’ll tell you the answer (2.666666666 ounces).
    Google’s search engine can do a lot more than just look for web pages – and unit conversions are done without searching.
    You can even ask quite silly things like:
    1 teaspoon per hour in cubic light years per nanosecond
    …and it’ll give you the answer!

  4. You could do a Google search on the following phrase ” convert 1/3 of a cup into ounces “.
    It also suffices to know that there are 8 ounces in a cup.

  5. Well a cup is 8 ounces. One third of 8 would be
    1/3 * 8 = (approximately) 2.4 ounces.
    Note that this is FLUID ounces, not ounces as a measure of weight!

  6. I start with a cup of coffee ( 6 oz.). One-third of a cup of coffee is about two ounces.
    Sorry America, But A Cup Isn’t 8 Ounces Everywhere Else In The World
    The avoirdupois ounce equal to approximately 28.3 grams and the troy ounce of about 31.1 grams. Fluid ounce (abbreviated fl oz, fl. oz. or oz. fl.) is a unit of volume equal to about 28.4 ml in the imperial system or about 29.6 ml in the US system. Other less common: Ounce – Wikipedia
    This kind of question does not have an international answer.

  7. “A pint’s a pound the whole world round,” which is to say that there are sixteen fluid ounces in a pint just as there are sixteen ounces in a pound.
    Divide 16 by 2 to get 1 cup: 8 oz.
    Divide 8 by 3 to get 1/3 cup: 2 2/3 oz.
    1/3 of a cup is 2 2/3 ounces.

  8. It depends. And then it depends again.
    A cup is a measure of volume. An ounce can be a measure of liquid volume or weight.
    There are troy ounces, avoir du pois ounces, ugh it goes on and on.
    The simple answer:
    1 cup = 8 fluid oz
    1/3 cup = 8/3 fluid oz = 2.67 fluid oz.
    So, for water, this is a good enough conversion.
    If you are talking about something like flour: forget it.
    Volumetric measurements will yield nothing but heartache.

  9. Divide 16 by 3. That’s 5.33 ounces. The 0.33 is a table spoon. Three table spoons per ounce. A table spoon is the big spoon on the spoon measuring ring.

  10. I must admit being a cook and using mainly US recipes I started to go quietly bonkers as, what size is the original cup, does water weigh the same as flour or dried beans? I could go on but one day my husband came up and said a present had arrived for us (he also cooks). It was a set of stainless steel cup measurements. I used them recently and was very pleased not to have to guess. The other thing for us is we live over 1000 feet up which means everything takes longer to cook. I am pleased to say the cups are worth their weight in stainless steel and were not very expensive at all. From an online shop called Amazon.

  11. A cup is 8 ounces, so to get 1/3 of a cup we would multiply 1/3 × 8/1 and get 8/3 which equals 2.666 ounces.
    You could divide 8 ounces by 3 ( from 1/3 ) and come up with 2.666 ounces.

  12. Ome can only convert to the volumetric (and highly ambiguous) fluid ounce. Since 8 fluid ounces is 1 cup, 1/3 of a cup must also be 1/3 of 8 ounces.
    Ways to notate this:
    8/3 fluid ounces
    2 and 2/3 fl oz
    ~2.67 fl oz

  13. One ounce is 28 g. However the weight of substances depend on their density, so that means that while 28 ml of water will be one ounce. Another substance, like sugar with density that is higher may occupy less than 28 ml to have 28 g there. So it is not really possible to have a single value in ounces for 1/3 cup. While you might have about 80 g water for 1/3 cup (just under 3 oz water) you might measure a mass if 120 g (5 oz ) sugar in 1/3 cup.
