  1. Ask Google. You can get an answer from Google in 10 seconds. Questions of your sort shouldn’t even be allowed on Quora as they waste everyone’s time and bandwidth.

  2. So many dumb questions on Quora anymore….if a person can enter a question to Quora it would be assumed that person has a computer so the answer would be immediate if that person entered the question to the browser… how many cups is 4oz.? It is exactly one-half cup. Hence one cup is 8oz in case someone would ask…lol

  3. the answer is “.5”…i submitted the answer in that form only to have it deleted…i see that several others gave the same, or a similar, answer and daddy Q collapsed their answers saying they “needed improvement”…say, what??…how can you improve on a correct answer?…note: the answer is NOT not the correct answer just because you don’t expand your answer to include the first 10 chapters of “war and peace”…if the answer is “.5” then that’s all one need write to ANSWER the question…economy of energy, time, and band width…less IS more—or at least just as much…

  4. Daniel Spencer, you are a troll and a general asshat, quit requesting me on questions I’m just going to report and merge them.
    People like you just trying to make a few pennies off of QPP are destroying this site and hurting the people with real questions and the experts who donate their time to answer them.
    Keep it up and I promise I’ll make sure they term your account.

  5. In standard measurement, it is 1/2 cup.
    Get yourself a conversion app on your phone, or do a search for a conversion website or PC app. Your cooking will burn down the house if you leave the stove each time to ask the answer on Quora.

  6. Well um let’s see. Last time I checked 8 oz equaled a cup so 4 oz is half of 8 which would then equal wow you quessed it a half cup.

  7. 4oz is 1/5th of a pint, 1 teacupful is 1/3rd of a pint= 6.66667oz, 1 teamugful is 1/2 pint = 10 oz.
    4 / 6.66667 = .5999997 of a teacupful

  8. I’m not sure who poses some of these questions – did this come from a random word generator?
    First of all, “oz” can be fluid ounces (a measure of volume) or dry ounces (a measure of weight). Generally fluid ounce is abbreviated fl-oz, but if this came from a cook book, then I’m guessing if calls for water, then it would mean volume.
    In such a case, assuming the question refers to fluid ounces, then it’s a half cup in US measure, as here is no “Imperial cup” of volume. In terms of weight, ounce has no US or Imperial version, there is only one measure.
    So, if the question refers to 4 ounces of weight, then it’s also equal to 4 US fluid ounces of volume when water is at just at boiling point, but still 100% liquid. If water is cooled down, then it decreases in volume, and the same 4 oz would occupy 4% less volume at 4C, when water is at its densest. At 4C, 4 ounce weight of water would occupy 3.84 US fluid ounces.

  9. Daniel I’m not sure what country you live in but in America were the United States eight ounces is considered an average cup size. And the reason I can make that statement is I just came back from Google and that’s what they said I trust him I’m 82 and I drink about 14 cups of coffee every two days so I’m into coffee big time matter of fact I’m sitting here in my recliner having a cup right now one that I made earlier today but I really hated it in my microwave I do that all the time it’s convenient once you get into that microwave and learn how to use the power power to get the proper heat that you want for everything you want to reheat it’s just it works quite nicely

  10. This question is very ambiguous, since there are several types of cups in the world!
    Assuming that “oz” means fluid ounces (US), then
    I cup (US) = 8 fl oz
    I think there are three possible answers in US cups, metric cups and imperial cups
    In USA, 4 fl oz = 1/2 cup (US)= 120 mL approx
    1 metric cup = 250 mL,
    so 4 fl oz = 120*1/250 metric cup = 0.48 metric cup
    1 imp cup = 284.131 mL (internet),
    so 4 fl oz = 120 * 1/284.131 imp cup = 0.42 imp cup

  12. It all depends on the size of the cup. A large cup may hold a greater amount of water than a small cup. SO DON’T ASK SUCH SILLY QUESTIONS, I answer this as someone who has made pottery and cups are not standard sizes. Although in cookery I suppose they use a cup as a measurement. So I would suggest that you do an experiment and FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF.

  13. 4 fl. oz. is half a cup. Ounces (oz.) are units that measure dry substances while fl. oz. measure the volumes of liquids in the Imperial system.

  14. 8 fluid oz is 1 cup so 4oz is half a cup.
    But the question may mean the “oz” in terms of weight rather than volume; in that case:
    The density of water is typically 0.9587oz/fl-oz (usually treated as 1, but the question comes up so I am wondering if this is a trick?)
    (4/0.9587) for the number of fl-oz per oz-weight, then divide that by 8 to get the volume of water in cups.
    You own a calculator.

  15. 1/2 cup.
    although all cups are not same, nor standardised at 8 oz. size, it is assumed that if the cup was standard 8 oz. size, 4 oz. water would fill 1/2 cup.

  16. If you are using tiny little 1oz cups, then 4. However if you mean a proper imperial measure cup…. Then half…. 4oz of water would be half a cup.

  17. 4 ounces is half US cup which is 8 ounces. On your coffee maker, one cup is 5 ounces so it’s slightly under 1 cup on your coffee pot.

  18. 1 US fluid Ounce = .125 cup
    .96 US fluid ounce= 1 US ounces by weight at near freezing but weighs .96 US ounces at boiling
    So 4 fluid ounces = (4*.125) =.5 cups
    Or (4*.96)= 3.84 ounces by weight

  19. One cup is defined as 8 fluid ounces, so 4 fluid ounces is half a cup. You could have discovered this instantly if you’d bothered to use an online search engine like Google, Bing, etc.

  20. Assuming US units:
    1 fl oz = 1/8 cup
    4 fl oz = 4 * 1/8 = 4/8 = 1/2 cup
    in decimals:
    1 fl oz = 0.125 cup
    4 fl oz = 4 * 0.125 = 0.5 cup
    Answer: 4 fl oz = 1/2 cup = 0.5 cup.

  21. One cup (US) is equal to 8 fluid ounces (US).
    So: ( 4 fl)( \frac{1cup}{8\text{fl}} ) = 1/2 cup.
    Please note the ounce ( oz ) is measuring weight while a fluid ounce ( fl ) is measuring volume. One pound is equal to 16 ounces while one pint is equal to 16 fluid ounces.

  22. It is pretty simple to Google a unit conversion site to get the answer of one-half cup = 4 ounces. The more profound question is whether it is half empty or half full!

  23. How many cups is 4oz of water?

    4 oz of water equals 0.5 cups . See below for the cups to ounces conversion for 4 ounces of water, sugar, honey, milk, flour and more.

  24. One half. Which is technically “cup”, as in singular, not plural as written, “cups”.
    But a simple Google search would have answered this. Bigger question is “why waste space on Quora on this?

  25. Type “4 oz in cups” in Google to find that it’s half a cup. However, note that this uses a standard 8 ounce cup. Some use nonstandard cup sizes. For example, a coffee maker may say it makes 5 cups of coffee, but those are only 6 ounce “cups”.

  26. 1/2 cup.
    8 oz = 1 cup 1/2 pint;
    16 oz. = 2 cups
    1 pint;
    32 oz = 1 quart;
    128 oz = 1 gallon.
    USA shoulda gone Metric when it was first proposed 50+ years ago. MUCH simpler when counting out on ten fingers when it’s base 10, not 8.
    And don’t get me started when it’s inches & feet rather than milli-/centi-/deci-/meter!
    Who the heck has 12 fingers?

  27. Four fluid ounces of water is 1/2 cup.
    On the imperial scale one fluid ounce equals one ounce by weight so 4 oz by weight is still 1/2 cup.

  28. This is one of those questions that Google can answer in less time than it takes to log into Quora just to post the question.
    The answer comes a lot sooner, as well.
    But I’ll still answer.
    It depends on the cup.
    If you’re talking about a cup that is coffee-cup-ish, it is supposed to hold 6 ounces (similar to a British tea cup), but US coffee mugs are 8 ounces. Except when they aren’t, because most are around 11 ounces, which looks like a lot of liquid, feels substantial, and just feels “better.”
    If you’re talking about a standard measuring cup, however, one cup is 8 ounces.
    Therefore 4 ounces of water is one half of one cup. Not even enough for a cappuccino.

  29. It depends. How big is your cup?
    It’s a huge bugbear of mine when looking up recipes online. I can handle the conversions from idiotic imperial measures. But what the fuck is a ‘cup’. I own cups that vary in volume for about 150 ml (for espesso) to around 500 ml (when I need a really big cup of tea).
    Please, why can’t ‘Merkins get into the 19th century and switch to a sensible system of weights and measures?

  30. This is an example of the kinds of questions that make a mockery of this site. Quora used to be a rather intelligent place that people could find information that was useful. Questions that brought out people with real and interesting subjects. This is just becoming trashy now. Too bad.

  31. Liquid measuring cups indicate that 1 cup = 8 ounces . But what they really mean is 1 cup of liquid = 8 fluid ounces
    4 oz there fore is one half cup.

  32. It is 1/2 of a cup, assuming that the measurement standard for ounces and cups is the same. One little-known fact is that the Imperial and American ounces were not the same size. That slight difference was also reflected in the size of the cup measurement. It was also reflected in the difference in the size …


  33. 4 oz equals 0.50 cups. 1 ounce is equivalent to 0.125 cups, and there are 0.50 cups in 4 ounces. This is the standard value for US cups.

  34. I’m assuming you are asking about a liquid cup used for measurement, as the term “cup” is very general and can mean anything from a measurement of bra size, to a generic container to hold liquid, to a protective jockstrap, to a trophy.
    One liquid cup is defined as 8 ounces, so since 4 ounces is half of 8 ounces, 4 ounces is one half cup.

  35. Go to Google and type in any conversion needed, like oz to cups, kg to lbs, ferlongs to days, or light years to miles. Type in the independent variable and it will spit out the answer:

    How many cups is 4oz of water?

  36. none…4 oz of water can never be a cup…it will always be water…
    you can put it in a cup…and it will be half full…but still water

  37. In the US, ounces are a measurement of volume or it can refer to a measurement of weight. Water is usually measured in volume. 4 oz. Is equal to 1/2 US cup. Cheers!

  38. 0.5 cup
    Fluid Ounces (oz) to Cups ConversionTo convert fluid oz to cups, multiply the fluid oz value by 0.125 or divide by 8. For example, to calculate how many cups is 4 fl oz of water, multiply 4 by 0.125, that makes 0.5 cup is 4 fl oz.

  39. To convert fluid oz to cups, multiply the fluid oz value by 0.125 or divide by 8. For example, to calculate how many cups is 4 fl oz of water, multiply 4 by 0.125, that makes 0.5 cup is 4 fl oz.

  40. Most cups hold about 8 oz of water or any other liquid. That will mean 4 oz is equal to half a cup. However, you can get smaller or larger cups. I have seen cups which only only hold 2 oz. That means 4oz will fill up 2 cups. I have also seen cups which can hold 16oz liquid. That means your 4 oz will fill 1/4 cup.
    I hope this replies your question.

  41. How many cups is 4oz of water?
    Here is a place where you can look up any volumetric conversion you like.
    volume converter at DuckDuckGo

  42. 4 oz the weight, or 4 fl. oz. the volume?
    4 fl. oz. = 1/2 cup = 1/16 qt. = 1/16 x 0.94 = 0.059liters
    or 4 oz. = 1/4lb x 453g/lb = 113.25g

  43. This question and the fact that 20 people have given it serious responses is killing Quora. Daniel, if you have access to Quora, you can just look this stuff up.
    What next?
    Quora will probably delete this response, but they should really be deleting frivolous questions.

  44. Thank you for the A2A
    4 oz is .5 or one half of a cup 1/2
    4 US fluid ounces =0.5 cup
    Here is a table of measurement for you-
    4 tablespoons= 1/4 cup= 2 ounces
    2 ounces=4 tablespoons
    1/3 cup=2.6 ounces
    8 tablespoons=1/2 cup
    4 ounces=8 tablespoons
    3/4 cup=6 ounces
    32 tablespoons=2 cups

  45. Well, the Imperial cup is \text{8 fluid ounces} of water, approx. 250•mL .
    And so \text{4 fluid ounces} \equiv \dfrac{1}{2} a cup…

  46. There are about 8 fluid oz in a US cup and 10 imperial ounces in an imperial cup
    So 4 fluid oz are about 1/2 (0.5) US cup or 4/10 (0.4) Imperial cup

  47. Why the hell are you wasting my time when you already have 100+ answers to a question you could simply have found the answer to on Google. What a moron!!!

  48. I guess that depends on how big is your cup? Water is good because it is used as a standard for measuring density so once you know the density of a substance you can covert easily between mass and volume.
    Normally when we talk of weight we mean mass. But in physics we get very particular about these terms.
    So 4 ounces, is 113.398 grams and I was always told that is equal to 113.398 millilitres.
    Now this is where defining your cup comes into it. Maybe that’s where the phrase “my cup runneth over” comes from.
    So Wikipedia tells me there is such a thing as a US legal cup, defined as 240mls. So 4 Oz. Looks like about half a legal cup?
    It also says a us cooking cup is half a pint or 8 ozs.
    I prefer my cups between 200mls and 250 millilitres. So I would call 4 ozs half a cup.
    Interesting Wikipedia also defines 4 ozs as a coffee cup. I think that looks like a mccafe
    cup. Although I have never figured out what a regular , grand or Grande , medium or mega coffee cup size is.
    I may be tempted to ask about cups and pan galactic gargle blasters.
    Hope that helps.

  49. So I might be wrong in this but as far as I remember ml=g so if that’s true then there are 28.35 grams per oz so
    28.35 g x4 =113.4 g so there’s 250 ml per cup so there is half a cup for 4 oz of water approximately

  50. I believe there are NO FULL CUPS In 4 oz. of water…but considering there are 8 oz in cup…then divide 8 oz by 4 oz and you will find it goes in evenly twice… or 4/8 which therefore 4 oz is 1/2 cup…

  51. If you are talking about measurement; 1 cup is 8 oz or 250 ml, so 4 oz would be 1/2 cup. However tea cups vary in size ie: 4 oz, 6 oz or other sizes.

  52. You can compute the conversion between any standard units of volume. A cup is defined as a standard unit of measure and is defines as 16 ounces. So, four ounces is 4/16th of a cup which is the same as a quarter cup.
    You can check out the conversions for many units of volume at the vCalc calculator:
    vCalc has in this one calculator conversions between any of the following units of volume:
    cubic meters
    cubic millimeters
    cubic centimeters
    cubic kilometers
    cubic inches
    cubic feet
    cubic yards
    cubic miles
