1. 2. 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.

3. 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…..so how many cups is 4oz.? It is exactly one-half cup. Hence one cup is 8oz in case someone would ask…lol

4. 5. 1 cup of water = 8 ounces,
8 ÷ 2 = 4,
1/2 cup of water = 4 ounces,
The correct answer is 1/2 cup of water.

6. 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.

7. One cup is 8 ounces therfore half of that is 4 ounces———so four ounces of any liquid is half a cup!!

8. 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.

9. 4 ounces of liquid is one half cup. This ids true of all liquids water, milk, soda etc

10. 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.

11. It depends . It could be 4 cups, one ounce in each cup, or 2 cups two ounces in each cup, or one cup filled with four ounces, etc.

12. 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

13. 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.

14. 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

15. It’s only 1/2 a cup

16. If the water is frozen, then four ounces of water will expand in volume to 0.545 British imperial cups.

17. 8 oz = 1 cup
4 oz is 1/2 of 8 oz which means it is also 1/2 of a cup
Therefore, 4oz is equivalent to 1/2 or 0.5 cups.

18. There are 8 fl oz (fluid ounces) of any liquid in one cup. So in answer to the question one-half cups of water is 4 fl oz.

19. A pint of water is a pound. 4oz of water would be 1/4 of a pint or 1/2 cup.

20. 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

21. 22. 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.

23. 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.

24. 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.

25. 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.

26. 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.

27. Assuming you are asking about the volume of water inside the container, 4 fluid ounces of water is 0.5 cups.

Peet’s

28. 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.

29. 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

30. 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.

31. 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.

32. Q . How many cups is 4oz of water?
A . 1 US fluid ounce = 0.125 US cup.
You do the math.

33. A cup normally measures 8 oz hence 4 oz is half a cup.

34. 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.

35. A cup is eight ounces. So, 4 ounces would be 4/8 of a cup. In simplest form, 4/8 is 1/2
Four ounces is one half cup.

36. 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!

37.  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.
Please note that converting 4 ounces of water to cups can vary slightly by room temperature, quality of the ingredient etc. But by using these conversion rates you can’t go wrong.
You can view more details on each measurement unit: cups or oz The SI derived unit for volume is the cubic meter. 1 cubic meter is equal to 4226.7528198649 cups, or 33814.022558919 oz.
Note that rounding errors may occur, so always check the results. Use this page to learn how to convert between cups and ounces. Type in your own numbers in the form to convert the units!

38. 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?

39. 4 oz equals 0.50 cups . 1 ounce is equivalent to 0.125 cups, and there are 0.50 cups in 4 ounces.

40. 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”.

41. 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?

42. 6 fluid ounces is a cup; therefore, 4 fl oz is 2/3 of a cup; 4/6. Use the 2/3 cup measuring cup.

43. 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.

44. 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.
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.

45. 46. 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?

47. 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.

48. 4 ounces is approximately 113 grams. A cup of water weighs in at 250 grams therefore 4 ounces = 113/250 cups or 0.45 of a cup.

49. 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.

50. 4 0z. Of water is 1/2 cup of water

51. 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 …

52. 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.

53. 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.

54. A cup is 8 oz, therefore 4 oz is 0.5 or 1/2 of a cup.

55. 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: 56. 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

57. 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!

58. In the US, a standard cup is 8 ounces, so 4 ounces is one-half cup.

59. 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.

60. 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.

61. Cup is equal to 8 fluid ounces (oz).There are 8 fluid ounces in 1 cup.
4 oz to cups = 0.5 cup in 4 oz.

62. 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.

63. With a 4oz cup, just one cup

64. 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

65. 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

66. Since a cup of liquid is 8 ounces, then 4 ounces is 1/2 cup = 0.5 cup.

67. 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.

68. 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

69. 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…

70. 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

71. 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!!!

72. Approximately 0.4 cups. Because the average measuring cup size is 8.4oz. Therefore 4/8.4 = 0.4 cups.

73. 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 H2G2.com about cups and pan galactic gargle blasters.
Hope that helps.

74. 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

75. 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…

76. 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.

77. Google is the fastest way to do conversions…
simply type “4 oz in cups” It’s also a good time to consider going metric.

78. 1 US cup = 8 fluid ozs.
4 fluid ozs. = 4/8 = 1/2 US cup
1 UK cup = 10 fluid ozs.
4 fluid ozs. = (4/10)*1 = 0.40 UK cup

79. In the U.S., a cup may be considered to be 8 ounces. So 4 counces = 1/2 cup =0.5 oz.

80. One cup consists of 8 fluid ounces, which means that 4 fluid ounces is in half of a cup.

81. 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.
