1 cup is how many mL?

  1. 1 I'm just confused coz at school we're taught that 1 cup=180mL and 1 glass=240 mL. And I was reading a book awhile ago it says that 1 cup=240 mL.

    correct me if i'm wrong

    heart sound landmarks
    aortic - 2nd ICS right sternal border
    pulmonic - 2nd ICS left sternal border
    erb's point - 3rd ICS left sternal border
    tricuspid - 4th ICS left sternal border
    mitral (PMI) - 5th ICS left midclavicular line
    angle of louis - manubrial sternal junction at the second rib

    i'm confused with the tricuspid coz it says in a book that its located at the 4th ICS and another book says 5th ICS. Which is which?

    If your talking about drinking cups-

    6oz cup(juice glass?)=180ml
    8oz glass(beverage glass?)= 240ml

    It just say 2 cups of water. I'm practicing answering questions and happen to bump on this. How can you figure out if that cup the question is talking about is an 8oz or a 6 oz cup?

    The school might be speaking of drinking cups at facilities. The book is speaking of the standard US measuremet of 1 cup. So when doing the questions in the book and the NCLEX you would go with the STANDARD measurement. Not what your school said a cup is. Your school might have said a glass is 240mL because most drinking glasses (the big ones) are 8 ounce glasses. But in all reality:

    1 US cup = 8 US fluid ounces

    so 8oz x 30=240mL


    8 ounces is 1 cup
    16 ounces is 2 cups which is 1 pint
    32 ounces is 4 cups which is 2 pints which is 1 quart
    128 ounces is 16 cups which is 8 pints which is 4 quarts which is 1 gallon
