One cup is equal to two tablespoons or half a fluid ounce. Cup measurements are traditionally used in the United States and Canada, while the metric system is more popular in other places around the world.
Many cooking measurements, such as teaspoons and tablespoons, originate from apothecaries’ system of measurement. According to livestrong.com, this regionally popular system used a liquid pint (a liquid pound) as well as a dry pint and a liquid gallon that were both equal to about eight pounds.

There are 16 ounces in one U.S. cup of liquid or mass, but this measurement differs for dry measurements because the density of the food has a larger role in the equation. In some cases, one cup of dry materials is equivalent to as much as 48 ounces of liquid.
