    amount in cups = amount in ml / 237.
  • to calculate the number of ml in cups, you should multiply it by 237:
    amount in ml = amount in cups × 237.

How do I perform 2/3 cup convert to ml?

To express 2/3 cup in ml:

  1. Remember that there are 237 ml in one cup.
  2. The number of ml in the given number of cups can be written as amount in ml = 237 ml × number of cups.
  3. In our case, amount in ml = (237 ml / cup) × (2/3 cups) = 158 ml.

The answer is: 2/3 of a cup equals 158 ml.

How do I measure ml without a measuring cup?

If you have to measure ml (milliliters) without a measuring cup, try one of those methods:

  1. Use a teaspoon or a tablespoon — a teaspoon contains about 5 ml, and a tablespoon about 15 ml.
  2. Use a standard glass — a full glass contains about 250 ml, and half of a glass is around 125 ml.
  3. Use a kitchen scale — when measuring liquids, you can assume that 1 g = 1 ml, 10 g = 10 ml etc.
  4. Use an empty bottle with a known given volume.
