Both cups and millimeters are common measurement amounts used in cooking, so it makes sense to cross-reference how they would be used together. In this case, 500 ml equals 2.1 cups.

If you need to be able to do some math to figure out other ml to cup, or vice versa measurements, here’s a table to show you the most useful conversions for both cups to ml and ml to cups. Further down we’ll show you how to do the math yourself if you need additional conversions.

How to Convert ml to Cups

One cup equals exactly 236.588 ml. For simplicity, we’re going to round that number to 237. To come up with the total cups in 100 ml, we would just divide 100 by 237, for a total of 0.421. You can reference the above table to see that rounding up to 237 had a very minimal effect.

How much is 500ml in cups?

Using the example above, we know that 100ml equals 0.422 cups. Multiply that by five and we have a total of roughly 2.11 cups. If you need an exact amount, don’t round the numbers and instead use the proper scientific measurements.

How to Convert Cups to ml

As opposed to what we did above, we’re going multiply to figure out our cups to ml conversion. This time we take the 237 and multiply it by however many cups you have. For this example, we have three cups of water and we need to know roughly how many ml we have… Multiply 237 x 3, and we’ll see there are 711 ml of water in our three cups.

Measurement Systems (Imperial and Metric)

If you’re trying to follow a recipe, chances are they won’t mix and match what systems of measurement are used across the world. The United States primarily uses the imperial system, which includes inches, feet, pounds, gallons, yards, miles, etc…

The metric system instead uses measurements such as millimeters, centimeters, milligrams, centigrams, meters, and kilometers. In many cases, this is seen as the more efficient system as the units are easy to divide and multiply by 100.
