You are probably cooking and following a recipe and you need to know exactly how many cups is 32 oz. The answer is that it depends on what you are weighing. To convert cups into ounces first we need to know what we are putting in the cup. The difference is because of the weight and mass of what you are trying to measure. Whether it is flower or sugar or any other ingredient.
32 oz of fluids equal 4 cups since 1 cup of fluids equates to 8 oz each. If you are weighing dry ingredients, then different rules apply. Depending on the density of each dry ingredient.
When it comes to dry ingredients there is quite a difference, depending on the ingredient you are measuring. Different dry ingredients will have different densities, which will make one weigh more than the other.
There are roughly 7 cups in 32 oz of flour. This is because flour is a dry ingredient that has a low density, so it is not as heavy as sugar for example
There are 7½ cups of powdered sugar in a 32 oz bag.
There are 4½ cups of sugar in 32 oz if it is granulated.
If it is raw sugar it equates to 3 ⅔ cups. Raw sugar has a higher density than granulated sugar, which makes it heavier when comparing the same cubic centimeters.
|Ounces||32 oz||32 oz||32 oz|
|Cups||3 ⅔ cups||4½ cups||7½ cups|
Comparing a cup with an ounce is impossible if we do not know what we are measuring. Different ingredients have different densities, which makes a cup of one of them different in weight. Therefore a cup of flour will not weigh as much as a cup of sugar.
No, 2 cups do not equal 32 ounces of fluids. 4 cups equal roughly 32 ounces for fluids. It is also the equivalent of 64 tablespoons.
