How many cups are there in a quart?
Although the quarts and cups capacities are different between the measurement systems, there are 4 cups in a quart in US and in the imperial system (UK).
Here is how:
In United States, 1 fluid quart has a capacity of 32 fluid ounces (946.353 mL) and 1 cup has a capacity of 8 fluid ounces (236.588 mL). That makes 32 / 8 = 4 cups in a quart in US.
For UK (Imperial System):
In the imperial system (UK), 1 quart has a capacity of 40 imperial fluid ounces (1136.52 mL) and 1 imperial cup has a capacity of 10 imperial fluid ounces (284.131 mL). That makes 40 / 10 = 4 imperial cups in an imperial quart in UK.
Please note that, UK now use the metric cups (250 mL) and there are 4.54 metric cups in an imperial quart. But if you need the quart to cup conversion from the old recipes, then you may still need the use the capacities from the imperial quarts and the cups.
