CONVERSIONS OF WEIGHTS, MEASUREMENTS AND TEMPERATURES

Many times a recipe will specify a can size or be in metric so here are some conversions for you. Please note that MANY of the following equivalents are rounded off, and are NOT exact.

CONVERSION CHART FOR CUP and CAN MEASUREMENTS

8 oz. = 1 cup
Picnic size = 1 1/4 cups or 10 oz.
#300 can = 1 3/4 cups or 12 oz.
#1 tall can = 2 cups or 16 oz.
#303 can = 2 cups or 16 oz.
#2 can (20 oz. can) = 2 1/2 cups or 20 oz.
#2 1/2 can = 3 1/2 cups or 28 oz.
#3 can = 4 cups or 24 oz.
#10 can = 12-13 cups or 6 lbs., 10 oz.

2 lb. = 905 g.
2 1/4 lb. = 1018 g.
3 lb. = 1.4 kilogram
10 oz. (many frozen foods) = 280 g.
10 1/2 oz. (canned soup) = 294g.
15 oz. = 425 g.
1 lb. 24 oz. (large can size) 850 g.

WEIGHTS AND MEASURES

a few grains = less than 1/8 t.
60 drops = 1 t.
1 1/2 t. = 1/2 T.
3 t. = 1 T.
2 T. = 1/8 c. (or 1 fluid oz.)
4 T. = 1/4 c.
5 1/3 T. = 1/3 c.
8 T. = 1/2 c.
10 2/3 T. = 2/3 c.
12 T. = 3/4 c.
16 T. = 1 c.
3/8 c. = 1/4 c. plus 2 T.
5/8 c. = 1/2 c. plus 2 T.
7/8 c. = 3/4 c. plus 2 T.
1 c. = 8 fluid oz.
2 c. = 1 pt. (or 16 fluid oz.)
2 pt. = 1 qt. (or 32 fluid oz.)
4 c. = 1 qt.
4 qt. = 1 gal.
8 qt. = 1 peck
4 pecks = 1 bushel
16 oz. = 1 lb.
1 g. = 0.035 oz.
1 kilogram = 2.21 lb.
1 oz. = 28.35 g.
1 lb. = 453.59 g.
1 t. = 4.9 milliliters
1 T. = 14.8 milliliters
1 c. = 236.6 milliliters
1 liter = 1.06 quarts (or 1000 milliliters)

METRIC CONVERSION FACTORS

WEIGHT

1 oz. = 28.35 g.
1 g. = 0.035 oz.
1 lb. = 453.59 g.
1 kilogram = 2.21 lb.

VOLUME

1 fluid oz. = 29.57 ml.
1 ml. = 0.034 oz.
1 c. = 236.6 ml.
1 qt. = 946 ml.
1 liter = 33.8 fl. oz.

LENGTH

1 inch = 25.4 millimeters
1 centimeter = 0.39 inch
1 meter = 39.4 inches
TEMPERATURE

To convert Fahrenheit to Celsius:

Subtract 32. Then multiply by 5/9.
Example: convert 140°F to Celsius.
140 – 32 = 108
108 x 5/9 = 60°C.

To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit:

Multiply by 9/5. Then add 32.
Example: convert 150°C to Fahrenheit.
150 x 9/5 = 270
270 + 32 = 302°F
