Are you trying to cut down on your plastic water bottle usage? Doing so is a good idea, since Americans purchase 50 billion water bottles yearly!
One of the best ways to cut down on plastic water bottles is to buy a refillable water bottle. But you may notice they come in a whole lot of sizes. Youre probably asking questions such as, how many cups of water are in a water bottle? Let’s answer this question and explain why water bottle sizes matter in this guide.
There are 4 cups in 32 ounces of water. In the United States, the customary conversion is 8 fluid ounces per cup. Therefore, to find the number of cups in 32 ounces, you would divide 32 by 8, resulting in 4 cups.
Why Is Water Bottle Size Important?
While water bottle size can fit different lifestyles and preferences, its important to know your water bottle size. Why? To ensure you drink enough water daily.
The average adult needs to drink a halfgallon of water every day. If that sounds pretty daunting, let’s break it down. A half gallon equals 8 cups, which also equals 64 ounces.
Say you purchase a 32ounce water bottle, which equals 4 cups. You need to drink two of those a day to get your daily water consumption. Easy peasy. Drinking two water bottles is a lot easier to remember than multiple mathematical formulas.
This is also important for kids. The amount of water the average child needs depends on their age. Here is what’s recommended:
 13 years of age: 4 cups (32 ounces)
 48 years of age: 5 cups (40 ounces)
 Older than 8 years of age: 78 cups (5664 ounces)
Keep in mind that milk is also included in this figure for toddlers (13 years old).
So if you purchase a 14 oz water bottle for your nineyearold, they’llhey need to drink at least four bottles to get their daily recommended water intake.
How Many Cups of Water Are in a Water Bottle?
To answer this question, we first have to discuss the difference between cups and ounces.
Most sellers have their water bottles listed in ounces and not cups. There are different reasons why a seller may do this, but measuring in ounces is more popular since water is liquid. (Thank you, science classes.) While cups are commonly used to measure liquid in the US, they also measure solid foods. A seller may use ounces to take away any confusion about their product—that its only used for liquid and not solid food.
With that being said, how do you know how many cups are in your water bottle if the measurement is in ounces? It takes simple math to figure this out: 8 ounces = one cup.
To figure out how many cups are in your water bottle, divide the ounces by 8 to find out the cups. And hey, if you don’t want to do the math, we’ve got your back. Heres a breakdown of common water bottle sizes in ounces and their cup equivalents:
 19 ounces = about 2.4 cups
 24 ounces = 3 cups
 32 ounces = 4 cups
 40 ounces = 5 cups
Use this formula to decide which water bottle size is right for you. If youre still unsure, don’t worry! We’llll chat about daily recommended water intake requirements in another section.
