Chris Paulk's picture

1 cup 8 fluid ounces/ 1/2 pint 16 tablespoons 237 ml

Half of that would be:

1/2 cup 4 fluid ounces 8 tablespoons 118 ml

You need 1/2 cup.

Since your doing a test I presume that accuracy is important to you. Hence, you should be aware of the following, depending on whether you are using a "US" oz measure or a"Canadian" oz measure:

(a) One US oz is = 29.57 ml
Therefore 1/2 cup or 4oz = 118.29 ml

(b) One Canadian oz is = 28.41 ml
Therefore 1/2 cup or 4 oz = 113.7 ml
