Capacity is the amount a container can hold.

Customary Metric
1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons
8 fl oz = 1 cup
2 cups = 1 pint
2 pints = 1 quart
2 quarts = 1/2 gallon
4 quarts = 1 gallon

The milliliter (mL) is a metric unit used to measure the capacities of small containers.

The liter (L) is equal to 1,000 mL, so it is used to measure the capacities of larger containers.
