Calculating Intake and Output Test
Convert the following fluids to cubic centimeters so that you could enter them on an Intake and Output Sheet.

1.      4 oz of orange juice                      =                ___________ cc’s
2.      8oz carton of milk                        =                ___________ cc’s
3.      ¾ of a 12 oz can of soda                  =                ___________ cc’s
4.      ½ of a 10 oz cup of coffee                =                ___________ cc’s
5.      ¾ of water in pitcher (1 pint)            =                ___________ cc’s
6.      4 tablespoons of soup                     =                ___________ cc’s
7.      ½ of ice cream cup (4oz)                  =                ___________ cc’s
