117 cups is about five-and-a-half times as big as a Bowling Ball.
In other words, it's 5.25318214570 times the size of a Bowling Ball, and the size of a Bowling Ball is 0.190360808410 times that amount.
(USBC specifications; tenpin)
According to United States Bowling Congress specifications, a tenpin bowling ball should measure at least 10.795 cm (4.25 in) in radius for a total volume of about 22.2722145850 cups. Because regulation balls measure the same diameter irrespective of their weight, ball density varies by size and balls weighing less than about 5 kg (11 lbs) will float in water.
