Our Cups to Grams Converter simplifies the process of converting volume measurements (cups) to mass measurements (grams) for various ingredients commonly used in cooking and baking. Simply enter the quantity in cups, select the ingredient from the drop-down menu, and click "Convert." The tool will instantly provide the equivalent mass in grams, making it easy to follow recipes with precision.

Converting from cups to grams involves understanding the density of the substance being measured, as different ingredients have different densities. The formula for converting cups to grams is:

grams = cups × 236.588 × ingredient density (in g/ml or g/cm³

To illustrate this formula, let's consider an example:

Suppose a recipe calls for 2 cups of all-purpose flour, and we want to determine the equivalent mass in grams. The density of all-purpose flour is approximately 125 grams per cup.

Using the formula:

Mass (grams)=Volume (cups)×Density (grams/cup)Mass (grams)=Volume (cups)×Density (grams/cup)

Mass (grams)=2 cups×125 grams/cupMass (grams)=2 cups×125 grams/cup

Mass (grams)=250 gramsMass (grams)=250 grams

Therefore, 2 cups of all-purpose flour is equivalent to 250 grams.
