# How many cups is one hundred grams?

**4 Answers**

It depends on what you are measuring. For example: 100g of water is about 0.42 cups. 100g of sugar is about 0.5 cups. 100g of flour is about 0.75 cups. 100g of mercury is about 0.03 cups.

100 grams is equal to half a cup.

Gram is a unit of weight, cup is a unit of volume. 100 grams is about three quarter cups of flour or 3.5 ounces of butter or just under half a cup. It is entirely dependent upon the density of the material measured.

The number of grams in a cup varies based upon the ingredient because the cup is a unit of volume and the gram is a unit of weight. For example, 1 cup of flour is equal to around 125 grams, and 1 cup of sugar is equal to around 200 grams.
