# Converting grams in a cup – cooking tips

Converting grams in a cup is considered to be very important to know because it is going to help you out in your daily life in the kitchen. On a regular basis, there are so many ingredients in the kitchen, which are required to be converted from grams to cups.

## So, how to convert grams in a cup?

Here are 2 main formulas that are used to convert the value of the gram into the value of the cup very easily. Have a look at the same.

1. Weight = cups x cups size x density
2. Cups = weight divided by ( cup size x density )

Yes! The above-mentioned two formulas and equations are very complicated. Because only providing the value of grams in it will not be sufficient. In fact, we also have to give the value of density in it as well in order to convert any number from grams in a cup.

However, providing the density of any Cup is not that easy because each cup has its own density. Therefore, according to the United States of America, a study is been done in which they have found out a few basic types of cups and their density in volume. The same is mentioned below in the article. Have a look at the same.
