Hon Sei,

It depends what you are measuring!

If you are converting water or milk, then 1 cup weighs 250gr
If you are converting Corn or canola oil, 1 cup weighs 242.5 gr

When it comes to flour, it varies greatly depending on the specific type of flour since different flours have different densities depending on the variety, the time of year, if they have been sifted etc. There is no singular conversion that converts all volumes to weights.

Sorry I could not be of more help.
