Full Answer

Ounces, teaspoons, tablespoons and cups are measurements of the volume of substances, while grams measure the weight of a substance. The weight of solids can differ even if substances have the same volume. For instance, 1 cup of flour and 1 cup of white sugar are the same volume, but they are not the same weight. The weight of 1 cup of flour equals 125 grams, while 1 cup of white sugar equals 200 grams.
