For a specific volume, the quantity (or weight) of liquids such as water, milk, soy sauce and of dry ingredients such as granulated sugar or salt are pretty consistent because their density is invariable.

Unfortunately, measuring other dry ingredients such as flour and bulk foods such as shredded cheese or chopped vegetables with a cup is not as precise, since those ingredients can be compressed to a variable degree.

For example, the weight of 1 cup of all-purpose flour varies from about 100 grams if sifted to 150 grams if scooped.
