It depends on what you are measuring

Depends what you have in the cup. A cup is a measure of volume, but a gram is a measure of mass.

Depending on the density of the material you are going to have in the cup, the weight in grams of the material will vary. For example, if you fill the cup with lead, the cup will weigh much more than if you fill with feathers. 
A cup of water will weigh more than a cup of flour.

For cooking, you can find tables that convert cups to grams and vice versa for a variety of food. To the left is a link with a table for standard cooking ingredients. Make sure you look carefully and scroll down to find the correct conversion table specific ingredient you are using! The conversion is different for each ingredient!
Here are A FEW COMMON FOODS and their conversion from cups to grams (notice how much the weight varies!):

Granulated sugar: 1 cup = 200 grams
Brown sugar: 1 cup, packed = 220 grams
Sifted white flour: 1 cup = 125 grams

it depends on the density of the ingredient you are measuring. Luckily, the nutrition label for many foods has a serving size listed in both volume and weight, which you can use for conversion.
