# Windows 7: Volume To Weight Conversion Estimate

 01 Dec 2011 #1 seekermeister W7x64 Pro, SuSe 12.1/** W7 x64 Pro, XP MCE 6,804 posts Indian Territory Volume To Weight Conversion Estimate I understand that there is no precise answer to my question, because a dry powder, such as flour will vary on weight depending on it's compaction and humidity, but I'm wondering if anyone can give me a close approximation of how much a cup of flour weighs? My new bread machine is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, and I need to buy some ingredients to test it out. Since I do not go to the store often, I need enough to make at least a dozen loaves, perhaps more, but don't know how much to buy. My System Specs

I think that rye flour is somewhat heavier, but it should still work out close enough. My System Specs
