1 cup is a US measurement. It is equal to 237 ml. This site may be helpful to you:

it depends on what you are weighing - 1 cup of flour will weigh differently to one cup of sugar. you can buy a measuring cup - lakeland has them, but you get them a few places now, but weighing is more accurate! www.ask.com is apparently good for answering these questions!
