In american recipes, how much in weight is meant by a cup ?

I have a recipe for a sugar free low fat carrot cake (I know it sounds rotten but it looks lovely if you have the whole recipe) that i want to make for my boyfriend who has to have a low fat, low sugar diet. It is an american recipe though and the amounts are in cups, as in 1/2 cup flour, etc. What weight exactly is meant by a cup.

Answer on In american recipes, how much in weight is meant by a cup ?

A cup is 8 Fluid OZ

Solids is another thing and there are lots of variables
