Hello poetryinmotion,

I'm glad that you included the word "approximate" in your question,
because the estimate of weight per volume varies.  It appears that the
USDA has estimated 120 grams per cup for whole wheat flour and 102
grams per cup of rye flour.

"Flour Weights"

"Measuring Tips and Techniques" [under "Dry and Solid Measures"]
Hormel Foods

However, I have also seen 140 grams per cup for wheat flour; and
presumably, there are other measures for rye flour too.

"How to Measure Flour"

Given the figures of 120 grams and 102 grams, the volumes would be
approximately 2.08 cups and 2.45 cups, respectively.

Super. This was exactly what I was hoping to get. I'm sure even
different varieties of wheat flour will vary somewhat. I have a recipe
calling for 250 grams of flour. This answer was perfect -- and fast.
