Default Grams to Cups for a Recipe

I am in America and I need to know the conversions for a couple of items in a recipe that was given to me:
500g self rising flour = how many cups?
500g granulated sugar = how many cups?
200g of butter = how many cups? or even how many sticks of butter?

I really appreciate your assistance! Thank you!

Sheila

500g self rising flour, 125 g/cup, so 4 cups
500g granulated sugar, 200 g/cup, so 2.5 cups
200g of butter, 113 g/stick, so just over 1.75 sticks

USDA database says 230 g/cup, so 2.17 cups, about 2 cups 1.5 fl oz.

Different substances have different densities. A cup of lead weighs more than a cup of water weighs more than a cup of air.

Unfortunately the best data source for foods is the USDA nutritional database (listed in our Resources forum) and it is offline due to the government shutdown.

Bacon is sold by weight and 250 g is just over a half pound, about 0.55 lb.

100 g of mozzarella is about 3.5 oz. Buy 4 oz (1/4 lb) at deli and remove a little.

At the moment , I can't help on the gnocci.
Edit: Gnocci is also sold by weight, 500 g is a little over 1 lb, about 1.1 pound. Note packaged foods in the US are labeled in both metric and Customary units.
