A dry cup measure measures the same volume as a liquid cup measure. They both will measure one volumetric cup or 8 fluid ounces. Two cups will then be 16 fluid ounces. Fluid ounces (volumetric) are different from avoirdupois ounces (weight).

The weight of a certain volume of material depends upon its density. One cup of water does not have the same weight as one cup of table salt, even though they are the same volume.
