1 cup = 250ml = 250g
water = 1g / ml

for other liquids it's guesswork, but juice should be pretty similar to water. shouldn't make a lick of difference though since you're not baking

Assume the density of fruit juice is roughly equal to that of water.
One cup is roughly 250 ml, therefore:
1/3 cup = 83g
1/4 cup = 63g

Wow, what recipe are you doing which really needs to be that precise? Usually recipes call for you to squeeze half a lemon or a whole lime or whatever and you adjust to taste.

cups are a volume measure
grams are a weight measure

it would depend on the density of the item

Clearly. But fruit juice is mostly water and therefore the density of water would be close enough.

Because beginner cooks haven't yet learned to taste as they go and adjust accordingly. They want exact details spoon-fed to them. As they gain experience this will disappear. Same thing applies to cooking times: at first they will demand exact time and stove settings. Then after a while they'll learn to rely on their senses and observation instead.

What is specific gravity?

Just buy measuring cups for when you want to make American recipes. It's what I did.
