Default Grams of DME converted to volume

Hi all
I am making a starter and forgot that my friend has my scale. I now am trying to figure out how much 100 grams is in like cups or tablespoons or something like that. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me with this.

Grams and volume don't really convert. That's like asking how many cups in a pound of lead.

But to get a starter of about 1.040, 1/2 cup DME to 2 cups of water works pretty well.
