Weights can vary considerably depending on the method used to measure. The values here are calculated according to the Dip & sweep (also called scoop & level) method, where we dip the cup or measuring spoon into the flour to scoop it up and then without shaking or tapping sweep of the excess with the back of a knife or a spatula to level it.
Note: Since the volume measurement of an ingredient depends on how you pack the measuring cup/spoon and on the ingredient itself (how it is cut, its density, its water content), the volume-to-weight conversions are not absolute.
