Cup measurement of chocolate

I am currently reviewing a new cookbook and testing recipes. I am familiar in using metric, imperial and cup measurements though have never come across a cup measurement for chocolate before. Is someone able to give me either an imerial or metric measurement/weight for 1 1/2 cups of chocolate. please?

Many thanks.

I have found this website useful Online Conversion - Weight to Volume Cooking Conversion

It has the cup/weight conversion for lots of things and includes several chocolate variants.

For chocolate chips the following is true:

1 cup = 160 grams

so 1 1/2 would be 240 grams

However, if its coco powder:

1 Cup = 120 grams, so 1 1/2 cups would be 180 grams.
