Remember the cartoon, as a boa constrictor measured in parrots? So in life: open the recipe, and there everything is painted in the "pinch" and ounces. Immersed in the search for information. But the trouble is: the numbers are so contradictory that you get even more confused. It's time to end this. Let's start small: how many in a teaspoon ml?

## How many teaspoon ml?

A teaspoon as a unit for measuring volume is widely used in cooking and pharmaceuticals. Common abbreviated name **-** hl By the way, a teaspoon as a convenient unit of volume has been used since the middle of the 17th century. It is approximately ⅓ from a tablespoon, 1/40 cup or 5 ml.

The unit of volume, equal to 1 × 10⁻³l, is a non-systemic metric value, partial in relation to a liter, and is called a milliliter. Accepted abbreviation **-** ml. A milliliter is equivalent to one cubic centimeter.

### Determine the amount of fluid

For recipes, liquid is usually measured in units of volume. One of the traditional tools for measuring the volume of a liquid is a teaspoon. Initially, it was equated to ¼ tablespoon, later this measure was revised and refined to parts. How much a teaspoon ml of liquid?

This is the ratio that the American dietary measurement system is using today. To be precise, one teaspoon contains 4.92892159375 milliliters. American nutrition for the volume of 1 tsp. takes 5 milliliters, the same value is considered to be metric teaspoon. But the British teaspoon a little more: they have taken the value of 5.9 milliliters. In general, for a unit of volume in the form of a teaspoon for culinary purposes, each country uses its own standard.

In our country, metric teaspoon has been adopted as a standard in cooking and dietetics. Thus, the volume of fluid is:

- 1 tsp. = 5 ml;
- dessert spoon (dl.) contains 2 tsp. = 10 ml;
- tablespoon (st. l.) is equivalent to 3 tsp. = 15 ml;
- faceted glass, filled to the level of the rim - 200 ml - 16 tbsp. l - 20 dl. = 40 tsp;
- faceted glass, filled to the brim - 250 ml - 12 d. l. + 1 tsp. = 50 tsp.

### How much does a teaspoon ml of dry foods?

Very often, in recipes, the required number of ingredients is indicated in spoons, in grams, in milliliters, and in glasses. Of course, you can find another recipe with a more adequate description, but you need to spend some time on it, which is always not enough. In addition, it can be an exceptionally important recipe, it is impossible to retreat from which not a jot, and it is impossible to find another one.

To save time and keep your nerve cells intact, we tried to collect disparate data in different units of measurement relative to the most popular culinary recipes.

It should be noted that all the data in the table correspond to a full spoon of a teaspoon or a canteen with a slide. In the case of glass, this is a faceted bowl filled to the brim. And of course, for ease of use, rounded values are calculated, calculated to one-tenth accuracy. By the way, to convert grams to milliliters, it is not enough to simply assign a few zeros to the indicators. Everything is a little more complicated.

Since we need to move from one system of measurements of a unit of volume to another, for each product there will be a corresponding conversion factor calculated by the formula V = W / ρ, where:

- V is the volume of a substance (m³ or l);
- W is the weight of the substance (kg);
- ρ is the substance density (kg / m³), determined from special tables. Each product has its own density.

Below are some interesting data compiled on the most frequent requests of housewives on the Internet:

- The first place in the ranking is the following question: 5 ml - how many teaspoons? The answer is simple: 1 tsp.
- The next question is the opposite of the first: 1 tsp - how many ml? Answer: 1 tsp. = 5 ml.
- 10 ml - how many teaspoons?2 tsp. or 1 d. l.
- 2.5 ml - how many teaspoons? This volume takes ½ tsp.
- 2 ml is how much in a teaspoon? This question had to think a little. But there is another unit for measuring the volume of liquid.
**-**drops. So, 2 mg is 40 drops or 2 g, or 0.4 tsp.

And another question that concerns the use of medicines: how many ml in a teaspoon of syrup? When we talk about volume determination, for example, in a teaspoon, you can be sure that it will be the same for almost any liquid. Another thing **- **weight, because it depends on the density of the substance. The higher the density, the heavier the substance. Therefore, with the same volume, different liquids can differ significantly in weight. So you can be sure that there will be exactly 5 ml of syrup in a teaspoon.

We hope that this information will be useful to you. I wish you success!
