Q:

Full Answer

For example, 1 teaspoon of granulated sugar weighs about 4.67 grams, but 1 teaspoon of confectioner's sugar, which is used to make icing, weighs around 3.67 grams. This is because granulated sugar is denser, meaning it weighs more despite being in the same-sized container. Even then, the number is approximate, because the precise density is still unknown.
