Full Answer

Different ingredients can have different weights; therefore, the exact number of grams in a tablespoon depends on the weight of the ingredient. For example, a  teaspoon of sugar is about 4 grams. Teaspoons and tablespoons can be converted easily. Three teaspoons equals 1 tablespoon, which means that 1 tablespoon equals about 4 x 3 grams of sugar, or 12 grams.

To convert grams to tablespoons, it's necessary to know the density of the material being measured. The density of water is about 1 gram per milliliter, so 17 grams of water is equal to 17 milliliters. Seventeen milliliters of water equals 1 tablespoon and 1/2 teaspoon.
