Q:

How many tablespoons is 75 grams?

A:

Using a conversion calculator, 75 grams equals 5.07 tablespoons rounded to two decimals. This measurement is not exact, as the conversion leads to large decimals. Grams measure the mass or weight of a substance. Tablespoons are a measurement of the volume or amount of a substance.

Tablespoons are a measurement that comes from the historical use of tablespoons for measuring the amounts of ingredients used for cooking. A tablespoon in the United States comes out to about 15 milliliters, but the actual tablespoon utensil can range from 7 to 14 milliliters. Accepted milliliter amounts vary from region to region as well, because the tablespoon is not a standardized unit of measurement.

Grams are a unit of measurement derived from the International System of Units (SI) base of kilograms used to measure the mass of any particular substance or object. They are commonly used in measuring non-liquids in cooking. This form of measurement is accurately described as 1/1000 of a kilogram.

Tablespoons became a common use of measurement in the 18th century, but kilogram became widely recognized in the 19th century. The gram and the kilogram tend to be more accurate at measuring exact amounts of substances due to the differing usages of tablespoons in other regions.

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.
