## Tablespoons: A Unit of Volume

Tablespoons are a unit of volume that are used to measure small amounts of liquids, such as water, milk, oil, vinegar, etc. They are also used to measure some dry ingredients, such as sugar, salt, flour, etc. They are different from teaspoons, which are a smaller unit of volume. Tablespoons are also different from fluid ounces, which are a larger unit of volume. Tablespoons are also different from barrel of oil equivalent (BOE), which is a unit of energy based on the approximate energy released by burning one barrel of crude oil.

## Definition of Tablespoons

A tablespoon is defined as 15 milliliters (ml) in the metric system of measurement. It is equivalent to 0.5 fluid ounces or 0.0625 cups in the US customary system. A tablespoon is also equal to 0.053 imperial cups or 0.0042 imperial gallons in the imperial system.

## History of Tablespoons

The origin of the term tablespoon as a unit of measure is uncertain, but it may have derived from the French word cuiller à soupe, which means a spoon for soup. Spoons have been used since ancient times to eat and serve various foods, especially liquids and soft solids. The size and shape of spoons varied depending on the type and quantity of the foods, the availability of materials, and the customs of different regions and countries.

The use of tablespoons as a unit of measure dates back to the medieval times, when the European system of measurement was established. The standard size of these spoons was about 15 ml, which was also the size of a scruple, a unit of measure for apothecaries and pharmacists. The tablespoon was convenient for measuring and dispensing small amounts of liquids and powders for medicinal purposes.

The use of tablespoons as a unit of measure continued until the 20th century, when the metric system of measurement was adopted in most countries. The tablespoon was gradually replaced by units such as milliliters, grams, etc. However, some countries and regions still use tablespoons for certain types of liquids and dry ingredients, especially in cooking and baking.

## How to Convert Tablespoons

To convert tablespoons to other units of volume, one can use the following formulas:

• To convert tablespoons to milliliters: multiply by 15
• To convert tablespoons to fluid ounces: multiply by 0.5
• To convert tablespoons to cups: multiply by 0.0625
• To convert tablespoons to gallons (US): multiply by 0.00390625
• To convert tablespoons to gallons (UK): multiply by 0.0042
• To convert tablespoons to BOE: divide by 23876

## Where Tablespoons are Used

Tablespoons are mainly used in cooking and baking in some countries and regions that still use the US customary system or the imperial system of measurement. They are often used for measuring and adding liquids such as water, milk, oil, vinegar, etc., and dry ingredients such as sugar, salt, flour, etc., to recipes.

In some countries that use the metric system of measurement, such as Canada and Australia, tablespoons are sometimes used as an informal or approximate unit of volume for certain types of liquids and dry ingredients. For example, in Canada, maple syrup is sometimes sold by the tablespoon, which is equivalent to about 15 ml or 0.015 liters.

In some countries that have their own traditional units of volume based on spoons or similar utensils, such as India and China, tablespoons are not commonly used or recognized. Instead, they use units such as chhatak (about 59 ml), chammach (about 10 ml), or shao (about 15 ml).

## Example Conversions of Tablespoons to Other Units

Here are some examples of converting tablespoons to other units of volume:

• 1 tablespoon = 15 milliliters
• 2 tablespoons = 1 fluid ounce
• 3 tablespoons = 0.1875 cups
• 4 tablespoons = 0.015625 gallons (US)
• 5 tablespoons = 0.021 gallons (UK)
• 6 tablespoons = 0.000252 BOE
• 7 tablespoons = 0.000294 BOE
US tablespoon can be abbreviated as T, tb, tbs, tbsp, tblsp, or tblspn.

## Definition of the Microliter

A microliter (symbol μl or μL) is a unit of volume that corresponds to one millionth of a liter (0.000001 liter) or one cubic millimeter (0.001 milliliter). It is a unit of volume in the metric system, which is based on the meter as the base unit of length.

One microliter is equal to 0.000000001 cubic meters, 0.00006102374 cubic inches, or 0.000000264172 gallons.

## History of the Microliter

The microliter is derived from the liter, which is a unit of volume that was introduced in France in 1795 as part of the metric system. The liter was defined as one cubic decimeter (0.1 meter) in length, width, and height. The liter was later redefined as the volume of one kilogram of pure water at its maximum density and standard atmospheric pressure. The current definition of the liter, adopted in 1964, is based on the cubic meter, which is defined as the volume of a cube with sides of one meter in length.

The microliter was first used as a unit of volume for measuring very small amounts of liquids and gases, such as medicine, perfume, ink, and blood. The microliter was also used for measuring some solids, such as sugar, salt, and flour. The microliter was adopted as a standard unit of measure in many countries that use the metric system, such as France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Sweden.

## How to Convert Microliters

To convert microliters to other units of volume, you need to multiply or divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:

• To convert microliters to cubic meters, multiply by 0.000000001.
• Example: 2 μl × 0.000000001 = 0.000000002 m3
• To convert microliters to cubic inches, multiply by 0.00006102374.
• Example: 2 μl × 0.00006102374 = 0.00012204748 in3
• To convert microliters to milliliters or liters, multiply by 0.001 or divide by 1000000 respectively.
• Example: 2 μl × 0.001 = 0.002 mL or 2 μl ÷ 1000000 = 0.000002 L
• To convert microliters to gallons (US liquid), multiply by 0.000000264172.
• Example: 2 μl × 0.000000264172 = 0.000000528344 gal
• To convert microliters to bushels (US), multiply by 0.00000002837825.
• Example: 2 μl × 0.00000002837825 = 0.0000000567565 bu
• To convert microliters to barrels (oil), multiply by 0.00000000628981.
• Example: 2 μl × 0.00000000628981 = 0.00000001257962 bbl

To convert other units of volume to microliters, you need to divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:

• To convert cubic meters to microliters, divide by 0.000000001.
• Example: 0.000000002 m3 ÷ 0.000000001 = 2 μl
• To convert cubic inches to microliters, divide by 0.00006102374.
• Example: 0.00012204748 in3 ÷ 0.00006102374 = 2 μl
• To convert milliliters or liters to microliters, divide by 0.001 or multiply by 1000000 respectively.
• Example: 0.002 mL ÷ 0.001 = 2 μl or 0.000002 L × 1000000 = 2 μl
• To convert gallons (US liquid) to microliters, divide by 0.000000264172.
• Example: 0.000000528344 gal ÷ 0.000000264172 = 2 μl
• To convert bushels (US) to microliters, divide by 0.00000002837825.
