*URGENT* How to convert grams to mL

Postby bethyy » Tue Feb 19, 2019 2:56 pm

I am doing a project "Measuring taste threshold" and I need to measure out 10 grams of sugar and salt but I do not have time to order a gram balance, is there any way to convert them to teaspoons or ML? :? :o

This is information that you could easily find using Google. All I did was type in "what volume of sugar is 10 grams" and I got the answer:

2.4 teaspoons

https://www.calculateme.com/recipe/10-grams-of-sugar

This measurement will not be very accurate because you will have to guess on how much 0.4 tsp is, but it will be close enough for your experiment.

Any more questions?

I know you said "grams to ml" but I thought it would be easier to use a teaspoon since every kitchen has one of those.

If you really need to know the volume in ml that is equivalent to 10 g of granulated sugar, you can Google that also.
https://www.traditionaloven.com/culinar ... er-ml.html

It is 1.18 ml

However, the volume to weight relationship depends on how fine the sugar is. These calculations are for ordinary granulated table sugar, but if you used powdered or confectioner's sugar, the volume for 10 g would be less because the powdered sugar packs together more closely.
