### Fluid ounce

Definition: A fluid ounce (symbol: fl oz) is a unit of volume in the imperial and United States customary systems of measurement. The US fluid ounce is 1/16 of a US fluid pint, and 1/128 of a US liquid gallon, which is equal to 29.57 mL. The imperial fluid ounce is 1/20 of an imperial pint, and 1/160 of an imperial gallon, which is equal to 28.4 mL.

History/origin: The fluid ounce was originally based on the volume occupied by one ounce (weight) of a given liquid such as wine or water, thus varying based on the system being used. In 1824, the imperial gallon was defined as the volume of ten pounds of water at a temperature of 16.7°C. The imperial gallon's definition was later changed to be equal to 4.54609 liters, making the imperial fluid ounce equal to exactly 28.4130625 mL.

The United States fluid ounce was initially based on the wine gallon used in England prior to 1824. After the adoption of the international inch in 1959, the US fluid ounce became equal to exactly 29.5735295625 mL.

Current use: As the name indicates, the fluid ounce is typically used as a measurement of liquid volume. It is mostly used in the United States and the United Kingdom, as one of the many measurements of volume used.

### Tablespoon

Definition: A tablespoon (symbol: Tbsp) is a unit of volume based on an item of cutlery. The United States customary tablespoon is equal to approximately 14.8 mL, a metric tablespoon is exactly equal to 15 mL, and an Australian tablespoon is equal to 20 mL. In nutrition labeling in both the US and the UK, a tablespoon is defined as 15 mL.

History/origin: The use of the tablespoon as a measurement of volume began in the 18th century when it became the unofficial unit of the Apothecaries' system of measures. It was equal to 4 drams, or ½ of a fluid ounce. These relationships still hold in the US customary system of measurement.

Current use: The table spoon as a unit of volume is used in cooking in certain countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
