From: liter
To: tablespoon (US)


Definition: A liter (symbol: L) is a unit of volume that is accepted for use with the International System of Units (SI) but is technically not an SI unit. One liter is equal to 1 cubic decimeter (dm3), 1,000 cubic centimeters (cm3), or 1/1,000 cubic meters (m3).

History/origin: There was a point from 1901 to 1964 when a liter was defined as the volume of one kilogram of pure water under the conditions of maximum density at atmospheric pressure. However, due to the mass-volume relationship of water being based on a number of factors that can be cumbersome to control (temperature, pressure, purity, isotopic uniformity), as well as the discovery that the prototype of the kilogram was slightly too large (making the liter equal to 1.000028 dm3 rather than 1 dm3), the definition of the liter was reverted to its previous, and current definition.

Current use: The liter is used to measure many liquid volumes as well as to label containers containing said liquids. It is also used to measure certain non-liquid volumes such as the size of car trunks, backpacks and climbing packs, computer cases, microwaves, refrigerators, and recycling bins, as well as for expressing fuel volumes and prices in most countries around the world.


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.
