Please provide values below to convert tablespoon (US) to cubic centimeter [cm^3], or vice versa.

 From: tablespoon (US) To: cubic centimeter

### 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.

### Cubic centimeter

Definition: The cubic centimeter (symbol: cm3) is an SI derived unit of volume based on the cubic meter. It is the volume of a cube with measurements 1 cm × 1 cm × 1 cm, and is equal to 1/1,000,000 of a cubic meter, 1/1,000 of a liter, or 1 milliliter. The abbreviations of cc and ccm are also sometimes used to denote a cubic centimeter, but their use is deprecated in the International System of Units (SI).

History/origin: The cubic centimeter was derived from the cubic meter, using an SI prefix, in this case "centi," to denote a submultiple of the base unit.

Current use: The cubic centimeter is used in many scientific disciplines, often in the form of milliliters (symbol: mL). Although the cubic centimeter is based on the SI unit of volume, the mL (and its multiples) are more commonly used as a measurement of volume than the cubic centimeter. The United States medical and automotive fields are an exception to this, and the cubic centimeter is still widely used in these fields. In contrast, the United Kingdom uses cubic centimeters in the medical, but not the automotive field.
