Convert teaspoon (US) to milliliter

What is a teaspoon?

An average teaspoon may contain up to 5 milliliters of some liquid. As a cutlery, it is utilized for stirring sugar in tea and eating desserts.

In addition, in medicine and cooking, a teaspoon is used for measuring mass and volume but not with a high precision level. In this case, it is widely accepted that it contains approximately 5 ml volume of any given liquid. Still, some countries have their own designations, namely:

  • 1 teaspoon corresponds to 4.93 ml in the US;
  • an English teaspoon means 3.55 ml.

As for the bulk products, there are special tables that contain the data on the quantities in grams that correspond to a teaspoon.

Therefore, when you see this unit in a recipe, it is recommended to check which type of teaspoon was meant and what is the amount of a liquid or bulk product that should be taken.

What is a milliliter?

If you need to measure a tiny amount of some liquid, you can do it using milliliters. These units do not belong to the standard systematic system but are still widely used in European and other countries. Such areas of life as medicine firmly stick to them and prefer them over all other options.

What does a milliliter mean? It corresponds to a 1/1000 part of a liter. The common designation for this option is mL.

If you want to imagine 1 mL, you have to think about a small cube with dimensions equal to 1 cm. Thus, it is the same as 1 cm3 that is a derivative of a systematic unit for volume measurement – a cubic meter.

In addition to their direct purpose, milliliters are also utilized for other derived physical units. For instance, density can be evaluated in g/ml3. Therefore, this option is quite common and popular.
