Do You Know: How many Tablespoons are in a Cup?
Today let us learn how many tablespoons are there in a cup. There is a conversion formula which is generally used for the conversion of tablespoon in a cup. The relationship between this conversion is as follows:-
1 Cup = 16 Tablespoons (USA)

Cup is a liquid capacity or dry capacity measuring unit. In common language it used to measure volume of anything. It is generally used a measuring unit in the kitchen or in day to day things like milk, oil sugar etc. It is symbolically represented by “c”.
Note:- I have written two conversions because there is a slight difference between USA measuring system and the one used in UK. In regular day to day life, the one used in USA is common and considered as accurate.
Tablespoon is another measuring unit used in kitchen to measure quantity in cooking recipes. One tablespoon is approximately equal to 0.5 of fluid ounces. Symbolically, it is represented by “tbsp.” or “tbs”.
