**16 tablespoons**

1 tablespoon is equal to 1/2 ounce. 1 cup is equal to 8 ounces so the answer is 16 tablespoons.

There 2 Tbsp = 1 fl. oz. 1 cup = 8 fl. oz.

Just mulitply amount of fl.oz. by two, and you will find the number of tablespoons. So, 8 x 2 = 16 tablespoons

16.5

i have just weighed 1 real fluid tablespoon and it came to 5/8th of an ounce, for 1/2 a cup of liquid it took 6 tablespoons to fill to brim.

therefore 12 tablespoons is 1 cup.

1 cup is 250 gm. -So that is 16.6 tablespoons of any liquid.
