One level U.S. teaspoonful of granulated evaporated salt contains approximately 6,200 mg sodium chloride, or approximately 2,400 mg sodium. The density of granulated evaporated salt varies depending on crystal size, structure, gradation, and degree of compaction. The reported range of densities is 1,200-1,300 g/L. Michaels (1991)[i] uses 1,300-1,315 g/L for Hygrade and Fine salt from Sifto's Goderich evap plant. Niman (1979)[ii], and Bandy (1989)[iii] use 1,250 g/L for granulated evaporated salt (loose bulk density = 800 cc/1,000 g). Niman (1979) gives the density of Alberger as 624 - 750 g/L depending on gradation. Akzo Salt Inc. (1992)[iv] gives the density of General Purpose granulated evaporated salt as 77 lbs/ft3 (1,233 g/L), and of Granulated Iodized as 75 lb/ft3 (1,201 g/L). Akzo Salt Inc. gives densities for Alberger Natural Flake Salt as 39-60 lb/ft3 (625-960 g/L), and Tru-Flake Compacted Flake Salt as 59-70 lb/ft3 (945-1,121 g/L) depending on gradation. The coarse products are generally of lower density. Assuming evaporated granulated salt with a density of 1,250 g/L and 1 U.S. teaspoon = 4/93 mL (1 metric teaspoon = 5.0 mL): Salt (NaCl): 1,250 g/L = 1,250 mg/mL x 4.93 mL/U.S. tsp. = 6,162 mg/U.S. tsp.

Sodium: 6,162 mg/U.S. tsp. x 0.39337% Na = 2,424 mg/U.S. tsp. A simple summary is that about six grams of salt makes a level teaspoonful and just under 2.4 grams is sodium. This is exactly correct for salt with a density of 1,217 g/L. Based on a salt density of 1,250 g/L, one level teaspoon contains approximately 6,200 mg NaCl and approximately 2,400 mg sodium.

How many milligrams of chloride are in one teaspoon of salt?

Although this assumes much, we will use the typical sodium chloride as our salt. A teaspoon is 5mL; NaCl has a density of 2.16g/mL. This means that there are 10.8g in one teaspoon. Since only 35.5/58.4 of the mass is chlorine, there is 6.57g of chlorine in the teaspoon which equals 6570mg.

How many milligrams of salt are there in one teaspoon?

Using a density of 1.2 g/cc for standard table salt, since a teaspoon will hold 4.93 cc, one teaspoon contains 1.2 x 4.93 = 5.916 grams of salt, or 5,916 mg of salt per teaspoon. Note that the density of pure sodium chloride is higher (2.16 g/cc), but in the real world table salt comes in small crystals with air in between the crystals, so the weight per teaspoon is less.However, the sodium content is different. The atomic weight of sodium is 23, and the atomic weight of table salt (sodium chloride, or NaCl) is 58.4, so the sodium content of a teaspoon of salt is (23/58.4) x 5,916 = 2,330 mg per teaspoon.1 teaspoon is 5gm. It is also 5,000 mg.

How much does one teaspoon from two teaspoon of salt affect the freeze point of tap water?

First of all, every teaspoon of salt will affect the freezing point exactly the same, as long as it dissolves, so the second teaspoon will affect it as much as the first. Secondly, it depends on how much water you use to dissolve the salt. The reason is that the freezing point depends on the concentration of the salt water. A very simplifed way to figure this out is to divide 0.001 by the number of cups of water you are using. This is a close estimate for how much one teaspoon of salt will decrease the freezing point. You can see that it takes a lot of salt to make a big change.
