What is the number of drops in a teaspoon?

There are 60 metric drops in a 5ml teaspoon. You'll find many variants on this ranging from 50 - 120, but 60 is a good bet. Generally, drops are not a precise measurement.

There are several exact definitions of a "drop". Here are 3 of them: * the "metric" drop, 1/20 ml (50 μL), which equates to 60 to a 5ml teaspoon.

* the medical drop, 1/12 ml (83⅓ μL). * the Imperial drop, 1/36 of a fluid dram (1/288 of an Imperial fluid ounce or 1/1440 of a gill (approximately 99 μl).

Note: There are 360 drops in a U.S. fluid ounce.

From looking at original German recipes and their translations, "3 Tr" would mean "3 Tropfen" or "3 drops". Drops can vary in size.Some sites say a drop is about 1/96 of a teaspoon, so 3 drops would be 3/96 or 1/32 of a teaspoon. That would be 1/4 of a 1/8 tsp measure.Other sites say there are around 76 drops in a teaspoon. That would translate to 3 drops being about 1/25 tsp or about 1/3 of a 1/8 tsp measure.It would be pretty difficult to eye the difference between 1/32 and 1/25 of a teaspoon. I'm not so certain your taste buds would pick up the difference in a cookie or cake recipe. I'd probably get a dropper bottle to use for that recipe, but realize that even drops vary in volume.

1 teaspoon is 5 ml. So a millilitre is closer to 4 drops but still larger. I would estimate a single ml to be about 20 drops of water.

The answer depends on whether you are measuring the drops from a slow drip or the number of drops of water in an ocean!

Teaspoon is a volume measurement, and gram is a weight measurement. The number of grams in a teaspoon of anything depends on what it is that you are measuring with the teaspoon. For example, a teaspoon of mercury would weigh more grams than a teaspoon of water.

Depends on whether it's a metric drop, a medical drop, an imperial drop or a U.S. drop. If it's a U.S. drop, then 60 drops = 1 teaspoon.

A drop is defined as 1/60th of a teaspoon. So it would work out to 82.1486932 microliters.

No. 1.4 is a decimal. The number to the left of the decimal point is the whole number, meaning one. If there were a zero on the right side of the decimal point, then it would be 1 teaspoon. However, there is a 4 there. which is equal to 4/10. That is more than a whole teaspoon
