What is the ratio for using tapioca rather than flour?
If you are making a sauce or using it in a pie recipe just use whatever the recipe says. If it says 1 tablespoon flour - use one tablespoon tapioca. If you are making something that says 1/4 cup flour use 4 tablespoons tapioca. You can ask again and tell us what kind of recipe - we might have different measurements for you.

How many ounces of white flour are in a tablespoon?
How many pounds is there in 8 tablespoons?
You cannot convert tablespoons to pounds, since you don't know the weight of what is IN the tablespoon. For example, a tablespoon of sugar will weigh more than a tablespoon of flour. If you meant "How many tablespoons are in a pound?", as in measuring butter, then it would be 32 tablespoons in one pound of butter. Example: 1 stick butter = 1/2 cup = 8 tablespoons 2 sticks butter = 1 cup = 16 tablespoons 3 sticks butter = 1 1/2 cup = 24 tablespoons 4 sticks butter = 2 cups = 32 tablespoons

What is the difference between a heaping tablespoon and a level tablespoon?
A level tablespoon is just that, level. For example, if a recipe calls for a level tablespoon of flour, you dip the measuring spoon into the flour, then 'level it off' with a knife, so that the flour goes to the top of the measuring spoon, but not above. For a heaping tablespoon, dip the measuring spoon into the flour, but don't level it off. Leave it heaping full, with the flour piled high. But, whether the recipe calls for a tablespoon, teaspoon, etc.. always use a standard measuring spoon, not one used for eating.
