Tablespoons of lead, or tablespoons of feathers? Knowing the weight of what is in the tablespoon is the only way to tell.

The volume of a tablespoon is just about 15 ml (14.79 ml to be precise.) So, if you are refering to water, there would be about 15 grams per tablespoon, or about 120 grams for eight tablespoons (118.32 g, if you want precise,) because 1 ml of water weighs 1 gram.

To take things to extremes, If you are talking about lead, lead weighs 11.3 grams per ml, so you'd have 90.4 grams in eight tablespoons.

The factor of how much something weighs per unit volume is known as the specific gravity, and is usually measured in grams per cubic centimeter (which is equivalent to grams per ml.)

A tablespoon measure volume. Grams are a measurement of weight, or more properly, mass.

The only way to tell how many grams a tablespoon holds is to know what it is holding.

As I stated in the original post, a tablespoon of lead have a mass of 11.3 grams, whereas a tablespoon of water will have a mass of 1 gram.

The USDA nutritional database,
http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/
is a good place to search for food densities.

It only gives yellow, prepared mustard, not dijon, but it gives 1 cup (16 Tablespoons) = 250 grams. so 100 g x 16 T/250 g = 6.4 T. 6Tabledpoons + 1 teaspoon would be very close.
