Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Well, is it heavier or lighter than water?

A teaspoon of water is almost exactly 5 mL. Because it has a density of 1 g/mL, it would also weigh 5 g. So for water, or something that weighs about the same, it would be more than 1/8 but less than 1/4 teaspoon.

If it is some kind of moist cream, it might be about the same weight as water, but you really need to know its density to convert between mass and volume, regardless of what units you use.
