The conversions help to show the calculation between them. Using the same formula, you can convert any amount given in cups into teaspoons.
For example, if you want to calculate how many teaspoons 1.5 cups of an ingredient hold, you only have to multiply that number by 48.
1.5 cups = 1.5 * 48 teaspoons = 72 teaspoons
The equation works the other way around, too. For example, if you wanted to calculate how many cups there are in 36 cups, you would need to divide that number by 48.
36 teaspoons = 36/48 cups = ¾ cups
If you compare a teaspoon with a tablespoon, you will notice that 1 tablespoon is equivalent to 3 teaspoons. 1 cup is equivalent to 16 tablespoons. You can calculate the number of teaspoons in a cup with this equation too.
The teaspoon and the cup both need to be of standard size. There are different sizes of cups available. This equation is only applicable to standard us teaspoon and standard us cup sizes.
This conversion is beneficial in a lot of situations. You can use either of the units in any case you’re missing another one. If you don’t have a cup to measure something, you can use a teaspoon to measure just as many ingredients as is equivalent to a cup.
