Liquid Measure Volume Equivalents

1 teaspoon            = 1/3 tablespoon or 1/6 ounce

3 teaspoons           = 1 tablespoon or 1/3 ounce

2 tablespoons        = 1 fluid ounce

4 tablespoons        = 2 ounces or 1/4 cup

8 tablespoons        = 4 ounces or 1/2 cup

16 tablespoons      = 8 ounces or 1 cup

1 cup                     = 8 fluid ounces or ½ pint

FYI – American and British measuring units have always been a little different.  A British cup is 10 ounces, a pint is 20 ounces, a quart is 40 ounces and an Imperial gallon has 160 ounces.  This is why some of your formulae do not work quite right when the author is English – you will need to adjust the measurements accordingly.

Be careful of volume measurements versus liquid measurements.  One cup (16oz) volume measurement of Titanium White powder weighs 23 ounces (1 lb, 7 ounces).   You see the problem with SAE vs metric measurements.  Do not pack powders tightly
