If your going by my plastic tablespoon (Tb) then that would be accurate. I added approx. another 1/2 tablespoon to get to one ounce. Whereas the metal one measured 3 tablespoons at 1oz.

What did you use to measure 3.3 grams? That's only 0.116oz. How many (or how much of a) Tablespoon is that? I think my brain is about to freeze again, lol.

I have a one of those little scales. When I weighed it I used a tablespoon and divided by three (three teaspoons per one tablespoon).

3.5 tablespoons of corn starch - scale set to ounces

3.5 tablespoons of corn starch - scale set to grams

Spoons used

Mine too. Besides it's 5:38pm and dark so it's time for me to put the birds to bed and make dinner. If you have more to solve post it and I'll check it later tonight or in the morning.

Okay... think maybe we can do the Corid powder next! I'll put together some info on it.

-Kathy

Maybe I'm just tired and not computing well. But I ran across this chart and based on what you measured I don't know what to think.

http://www.exploratorium.edu/cooking/convert/measurements.html

You measured 3.5 Tablespoons and got 1oz = 28g (approx.) which is correct by dry weight mass. But this chart (if you scroll down to Dry Measure Equivalent section it shows that it 1oz = 28g = 2 Tablespoons (1/8 cup).

I think that chart is wrong, lol.

Here is the 0.012% mixing instructions for the Corid Powder.

Confirmed with the mfg that the 0.024% dose is 4.536 grams.
