  • That would be half a pound of water but it doesn't apply to anything else. There's no set conversion from volume to weight because different things have different densities. Try, they have a conversion calculator for various common substances like baking ingredients. For example, a tbsp of flour is 0.3oz and a cup is 5oz. A half pound of flour would be about 26tbsps. A half pound of granite would be about 11tbsps, just to give an example of something more dense.

  • A half of a pound of what? A tablespoon of butter does not weigh the same as a tablespoon of flour....
