It is not. A tablespoon is equivalent to 0.5 liquid ounces so there are 2 tablespoons in 1 ounce. There are two different ounces, ounces of weight/mass and ounces of volume (fluid). This can change when you are using the tablespoon to measure a non-liquid such as flour or sugar since the weight of dry items is not the same as their volume. An ounce of volume is called a "fluid ounce." A tablespoon measures volume not weight. In order to convert tablespoons or teaspoons to ounces or back, You need to know what is being measured. A spoon of lettuce will weigh different than a spoon of gold in solid ounces.

no it equals 2 tbsp. In US measure 32 fluid ounces are equal to one quart. One ounce is 0.03 quart or as thirty-two (32) ounces equals 1 quart, so there is 1/32 of a quart in an ounce. But you need to know that 1 Imperial quart = 40 Imperial fluid ounces. Also this relates only to fluid ounces. There are two different kinds of ounces, ounces of weight/mass and ounces of volume (fluid). This can change when you are using the ounces to measure a non-liquid such as flour or sugar since the weight of dry items is not the same as their volume. An ounce of volume is called a "fluid ounce." A quart measures volume not weight. In order to convert quarts to solid (weight)ounces or back, You need to know what is being measured.
