I have a baking recipe that calls for 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract, but I only have a 1 tsp measuring spoon available, since the dishwasher is running. The measuring spoon is very nearly a perfect hemisphere.
My question is, to what depth (as a percentage of hemisphere radius) must I fill my teaspoon with vanilla such that it contains precisely 1/2 tsp of vanilla? Due to the shape, I obviously have to fill it more than halfway, but how much more?
(I nearly posted this in the Cooking forum, but I have a feeling the answer will involve more math knowledge than baking knowledge.)
