Gross numeric concepts, my default setting, only go so far in calculating variables so I had to look it up. What is the volume of one drop of liquid? According to Yahoo Answers*, the following calculations are generally accepted responses.
Best Answer*: It is generally accepted that 20 drops will equal 1 milliliter. So one drop will be 0.05 ml.
Another: For water, or a liquid similar in viscosity to water, and a standard chemical dropper, 20 drops = ~1 ml.
And: There are about 16 drops of water per milliliter or 80 drops per teaspoon.
Several answers dealt with specific gravity and viscosity of various liquids.
My personal favorite answer was the one at the bottom of the page: half as much as two drops.
