That depends on the substance.  Every substance will have a different weight to volume conversion.

If you let me know what the substance is I may be of help.  I have been collecting data on many cooking substances to add to the cooking conversion page.

Ground nutmeg has a density of 0.4733 grams/milliliter

That makes it about 7 grams/tablespoon or 2 grams/teaspoon

10 grams would be 5 teaspoons.

Similar question, different substances.  
160 gms of flour
80 gms of sugar

Just to make it interesting, since I'm a writer and we love to make things interesting, I met a wonderful German woman in the supermarket carefully selecting prune plums. I mentioned that someone else in a supermarket a long time ago quickly told me a recipe but I hadn't written it down.  She was willing to take the time to give me her recipe for a prune tart. On a day when other people in my life were giving me a hard time, this was so meaningful. Though she knew most of the ingredients by teaspoon, these were two she only new "in German!" :)
