Find a calculator and weigh it.
I often use a little less than an ounce per gallon. Or about 4.5 ounces of plain table sugar in 5 gallons.

I just measured one level tablespoon of table sugar at pretty much exactly 0.5 oz.
Ten level tablespoons came out at 5.01 ounces so two level tablespoons in one gallon is pretty much spot on a reasonable amount to prime. Maybe a little light if trying to carb to style, but certainly enough to get a normal level of carbonation.
