I have rephrased your question so it doesn't actually ask for a Psak.

comment How much salt should I put in the water for salt water at the Seder?
This article gives the concentration of NaCl (common salt) in tears as 6.6g/L. Shabes.net recommends one teaspoon per glass of water מכינים על השולחן צלוחית ובה מי מלח לטיבול הירקות: שמים כפית מלח אחת לכוס מים. a teaspooon is 5mL. Salt weighs 2.2g/mL. A glass is approximately 200 mL. So we have 11g/200mL or 55g/L, over 8 times the concentration of salt in tears.
