Relation between mass, volume, and densityDefinition of fluid ounces and poundsConverting fluid oz to poundsCalculating pounds to fluid oz conversionUsing this fluid ounces to pounds conversion toolOther related toolsFAQs

Our fluid ounces to pounds conversion calculator will help you calculate how many pounds (lbs) a given volume in fluid ounces (fl oz) can weigh using the density of the material. This calculator can handle US fluid ounces and UK fluid ounces!

But isn't an ounce a unit of mass? What are fluid ounces? How can you convert volume into mass? Why is density essential to convert fl oz to pounds? If any of these questions plague you, make sure you go through our following article, where we discuss some fundamentals of this volume-to-mass conversion, including:

• Mass, volume, and density.
• Definition of fluid ounces and pounds as units.
• Converting fluid oz to pounds.
• Converting lbs to fl oz.

## Relation between mass, volume, and density

The density of an object is the ratio of the object's mass to its volume. It is given by:

$\rho = \frac{m}{V}$

Where:

• $\rho$ - Density of the object;
• $m$ - Mass of the object; and
• $V$ - Volume of the object.

The SI unit of density is kilograms per cubic meter $\rm{kg/m^3}$.

The above relation is helpful for this volume-to-mass conversion and vice versa - If we know an object's volume and density, we can determine its mass.

$V = \frac{m}{\rho}$

Similarly, if we know the object's mass and density, we can determine its volume.

$m = \rho \cdot V$

## Definition of fluid ounces and pounds

A fluid ounce (fl oz) is a unit of volume usually used to express the volume of liquids. The Imperial and US Customary systems have different definitions for this unit:

• An imperial fluid ounce (UK fl oz or imp fl oz) is defined as ¹⁄₂₀ of an imperial pint or ¹⁄₁₆₀ of an imperial gallon. It is precisely equal to 28.4130625 mL.

• A US fluid ounce (US fl oz) is defined as ¹⁄₁₆ of a US pint or ¹⁄₁₂₈ of a US gallon. It is precisely equal to 29.5735295625 mL.

An avoirdupois pound (lbs) is a unit of mass in the Imperial and US Customary system, precisely equal to 0.45359237 kg.

## Converting fluid oz to pounds

Now that you know these units, let's learn how to convert fluid oz to lbs:

1. Convert the density of the material from $\rm{kg/m^3}$ to $\text{lbs/fl oz}$:

1. Multiply the density with 2.204623, since $1 \text{ kg} = 2.204623 \text{ lbs}$.

2. For conversion into US fl oz, divide the value obtained in step 1 by 33814, since $1 \text{ m}^3 = 33814\text{ US fl oz}$.

3. For conversion in UK fl oz, divide the value obtained in step 1 by 35195, since $1 \text{ m}^3 = 35195\text{ UK fl oz}$.

2. Multiply density in $\text{lbs/fl oz}$ with the volume in US or UK fl oz to get the corresponding mass in pounds.

Let's understand fluid oz to pounds calculation with an example. Say you have $25 \text{ US fl oz}$ of water, whose density is $1000 \text{ kg/m}^3$. What would be its mass in pounds?

1. Convert the density into $\rm{lbs/US fl oz}$:

1. Multiply $1000 \text{ kg/m}^3$ with 2.204623 to get $2204.623 \text{ lbs/m}^3$.

2. Divide $2204.623 \text{ lbs/m}^3$ by 33814 to get $0.065198\text{ lbs/US fl oz}$.

2. Multiply $0.065198\text{ lbs/US fl oz}$ with $25 \text{ US fl oz}$ to get the mass in pounds as $1.62995 \approx 1.63 \text{ lbs}$.

Quickly verifying this answer with this fl oz to lbs calculator shows we got the correct answer!

## Calculating pounds to fluid oz conversion

Now that you've mastered fluid oz to lbs calculation, let's learn how to perform pounds to fluid ounces conversion:

1. Similar to fluid oz to pounds conversion, begin by converting the density of the material from $\rm{kg/m^3}$ to $\text{lbs/fl oz}$:

1. Multiply the density with 2.204623, since $1 \text{ kg} = 2.204623 \text{ lbs}$.

2. For conversion into US fl oz, divide the value obtained in step 1 by 33814, since $1 \text{ m}^3 = 33814\text{ US fl oz}$.

3. For conversion in UK fl oz, divide the value obtained in step 1 by 35195, since $1 \text{ m}^3 = 35195\text{ UK fl oz}$.

2. Divide mass in lbs by the density in $\text{lbs/fl oz}$ to obtain the volume in US or UK fl oz.

Test your understanding of this conversion: Convert $10 \text{ lbs}$ of water whose density is $1000 \text{ kg/m}^3$ into UK fl oz. You can verify your answer with this fl oz to pounds converter!
