How to calculate ounces to kg

To understand how ounce to kg conversion works, let us first discuss how they are related. Ounce, an imperial unit, has a relatively straightforward relationship with other weight imperial units such as pounds. One pound is actually equal to 16 ounces. On the other hand, one pound is approximately 0.45359237 kilograms (an SI unit).

Since we now know that there are around 0.45359237 kilograms per pound and 16 ounces per pound, we can multiply any weight in ounces (say we denote as wozw_\text{oz}) by 0.45359237 kg/lb0.45359237\ \text{kg}/\text{lb} and divide it by 16 oz/lb16\ \text{oz}/\text{lb} to find the weight in kilograms (which we can denote as wkgw_\text{kg}).

wkg=woz×0.45359237 kglb16 ozlb=woz×0.028349523 kgoz\begin{align*} w_\text{kg} &= w_\text{oz}\times \frac{0.45359237\ \tfrac{\text{kg}}{\text{lb}}}{16\ \tfrac{\text{oz}}{\rm lb}}\\\\ &= w_\text{oz}\times 0.028349523\ \tfrac{\text{kg}}{\text{oz}} \end{align*}

Now that we know how to convert ounces to kg, how about we discuss how to convert oz to kg using our tool? 🙂
