Conversion of units is a very common calculation. Have you ever thought about individual units? What is an ounce? Of course, it is a unit but what is it used for? An ounce is known mostly as a unit of weight. Not everyone knows that it is also a unit of mass and volume. Ounce is used mostly in systems of measurements which are derived from Britain.
It is very important to know that there is more than one kind of ounce. We distinguish four types of this unit. The most common is avoirdupois ounce. Primarily it is used in the United States. In this unit they measured for instance food portions, packaged food or areal density of paper. Avoirdupois ounce = 28.3495231 grams, approximately 28.3 grams. Besides, we have three more types of ounce. The troy ounce is equal 31.1034768 grams. This unit is used to measure the mass of precious metal such as gold, silver, platinum, rhodium or palladium, especially under the form of bullion coins. Metal bars are measured also in kilograms and grams. The ounce-force is, according to the dictionary, “a unit of force equal to the weight of a mass of one ounce, especially under standard gravity; one-sixteenth of a pound-force.” The ounce-force is equal 0.2780139 newtons. The last one is fluid ounce which is a measure of volume. In abbreviated form it is written as fl oz, fl. oz. or oz. fl. It is equal 28.4 ml in the imperial system but, on the other hand, in the US system it is equal 29.6 ml.
Let’s have a look at word “ounce”. Where does this word come from? Ounce derives from Latin. Originally this word was uncia and meant one-twelfth (1/12) of the Roman pound. Interestingly, from the same Latin word is borrowed English word inch. An abbreviation for ounce is oz. It came later from Italian word onza.
It is worth mentioning that ounce in history, in different countries, did not have the same standards. Some of these were similar but not all. International avoirdupois ounce is equal 28.349523125 grams. For instance, Spanish ounce was equal 28.75 grams and French ounce was equal 30.59 grams. In turn, Chinese metric ounce which was equal 50 grams or Dutch metric ounce which was equal 100 grams. These two units are significantly different from avoirdupois ounce.
In 1959, United States and countries of the Commonwealth of Nation signed the international yard and pound agreement. In 2000, ounce was ceased to be a legal unit of measure in the United Kingdom but it is still in use, for example to measure portion sizes in restaurants. In United States ounce is still a standard unit which is used in everyday life.
It should be mention about avoirdupois system in general. What is it? It is a measurement system of weights. In this system pounds and ounces are used as base units. Avoirdupois system was used by first time in 13th century. It was updated only in 1959 when International Avoirdupois was created. Nowadays, ounce is 1/16 of pound. In this system are also another units like grain which is equal 1/700 pound or quarter which is equal 25 pounds.
