How to convert ounces to grams?
So now we will show you how to use the knowledge from the previous part in practice. It will take us 3 steps:
- The first step – we will show you the basic formula to convert ounces to grams, without putting an exact value of a conversion factor.
- The second step – we will show you the formula with the inserted conversion factor in an exact form.
The third step – we will show you practical examples with the use of a formula in the next 2 parts of this article.
So let’s start!
The conversion formula for ounces to grams in a basic way looks like this:
The number of ounces * the conversion factor = the result in grams
And now see how it looks with the inserted exact value of the conversion rate:
The number of ounces * 28 grams = the result in grams
And that’s it. It is a ready-to-use formula to make the conversion of any number of ounces to grams. There is nothing else but to try it with examples, so let’s move on.
Ounces to grams conversion – fractions
In this part, we will focus on the values of an ounce smaller than 1. It means we will calculate fractions, like ½, ¼, or ⅛. So let’s make the calculations.
Firstly calculate how many grams in a half of an ounce. The equation will look as follows:
0.5 ounces * 28 grams = 14 grams
So it means that 0.5 ounces are equal to 14 grams exactly.
Another example. This time calculate how many grams in a fourth of an ounce. And the formula looks like this:
0.25 ounces * 28 grams = 7 grams
So now you see clearly that 0.25 ounces are equal to 7 grams.
And the last example in this part. Let’s get to know how many grams in an eighth of an ounce. The equation is down below:
0.125 ounces * 28 grams = 3.5 grams
So 0.125 ounces is equal to 3.5 grams. No more, no less.
Was it difficult to calculate? We are sure that the answer is “no”. So let’s make a few more examples, this time with bigger numbers.
Calculate ounces to grams – numbers bigger than 1
In the previous part we focused on the numbers smaller than 1, so this time we will focus on the numbers bigger than 1. Which ones are we going to calculate exactly? Here you will also find 3 examples – we are going to calculate 2, 4, and 6 ounces to grams.
So let’s start with the first example. How many grams in 2 ounces? The calculations look like this:
2 ounces * 28 grams = 56 grams
So 2 ounces are exactly 56 grams.
The second example now. Calculate how many grams in 4 ounces. The equation looks as follows:
4 ounces * 28 grams = 112 grams
And the last example. This time calculate how many grams in 6 ounces. In this case, the calculations look like this:
6 ounces * 28 grams = 168 grams
We are sure that this part was even easier than the previous one. The round numbers are easier to calculate than fractions, this is obvious.
As we promised, we prepared for you also a conversion chart for cooking with ready results. So let’s see it in the next part.
