The **grams to ounces converter** does exactly what it says on the tin: it converts grams to ounces. However, it also functions as an **ounces to grams converter**, allowing you to convert ounces to grams in the other direction.

## Mass versus weight

The terms ‘mass’ and ‘weight’ are frequently used interchangeably, but they have very different meanings. Your mass remains constant regardless of where you are in the **universe**; your weight, on the other hand, **varies**. Mass is measured in **kilograms**; however, while we often refer to weight in kilograms, it should be measured in newtons, which are units of force.

The tendency of an item to resist altering its state of motion, known as **inertia**, is measured by mass. A puck on an air hockey table, for example, will stay still or move in a straight path if left to its own devices. Unless a force happens on the puck, such as **friction **or a **collision **with a wall, it will continue indefinitely to slide in the same direction. The mass of anything is a measurement of how much force it will take to change its course.

**Weight**, on the other hand, is a measurement of the downward **force **exerted on an object by gravity. The gravitational force rises with the mass of the object: the more inertia it has, the more gravity **pulls**. The force of gravity on **Earth’s **surface is around 9.8 newtons per kilogram. We typically use the terms ‘mass’ and ‘weight’ interchangeably since we are used to dealing with situations on the surface of the Earth.

## How to measure mass and weight?

The term “weight” refers to how hefty something is. The weight is expressed in **customary units**. The quantity of material in a thing determines its mass. The mass is expressed in **metric units**. When you’re on the surface of the Earth, the distinction doesn’t matter for everyday use. However, if you weigh something on another planet, it will have the same mass as it does on Earth, but its weight will be different. (Weight is determined by gravity, yet gravity on other worlds is different! This is why when you’re floating in space, you’re weightless. However, you still have mass.)

Weight is a measure of the size of the gravitational attraction on an item, whereas mass is a measure of how much matter is in the thing.

## Units of mass

When stated in unit** J**, the kilogram (**kg**) is defined as the fixed numerical value of the Planck constant. For historical reasons, the kilogram (kg) is the only one whose name and symbol have a **prefix**. For example, the SI prefix for 1000 or 103 is “kilo.” Prefix names and symbols are attached to the unit name “gram,” and prefix symbols are attached to the unit symbol “g” to create names and symbols for decimal multiples and submultiples of the unit of mass.

## How to convert grams to ounces?

Both grams and ounces are weight **measurement units**. The weight in ounces is calculated by **multiplying **the grams by **0.035274**. Multiply the weight by the conversion ratio to convert a gram measurement to an ounce measurement. Because one gram equals **0.035274** ounces, you may convert using this easy formula:

*ounces = grams × 0.035274*

A gram is the mass/weight of one cubic **centimeter **of water and is roughly equivalent to **1/1,000** of a kilogram. One ounce is a mass/weight unit that equals **1/16** of a pound. The troy ounce, which is equal to **1/12** of a troy pound, should not be confused with the common ounce.

You must divide the quantity of grams by 28.34952 to convert grams to ounces.

* ounces = grams / 28.34952*

You must multiply the amount of ounces by 28.34952 in order to convert ounces to grams.

*grams = ounces x 28.34952*
