Question: How many ounces in one pound of body weight?

Answer: 16

Solution:

Weight is nothing but It is the measure of the “force of gravity acting on a body”.

Formula:

W = mg

Where,

m = mass of the body

g = gravity force or acceleration due to gravity. The value of g is = 9.8 m/s^2

Coming back to solution –

We know that –

Weight is a force and its SI unit is – Newton

We also know that Ounce is also a unit of weight and

1 Ounce = 1/16 Pounds —————————— (Equation – 1)

therefore,

1 Pounds = 16 Ounces (Answer)

How to verify this answer – How many ounces in one pound of body weight?

Again we know that,

1 Pound = 0.453 Kgs ————————— (Equation – 2)

From equation (1)

1 Pound = 16 Ounce

On putting value from equation (2), we get

0.453 Kgs = 16 Ounce

therefore,

1 Ounce = 0.453Kgs/16

= 0.02831 Kgs or 28.31 Grams (The same can be matched with below table)

Table:

1 Pound = 0.453 Kgs
1 Kg = 2.204 Pounds
1 Ounce = 0.028 Kgs
1 Kg = 35.27 Ounce
