Question: How many ounces in one pound of body weight?
Weight is nothing but It is the measure of the “force of gravity acting on a body”.
W = mg
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)
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
1 Ounce = 0.453Kgs/16
= 0.02831 Kgs or 28.31 Grams (The same can be matched with below table)
