### What Is An Ounce?

I want to begin the discussion by making you understand the terms that make up our topic of conversation. The word OUNCE is derived from the Roman word “Uncia.” An uncia is the one-twelfth of a Roman copper bar. It was traditionally used as a tool to measure the length of an inch.

An ounce, usually abbreviated as oz, is a unit of measurement used in countries where the imperial system for measurement of weight and mass is used. An ounce is used to measure dry weight primarily.

Other types of ounces, such as tro ounces, are used to measure precious metals like gold, silver, platinum, etc. There is also the fluid ounce, which is used to measure volume. For the sake of this article, however, we will stick to the traditional ounce, used to measure dry ingredients like flour, salt, sugar, and so on.

However, a modern-day ounce originates in Britain usually one-sixteenth of a pound. The big question now is: How many grams are in an ounce? Find out as you continue reading.

## What Is A Gram?

Before we move on to see the answer to our question of discussion, let us also get the meaning of a gram. A gram, originating in France during the French Revolution, is a metric system used for measurement. It was said that one gram is the weight of one cubic centimeter of water. It is the metric unit of a mass equal to 1/1000 of a kilogram. That is, a kilo is = 1000 grams.

These two units of measurement are necessary because we live in a world described as a global village, and the inter-relationship between people and systems of other countries cannot be avoided. Many international recipes use grams to specify the measurements of ingredients. Hence the need to know how to convert them, as shown in the next paragraph.

## How Many Grams Are In An Ounce?

**There are 28 grams in one ounce**. Let that sink into your memory so that even if you find yourself in a situation where you cannot automatically use the calculation method explained below, you will bear in mind that 28 grams make an ounce.

Here is the mathematical representation of a dry ounce-to-gram measurement.

1 ounce = 28.34 grams

Or

1 oz = 28.349523125g.

So, irrespective of what you want to measure except precious metals like gold, this is the correct answer for the number of grams in an ounce.

### How To Convert Ounce To Grams.

As mentioned earlier, it is straightforward to convert to either of the units of measurement. It only requires basic knowledge of mathematics, and in a split second, you are done. To convert ounce (oz) to grams (g), multiply the number of ounces by the unit of one gram, which is 28.3495 or 28. Where 28.349523125 is the factor for conversion. I will give you a few examples below.

Bear in mind that our formula remains

g = oz x 28.349523125

**Example: How Many Grams Are In 4 Ounces?**

Given that one ounce is equal to **28.349523125,**

Therefore, the number of grams in 4 ounces is

4 oz x 28.349523125 = 113.3980925 or simply put 113.4 grams.
