“Oz” is an abbreviation for ounce. Ounce is a unit of weight (definitely NOT volume) and there are 16 of them in a pound.
Don't confuse ounces with fluid ounces (fl oz). Fluid ounces measure volume and are used to measure liquids. The two are not interchangeable as the weight of a liquid varies according to the density of the liquid.
Added, I see I have a thumbs down, I guess from one of the ignoramuses who doesn't know what an ounce is. It's a measurement of WEIGHT.

ounce. Usually means the liquid ounce, a volume. 8 ounces ot a cup, 16 ounces to a pint. 2 tablespoons or 6 teaspoons. In the US measurement system. The imperial system is a bit different.
Measuring cups usually show lines to mark ounces.
It can also refer to a weight, 1/16 of a pound.

OZ is a weight .. it means OUNCE.
There are 16 Ounces in 1 Pound .... 16 oz = 1 lb
Ounces (oz) and Pounds (lb) are IMPERIAL measurements of weight
The METRIC measurements are Grams (g) and Kilograms (kg)
.. and 1 kg is the same as 2.2 lbs.
