“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.

Oz refers to ounces when you're measuring.

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.
