In our day to day lives, we do need to occasionally convert ounces to kilograms. True, scientists and chemists do this conversion for higher end professional jobs. But then again, even housewives have to undergo such conversions when they cook or shop for groceries.
Firstly, it is easy to convert ounces into kilogram. The equation is simple and straight.
1 oz. = 0.02835 kg
So when someone asks you about how many kilograms are there in 3 oz, you can just multiply the 0.02835 factor with 3. Thus your equation will look like –
3 oz. x 0.02835 = 0.08505 5670 kg
If you are able to cleverly use this method, it will be easier to convert pounds into kilograms or pounds into milligrams or yards into centimeters or gallons into liters or Kilogram to Slug all units to all other unit.
But still, you got to ensure that the units you measure belong to the same kind of quantity (e.g. length, mass, or volume, density and force or even electric charge). Changing pounds into meters could mean changing mass into length, and this type of a problem could be nonsensical.
So we have seen how to convert ounces to kilograms, right? The next task in hand would be to learn how to change kilograms into ounces. Just make sure that you understand that kilogram happens to be heavier compared to an ounce. In fact, it is just a bit heavier than 35 times an ounce. And here is your formula –
1 kilogram = 35.273961 Ounces
This means, if you have got 2 kilograms to convert into ounces, just take the trouble of multiplying the 2 kg by 35.2739619. So, here is how the formula stands-
2 kg x 35.273961 = 70.547922 ounces
If you have noticed, this is just all about doing the reverse of what we did a while ago to convert ounces to kilograms. Fortunately, this kg to oz things as well can be reversed to the oz to kg conversion. The whole thing is fun and much simpler than you think.
Say, you have got an ounce and are willing to find out the number of equivalent kilograms. This means, all you need to do is divide the total ounces by the 35.2739619 factor. And naturally, when 1 ounce gets divided by this 35.2739619, you get 028349523 kilograms.
So we are back where we started from. If you just multiply the total ounces by 0.028349523 you will be able to convert ounces to kilograms!
