• To convert grains to avoirdupois ounces, divide by 437.5. For example, 10 gr = 10 / 437.5 = 0.0229 oz.
• To convert grains to avoirdupois pounds, divide by 7000. For example, 5 gr = 5 / 7000 = 0.0007 lb.
• To convert grains to tons (short), divide by 14000000. For example, 20 gr = 20 / 14000000 = 0.0000014 ton.
• To convert grains to kilograms, divide by 15432.3584. For example, 15 gr = 15 / 15432.3584 = 0.000972 kg.
• To convert grains to grams, divide by 15.4323584. For example, 25 gr = 25 / 15.4323584 = 1.6218 g.

## Definition of the Ounce

The ounce is defined differently in different systems of measurement. The most common ounce is the international avoirdupois ounce, which is equal to 28.349523125 grams or 437.5 grains. This is the ounce that is used for most purposes, such as measuring food, postal items, fabric, paper and boxing gloves. The avoirdupois ounce is one-sixteenth of an avoirdupois pound, which is defined as 7000 grains.

Another ounce is the international troy ounce, which is equal to 31.1034768 grams or 480 grains. This is the ounce that is used for measuring precious metals and gems, such as gold, silver, platinum and diamonds. The troy ounce is one-twelfth of a troy pound, which is defined as 5760 grains.

A third ounce is the apothecaries’ ounce, which is also equal to 480 grains, but it is divided into eight drams instead of twelve pennyweights like the troy ounce. The apothecaries’ ounce is used for measuring medicines and drugs.

There are also other historical or regional ounces that have different values, such as the Spanish ounce, the French ounce, the Portuguese ounce, the Roman/Italian ounce, the Dutch metric ounce and the Chinese metric ounce.

## How to Convert Ounces
