How To Convert 16 oz To mL
posted by Robert:
The conversion of 16 fluid ounces (fl. oz) into milliliters (mL) will depend upon which fluid ounce you are measuring in - the US fluid ounce or the UK imperial fluid ounce (yes, there are two).
You'll notice I've referred to fluid ounces, by the way, and not the normal ounce. Ounce is a unit of mass/weight, fluid ounce is a unit of volume. So, I'm assuming you're talking about the volume one. If not, you'll need this weight to volume converter
Here's the facts:
- 1 US fluid ounce = 29.5735295625 mL
- 1 UK fluid ounce = 28.413064262467 mL
16 US fl. oz to mL
1 US fluid ounce = 29.5735295625 mL.
16 × 29.5735295625 = 473.17647296 mL.
Rounding that figure, we get our answer. 16 US fl. oz = 473.176 mL (or 1 US pint).
16 UK fl. oz to mL
1 UK fluid ounce = 28.413064262467 mL.
16 × 28.413064262467 = 454.60902819948 mL.
Rounding that figure, we get our answer. 16 UK fl. oz = 454.609 mL.
