# Ounces and Pounds vs. Grams

## Converting ounces (ozs.) and pounds (lbs.) to grams (g).

• Mass is a measure of the amount of material in an object with kg in the SI-system and slugs in the Imperial system
• Weight is the gravitational force acting on a body mass - Newton in the SI-system and pounds in the Imperial system

Note - it is not possible to convert pounds (or ounces) to kg (or grams) without including the force of gravity.

It is a common misconception to convert weight in pounds (ounces) to kg (grams) as mass as a measure of weight as indicated below.

Mass in kg must be multiplied with acceleration of gravity (9.807 m/s2) to be comparable with weight in pounds.
