How much does 16 oz of water weigh in pounds?
Pounds(lb) and Ounces(oz) are different measuring units to calculate the weight or mass of an item.
Answer: 16 ounces (oz) of water is equal to 1 pound in weight.
Let's understand the relationship and the conversion between pounds and ounces.
1 ounce (oz) = 0.0625 pounds (lb)
This can also be written as 1 pound = 16 ounces,
Now, let us convert 3 pounds to ounces.
Since 1 pound = 16 ounces,
3 pounds = 3 × 16 = 48 ounces
Thus, 16 oz of water is equal to 1 pound
