## What is a pound?

pound or pound-mass (abbreviations: lb, lbm, lbm or ℔) is a unit of mass used mainly in the imperial and United States customary. The most common definition today is the international avoirdupois pound which defined as exactly 0.45359237 kilograms, and which is divided into 16 avoirdupois ounces. So, 1 pound = 16 ounces. The symbol comes from the Roman word libra (hence the abbreviation “lb”) while the name pound is a Germanic adaptation of the Latin phrase libra pondo, “a pound by weight”. Note that the pound is a unit of mass, not a weight unit. The unit of weight is the pound-force.

## What is a ounce

An ounce (abbreviated oz; apothecary symbol: ℥) is a unit of mass used in some systems of measurement including the avoirdupois. An ounce is equal to approximately 28.3 g (grams). The avoirdupois ounce is widely used as part of the United States customary and British imperial systems. The the troy ounce is now only used to measure the mass of precious metals such as gold and silver. The the troy ounce has a mass of about 31.1 g (grams). This calculator uses avoirdupois ounce.
