### How do you convert one pound of olive oil to fluid ounces?

The specific gravity of olive varies. Most research shows it to be between 0.915 and 0.918. Using the median (0.9165) of that spread will show that one gallon of olive oil weighs about 7.64 pounds per gallon or 7.64 pounds per 128 fluid ounces. This is found by multiplying the specific gravity of the oil (0.9165) by the weight of one gallon of water. Water weighs 8.34 pounds per gallon. Now a simple proportional setup…

### How much does sixteen ounces of milk weigh?

Answer: 16 ounces of liquid is one eighth of a gallon. A gallon of liquid averages 8.12-8.14 lbs so about 1.2 lbs.
