STOP GATS! STOP LIBERALISM!
When will the United States realize that the metric system should be taught in all US schools?
Never assume, either you know, or you don't!
I`m still old enough to remember the old Imperial measurements used here in the British Isles.
Money especially...pounds, shillings and pence...and it really did seem to be worth more!
I still use stones, pounds and ounces and have to constantly convert them.
(typical woman thing...I weight eight and a half stones...well, it makes me sound much lighter than the kilogram equivalent )
What are you on about? I'm almost two decades younger and I still use them!
I'm just trying to make my dinner, and the instructions say I need 1/2 pint of water and 4 fluid ounces of milk. I know pints very well, so can do that by eye! But I am not sure how many floz in a pint. I came here, but didn't find it, so I'll post what I found on Wiki:
Next time I can't remember, I'll probably be back here!A fluid ounce (abbreviated fl oz, fl. oz. or oz. fl.) is a unit of volume in both the imperial and the US customary systems. It is common to refer to the unit simply as an ounce, especially in cases where no confusion with the unit of mass (also called an ounce) is likely to occur.
[edit] Definitions
Imperial fluid ounce
The imperial fluid ounce is 1⁄160 of an imperial gallon making it very nearly the volume occupied by one avoirdupois ounce of water.[1]
1 imperial fluid ounce = 1/160 imperial gallons
= 1/20 imperial pints
= 1/5 imperial gills
= 8 imperial fluid drams
= 28.4130625 millilitres (exactly)[2] (cc)
≈ 1.733871455 cubic inches
≈ 0.960759940 U.S. fluid ounces
U.S. customary fluid ounce
The U.S. customary fluid ounce is defined to be 1⁄128 of a U.S. gallon. This volume of cool, pure water weighs about 1.04 avoirdupois ounces (29.5 g).
1 U.S. fluid ounce = 1/128 U.S. gallon
= 1/16 U.S. pints
= 1/4 U.S. gills
= 8 U.S. fluid drams
= 1.8046875 cubic inches (exactly)[3]
= 29.5735295625 millilitres (exactly)[4] (cc)
≈ 1.040842731 imperial fluid ounces
U.S. food labeling fluid ounce
U.S. regulation 21 CFR 101.9(b)(5)(viii) also defines a fluid ounce as exactly 30 millilitres, but this is for use in nutrition labeling only.[5] This is not meant to concur with the customary US definition exactly but is a common source of confusion.[citation needed]
30 millilitres ≈ 1.055852392 imperial fluid ounces[2]
≈ 1.014420681 U.S. customary fluid ounces[3][4]
≈ 1.830712323 cubic inches[4]
Other useful conversions
Given the definitions above, the number of US fluid ounces in one liter is:
1/29.5735295625 × 1000 = 33.8140
There are thus about 34 customary US fluid ounces in one liter.
Similarly, there are exactly 33 1/3 US food-labeling fluid ounces in a liter.
So.... Cheese, Leek and Ham pasta for me!
The metre was originally defined to be one ten millionth of the distance between the North Pole and the Equator through Paris.
kilo k 1000 10^{3} hecto h 100 10^{2} deca da 10 10^{1} (one) (unit) 1 10^{0} deci d 0.1 10^{−1} centi c 0.01 10^{−2} milli m 0.001 10^{−3}
- the kilogram and kilometre are a thousand grams and metres respectively, and a milligram and millimetre are one thousandth of a gram and metre respectively. These relations can be written symbolically as: 1 mg = 0.001 g and 1 km = 1000 m
1 cubic cm of water weighs 1 gram. 1000 cubic cm weighs 1 Kilogram.
