**Definitions:**

**Ounce** (abbreviation: **oz**): is a unit of mass used in customary (imperial) systems of measurement in British. It is most popular in the retail sale of groceries in the United States, also in many other matters of domestic and international trade between customary measurement driven countries.

**Newton** (abbreviation: **N**): is the International System of Units (SI) derived unit of force. It is named after Isaac Newton in recognition of his work on classical mechanics, specifically Newton's second law of motion. One newton is the force needed to accelerate one kilogram of mass at the rate of one metre per second squared in direction of the applied force.

## How to Convert Ounces to Newtons

*Example: How many newtons are equivalent to 0.85 Ounces?*

As;

1 Ounces = 0.27801851651827 newtons

0.85 Ounces = Y newtons

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 0.85 times 0.27801851651827 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 0.85 * 0.27801851651827 / 1 = 0.23631573904053 newtons

Answer is: 0.23631573904053 newtons are equivalent to 0.85 Ounces.
