How to Convert Kilograms to Fluid Ounces

Scales are used to measure weight

To convert a kilogram measurement to a fluid ounce measurement, divide the weight multiplied by 33.814023 by the density of the ingredient or material.

You can use this simple formula to convert:

fluid ounces = kilograms × 33.814023ingredient density

Thus, the weight in fluid ounces is equal to the kilograms times 33.814023, divided by the density of the ingredient or material.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilograms to fluid ounces for an ingredient with a density of 0.7 g/mL.
5 kg = 5 × 33.8140230.7 = 241.528734 fl oz

Kilograms and fluid ounces are both commonly used to measure cooking ingredients.

For cooking applications, most chefs suggest measuring dry ingredients by weight rather than volume to improve accuracy in the measurements.[1] The density of dry ingredients can vary for a variety of reasons, such as compaction.

The best way to ensure an accurate conversion is to use a scale. When a scale is not available, a calculator like the one above is a good way to estimate the weight to volume conversion.

Kilograms

The definition of the kilogram changed in 2019. One kilogram was previously equal to the mass of the platinum-iridium bar, known as the International Prototype of the Kilogram, which was stored in Sèvres, France.

The 2019 SI brochure now defines the kilogram using the Planck constant, and it is defined using the meter and second.[2] It is roughly equal to the mass of 1,000 cubic centimeters of water.

The kilogram, or kilogramme, is the SI base unit for weight and is also a multiple of the gram. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilograms can be abbreviated as kg; for example, 1 kilogram can be written as 1 kg.

Fluid Ounces

The US fluid ounce is a unit of volume equal to 1/16 of a pint or 1/8 of a cup. The fluid ounce is sometimes referred to as an "ounce" but should not be confused with the unit of mass. One fluid ounce is equal to just under 29.6 milliliters, but in nutrition labeling, one fluid ounce is rounded to exactly 30 milliliters.[3]

The fluid ounce is a US customary unit of volume. Fluid ounces can be abbreviated as fl oz, and are also sometimes abbreviated as fl. oz. or oz. fl.. For example, 1 fluid ounce can be written as 1 fl oz, 1 fl. oz., or 1 oz. fl..
