How to Convert Ounces to Liters

Scales are used to measure weight

To convert an ounce measurement to a liter measurement, divide the weight by 35.273962 times the density of the ingredient or material.

You can use this simple formula to convert:

liters = ounces35.273962 × ingredient density

Thus, the weight in liters is equal to the ounces divided by 35.273962 times the density of the ingredient or material.

For example, here's how to convert 5 ounces to liters for an ingredient with a density of 0.7 g/mL.
5 oz = 535.273962 × 0.7 = 0.20249659375 l

Ounces and liters 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.

Ounces

One ounce is a unit of mass/weight equal to 1/16 of a pound. The common ounce should not be confused with the troy ounce, which is equal to 1/12 of a troy pound.[2]

The ounce is a US customary and imperial unit of weight. Ounces can be abbreviated as oz; for example, 1 ounce can be written as 1 oz.

Liters

A liter is a unit of volume equal to 1,000 cubic centimeters.[3] The liter is a special name defined for the cubic decimeter and is exactly equal to the volume of one cubic decimeter.

The liter is an SI accepted unit for volume for use with the metric system. A liter is sometimes also referred to as a litre. Liters can be abbreviated as l, and are also sometimes abbreviated as L or . For example, 1 liter can be written as 1 l, 1 L, or 1 ℓ.
