How to Convert Pints to Ounces

Scales are used to measure weight

To convert a pint measurement to an ounce measurement, multiply the volume by 16.690809 times the density of the ingredient or material.

You can use this simple formula to convert:

ounces = pints × 16.690809 × ingredient density

Thus, the volume in ounces is equal to the pints multiplied by 16.690809 times the density of the ingredient or material.

For example, here's how to convert 5 pints to ounces for an ingredient with a density of 0.7 g/mL.
5 pt = 5 × 16.690809 × 0.7 = 58.417831 oz

This calculator converts to ounces in weight, if you're trying to convert to a volume measurement in fluid ounces try our pints to fluid ounces calculator.

Pints and 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 volume to weight conversion.

Pints

The US liquid pint is a unit of fluid volume equal to one-eighth of a gallon, one-half of a quart, or two cups. The liquid pint should not be confused with the dry pint (US) or the imperial pint, which are different units.

The pint is a US customary unit of volume. Pints can be abbreviated as pt; for example, 1 pint can be written as 1 pt.

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.
