Imperial System vs Metric System
Before we get started, it's important to understand the different units of measurement! There are two systems used throughout the world: the Imperial System (U.S.) and the metric system.
Each system varies slightly from the other in how they measure both mass and volume.
The metric system is considered to be the universal system of measurement. You may be familiar with some of these units of measurement from cooking or baking. They include:
The Imperial system is only implemented in 3 countries- the United States, Liberia, and Myanmar. The units of measurement are as follows:
How Many Grams & Milliliters In An Ounce
Grams are part of the metric system used to measure weight whereas milliliters are used to measure volume. Unfortunately, they do not convert neatly to ounces, so using a calculator or the quick reference chart below is helpful.
1 ounce = 28.35 grams
1 U.S. fluid ounce = 29.57 milliliters
How many ounces In A Gallon
There are 128 ounces in 1 gallon. To further break it down, 1 U.S. fluid ounce is the equivalent of 0.0078125 gallons. Naturally, you would begin by converting to cups followed by pints and quarts before you measure by gallons.
That being said, there are 8 fluid ounces in 1 cup, 16 fluid ounces in 1 pint, and 32 fluid ounces in 1 quart.
While this conversion might seem straightforward, it only applies to liquid measurements. The number of ounces of dry ingredients in a cup, quart, or pint will vary based on the weight of that particular ingredient.

Dry vs Liquid Ingredients
The most important factor when measuring anything in ounces is whether or not the item you are measuring is a liquid or solid. When weighing dry ingredients, a scale will give more accurate results than using cups, pints, quarts, or gallons.
For instance, 1 gallon of rice is actually 6.7 pounds (107.2 ounces) whereas a gallon of water is about 8 pounds (128 fluid ounces).
