Let’s get to the theory.
The weight of an object is its mass multiplied by gravity.
The volume of an object is the amount of space it fills and the mass is the amount of matter in an object.
In the United States, weight is measured in ounces (oz), pounds (lb), and tons (t).
Europe and other countries use units: gram (g), kilogram (kg), and tonne (t).
8 oz to ml
Are you looking for a quick answer? It all depends on which fluid-ounce measurement you use.
8 fl oz (US customary liquid ounces) = 236 milliliters
8 fl oz (US nutrition fluid ounces) = 240 milliliters
8 fl (British imperial fluid ounces) = 227 milliliters
Well, let’s dig deeper and get to the theory now. How well do you know about ounces?
What Are Ounces?
An ounce is a standard unit in the United States. It has several meanings in terms of mass, weight, or volume. Ounces are used in the United States to measure packaged foods and food portions. On packages, you often see the abbreviation oz, which comes from the Italian and Spanish word uncia (meaning “twelfth part”).
In terms of weight, an ounce is the smallest weight measurement. It is about the same as a slice of bread.
1 ounce (oz) = 28.34 (g) = 0.028 kg
16 ounces (oz) = 1 pound (lb).
A fluid ounce measures volume, how much space something takes up. It is abbreviated to fl oz.
A fluid ounce is a unit of liquid volume equal to 1/8 of a cup.
US customary fluid ounce is 29.5 ml
US food labeling fluid ounce is 30 ml
The British imperial fluid ounce is 28.4 ml.
1 fl oz = 1/8 cup
1 fl oz = 2 tablespoons
1fl oz = 29.5 ml (US customary)
1 fl oz = 30 ml (US food labeling)
1fl oz = 28.4 ml (British imperial)
What is ML?
Milliliters are units of liquid volume or capacity in the metric system. Liquids are measured using milliliters. For instance, a milliliter measures the amount of liquid a water bottle can hold.
Another definition of a milliliter is one-thousandth of a liter or 0.001 liters.
1 milliliter = 0.001 liter
1 liter = 1000 milliliters.
1 cup = 240 ml (US food labeling)
1 cup = 236 ml (US customary fluid)
How many ML in 8 Oz?
1 cup = 8 oz = 240 ml (for food)
1 cup = 8 oz = 236 ml (customary fluid).
How many ML in 8 oz in the US?
For serving sizes on nutrition labels in the US, regulation 21 CFR §101.9(b) requires the use of “common household measures”, and 21 CFR §101.9(b)(5) defines a “common household” fluid ounce as exactly 30 milliliters.
A customary fluid ounce is 29.5 milliliters.
For nutrition fluid ounces 8 oz is 240 ml.
Customary fluid, 8 oz is 236 ml.
8oz to grams
1 ounce = 28.34 grams. To convert ounces to grams, multiply ounces by 28.34. Example of converting 8oz to grams:
8 oz x 28.34 g = 226.72 g
How to Convert ML to Oz?
It’s important to know how to convert ml to oz when cooking. If you want to convert milliliters to ounces, divide milliliters by 30 then you’ll get ounces. If you have to convert something other than food divide milliliters by 29.5. Example:
240 ml / 30 = 8oz
236 ml/ 29.5 = 8oz
How to Convert Oz to ML Step by Step?
If you have to convert ounces to milliliters, all you have to do is remember the main fixed units. Take notes and save them. Ready?
1 fl oz is 30 ml (if you measure food).

- To convert ounces to milliliters multiply ounces by 30. Remember that this measurement is a liquid volume conversion for water, milk, juice, etc. When converting dry-weight ounces to milliliters, you should know which ingredients you are measuring. Talking of it, use kitchen scales for precise results.
- If you want to convert customary fluid, something other than food multiply the ounces by 29.5.

Common Mistakes Made When Converting Fluid Oz to ML
Sometimes people forget that there are several kinds of ounces – weight ounces and volume ounces. Weight ounces are not the same as volume ounces.
To get the best baking results:
A) When measuring liquids, use a measuring cup.
B) Use a kitchen scale for dry ingredients. Weigh them in ounces (or grams). Do not use volume measurement if you measure dry ingredients. It is one of the most common mistakes people make.
