# One Pound Equals How Many Ounces?

One pound is equal to 16 ounces. However, this can vary a bit depending on what is being weighed. Something that is being measured in liquid form may not measure the same as something being measured in the form of a mass that is not liquid. If there are two 8 ounce blocks of cheese, putting them together would make a pound of cheese. That's just an example. It's also true that 16 ounces of milk would be about a pound, depending on what container it is in of course.
