The conversion rate from grams to ounces is one gram equals 0.035274 ounces, which is a rounded figure. To answer the question of how many ounces are 250 g, this figure is multiplied by 250; resulting in 8.8185 oz. This is actually a rounded figure, if allowing more decimal places, the actual figure is 8.81849768073511oz.

  • Impracticality of multiple decimal places
This, of course, is impractical when trying to weigh ingredients for a recipe, for instance. For this, the figure is rounded either up or down. In other words, it can be rounded to 8.8185 to start with, which is what was done at the start.

This, however, may still be impractical for many kitchen scales. It is therefore rounded further, say to 8.82, 8.8 or simply 9 oz, depending on the display possible on the scales in question. Even the slightly higher 9 oz will have very little impact on how the recipe will ultimately turn out, so it is perfectly safe to round up to this.

  • Laboratory settings
In laboratories, much greater precision is usually required, which is why very high precision instruments are used to weigh quantities. Here it would be possible to weigh out the exact figure of 8.81849768073511 without a problem, although obviously, such high quantities are rarely used. It would be far more likely for one gram, or 0.0352739907229404 oz to be weighed here.

  • Conversion of measurements
Whether weight, length and distance, volume or temperature, there are times when one or the other has to be converted. It is not always possible to remember all the conversion rates, which is why conversion calculators such as the one at curezone come in extremely handy. Conversions are possible, for instance, from grams to ounces or from ounces to grams.
