emilyg -

Can't be converted. "mm" is the abbreviation for millimeter, which is a linear measurement, while "oz" can either be weight or volume (fluid ounces).

In any event:

986 ml = 1 qt.
1 kg = 2.2 lbs.
25.4 mm = 1 in.

Hope this helps.

Happy holidays,

Volume is simply the 3 dimensional product of linear measurement, so as long as the ".25 mm's" she wants to convert is really a volume it's easy to convert it to ounces. Some shapes are easier than others, but a cubic centimeter and a milliliter have the same volume, so the conversion is easy.  A millimeter is 1/10th of  a centimeter, so a cubic millimeter is 1/1000th of a CC and 1/1000th of a milliliter. A milliliter is  0.033814023 US ounces. The conversion will be different for Imperial measure.

The site below will happily make the conversion directly from cubic millimeters to ounces, as will many of the other conversion sites that can easily be found with a google search. It's just up to Emily to determine the volume she's presumably referring to. Of course if she wants to convert mm to weight she's going to have a much harder time of it.

Em,

I'm coming up with 25ml = 0.8453657 oz.

I guess there must be some good lottery numbers in there somewhere.

Hi,

The first reply was correct. A linier measure does not convert into a volume measure.

For those who inventively extrapolated a solution....is that ounces of water, ounces of gold, or a bag full of lottery numbers?..*L* Knowing the density of the material in a given volume helps.

You are a slave to the choices you have made.  jk

Even a blind squirrel will occasionally find an acorn.

There is no elevator to success, you will have to take the stairs.
