# Ounces in a pint

There are 16 fluid ounces (fl oz) in a pint (pt) in the US customary system of measurement. In the imperial system of measurement, there are 20 fluid ounces in a pint.

## Ounces to pints converter

The following converter can be used to convert ounces to pints or pints to ounces in both the US customary and imperial systems of measurement. Just select which measurement system you would like to use and enter a value in either ounces or pints to convert between the two.

## How to convert oz to pint

To convert oz to pint in either the US customary or imperial systems of measurement, we need to know the relationship between the units in each system.

### How many ounces in a pint

In the US customary system,

In the imperial system,

Thus, to convert US fluid ounces to pints, divide by 16; to convert imperial fluid ounces to pints, divide by 20. Similarly, to convert US pints to fluid ounces, multiply by 16; to convert imperial pints to fluid ounces, multiply by 20. Below are some fluid ounce to pint conversion examples.

Examples

1. Convert 77 US customary fluid ounces to pints:

77 fl oz ÷ 16 = 4.8125 pt

2. Convert 13.2 imperial pints to fluid ounces:

13.2 pt × 20 = 264 fl oz

## What is an ounce

A fluid ounce is a measurement of volume while an ounce is a measurement of weight. The term "ounce" is commonly used to refer to either definition of the ounce, so it is important to know which ounce is being referenced. Usually, fluid ounces are specified unless the context makes it very obvious that we are talking about fluid ounces. For example, if someone says that they drank 16 ounces of water, it is safe to assume that they are referring to fluid ounces and volume rather than the weight of water that they drank.

### US customary vs imperial ounce

There are different types of fluid ounces still in use today: the US customary fluid ounce and the imperial fluid ounce. A US fluid ounce is equal to 29.5735295625 mL while an imperial fluid ounce is equal to 28.4130625 mL. The tables below show the relationships between fluid ounces and other measures of volume in each system.

#### US fluid ounce

1 fl oz | = gallon |

= quart | |

= pint | |

= cup |

#### Imperial fluid ounce

1 fl oz | = gallon |

= quart | |

= pint | |

= cup |

## What is a pint

A pint is a measurement of volume in both the imperial and US customary systems of measurement that is equal to ⅛ gallon. Some everyday examples of things measured in pints include beer, sour cream, ice cream, berries, and more. In either system of measurement, the definition of the pint is based on the gallon. Since both systems of measurement have different definitions of the gallon, the actual value for the volume of a pint differs in each system. However, the pint shares the same relationship to other measures of volume within the systems such as the gallon, quart, cup, etc.

### US customary pint

US customary pints are separated into liquid pints and dry pints. A liquid quart is a measurement of volume used to measure liquids. A dry quart is also a measurement of volume, but it is specifically used for dry ingredients. For example, granola, berries, rice, and quinoa are all foods that may be measured in pints.

#### Liquid pint

The table below shows the relationship between liquid pints and other liquid measures of volume in the US customary system.

1 US liquid pint | = gallon |

= quart | |

= 2 cups | |

= 16 fl oz | |

= 473.176473 mL | |

= 0.83267418463 imperial pints | |

= 16.65348369 imperial fluid ounces |

#### Dry pint

The table below shows the relationship between dry pints and other measures of volume.

1 US dry pint | = 0.015625 bushels |

= 0.0625 pecks | |

= 0.125 dry gallons | |

= 0.5 dry quarts | |

= 550.6104713575 mL | |

= 0.96893897192092 imperial pints |

### Imperial pint

Unlike the US customary system, the imperial system only has liquid measures. The relationships between imperial pints and other measurements of volume in the imperial system are shown in the table below.

1 imperial pint | = gallon |

= quart | |

= 20 imperial fluid ounces | |

= 568.26125 mL | |

= 1.20009499255 US liquid pints | |

= 19.21519881 US fluid ounces |
