@CrakrJak

I love bio lessons :D do more of these.

I always get happy knowing these don't apply to me. I hate soda and despite the fact that my mother is a French pastry chef, I don`t like sweets at all.

Vanadil: Well beer is mostly water, as is soda, So you won't find much difference there. The water was basically used as a counterweight on scales and to make measurements on cups, pots and bottles.

If it has `fl. oz. that means fluid ounces by volume. The weight of the container makes no difference since it is a volume measurement not a weight measurement.



A can that shows both volume measures.

"Vanadil: we have weight ounces and fluid ounces here. The connection is 1 Pint = 1 Pound of water, and there are 16 units in each, So 1 fluid ounce of water = 1 ounce of weight but this only applies to water. Yeah, I agree it's a bit confusing for you metric users."


Thank you for explaining in such a polite way :). Does it also take into consideration the weight of the container it`s in though? lol. And as you say, it only counts for water and not other liquids (such as oil or beer?) It does seem very odd.

Is it wrong that I'm eating a bar of chocolate drinking 500mls of coke reading this? :D

Also, America, Please stop measuirng fluids in weight! They have volume! So much more sense.
