There are 28.35 grams in one ounce. A gram is a measurement of the metric system first adopted in France in 1799, and now the basic system of measurement in almost every country in the world. The metric system is an international decimalised system of measurement, and used mostly in favor of the imperial system, which is where an ounce comes from. The UK officially uses the metric system although the imperial system is still widely used in many cases, such as draught beer, which is still sold in pints, a measurement of the imperial classification. UK road signs distances are also displayed with imperial measurements of yards and miles, and road speed limits are also displayed in imperial values of miles per hour. The metric system was designed to be universal, enabling use across every country and nationality, and it uses common symbols independent of language, such as km for kilometre. In 1995 the Units of Measurement Regulations Act stated that all measuring devices used in trade or retail must be capable of measuring and displaying metric quantities, although imperial quantities are usually found alongside them. Although there are 28.35 grams in an ounce, there are two other values of ounces for different functions. The troy ounce is a measurement for weighing gold and other precious metals, and was derived from the Roman monetary system. A troy ounce is 31.10 grams, slightly more than the avoirdupois ounce questioned here. A fluid ounce is an imperial measurement for fluid but has a metric value of ml, 29.57 ml.

One ounce is equal to 28.3495231 grams. Oz is basically the abbreviation that is sued for ounce. It is better known as the unit of mass that is sued in different systems, which in turn forms a part of English units, Imperial units, and United States customary units.

The gram also known as gramme has the symbol g, which is basically the unit of mass. It is well defined as "the total mass of a quantity of clean water equivalent to the dice of the hundredth fraction of an indicator, and at the high temperature of melting ice." It is currently known as the one one-thousandth of the SI base unit, the kilogram, or 1×10−3 kg.

It depends upon what sort of ounce your talking about.
A standard avoirdupois ounce (the kind used to measure food and babies) = 28.35 grams
A troy ounce (used to measure precious metals and not much else) = 31.1035 grams

To confuse things, an avoirdupois pound has 16 avoirdupois ounces, but a troy pound only has 12 troy ounces.
