== Fluid ounces or dry ounces?== Exactly the same as the ounces in a pound of feathers, which is 16 ounces to the pound. Unless you are talking about fluid ounces. An 18-oz. jar of Skippy, for example, contains 30 tablespoons (tbsp.) of peanut butter. That's the same as 15 fluid ounces. So, doing the arithmetic, one pound of Skippy peanut butter is about 13.33 fluid ounces.

In a pound of what? Fluid ounces is a measure of volume. Pound is a measure of weight. The number of fluid ounces in a pound is going to depend on the density of the substance in question. A pound of mercury is much smaller in volume (and thus has fewer fluid ounces) than a pound of water. If we are speaking of water, or something equivalent, 1 ounce of water by weight fills up one fluid ounce of space, so a pound of water (16 oz) is 16 fluid ounces, or 1 pint.

If we had to guess about what the question is getting at ... and we do ... it seems to be asking: "How many fluid ounces of something weigh one pound ?" The answer, of course, depends entirely on what substance the fluid ounces are full of. If the fluid ounces are full of air, it will take many many of them to weigh a pound. If the fluid ounces are full of water, then perhaps around 16 of them weigh a pound. If the fluid ounces are full of mercury, then one of them plus a few more drops weighs close to a full pound. If the fluid ounces are empty, then no matter how many of them you collect, you've accumulated no weight at all.
