Question from Rakesh, a student:

7.2 oz per sq. yard equals ? __ grams per sq. meter

How I can measure the weight of a Jeans fabric (in oz)? And what is the relation between grams and oz?


What I was able to find is that the weight of denim is the weight in ounces of a yard of fabric. To to convert ounces per square yard to grams per square meter you can use Google. Type 7.2 oz per square yard to grams per square meter into the search window on Google and Google responds with (7.2 oz) per (square yard) = 244.121382 grams per (square meter).
