# Troy Weight Conversion

If we talk about **Troy weight conversion**, you must know that this is a system of measurement that the name Troy comes from the French city Troyes and most people use this measurement system for weighing arrow, arrowhead, gunpowder, gemstones and precious metals. If you use this conversion for weighing gold and silver, you must know that both are included in the precious metals. There are some different Troy weight units which automatically have different definitions and today we are going to know about how to convert troy weight and these steps will be demonstrated here that can be figured out.

The first step discussed here is the basic *Troy weight conversion*, and the first thing that should be done here is that the number of grains should be divided by 24 so that the number of pennyweights can be got by you. Then, the pennyweights should be converted so that the troy can be weighted if you divide by 20. The weight measurement will be correct if in an ounce troy contains 480 grains, so making sure whether there are already 480 grains or not is important to do.

Next thing to do in this basic *Troy weight conversion*is that the ounces troy before should be changed so that the troy can be pounded and here the troy should be divided by 12. The measurement that have been done by you will be considered correct if in a pound troy contains 240 pennyweights and 5,760 grains, so making sure again whether your measurements have been correct. After that, pound troy can be abbreviated as “lb t” and ounce troy as “oz t” so that they can be distinguished easily from the more common avoirdupois ounce and pound.

The other *Troy weight conversion*discussed in this section is how to covert Avoirdupois Weight to Troy weight, and the first thing to do here is that the ounces avoirdupois should be multiplied by 0.911 so that the equivalent number of ounces troy can be got and this can be multiplied by the reciprocal of 0.911 so that the ounces troy can be converted to ounces avoirdupois which will be 1.098. It can be multiplied by 1.1215 if the pounds avoirdupois wants to be converted to pounds troy and it can be multiplied by the reciprocal of 1.1215 if the pounds troy will be converted to pounds avoirdupois. Moreover, a pound avoirdupois is equaled with the ounces troy which will be 14.58.

Still in the same step, if the pennyweights will be changed to drams avoirdupois then it can be multiplied by 1.14 and it can be multiplied by 0.878 if the drams avoirdupois wants to be converted to pennyweight and the next, that there are 16 drams avoirdupois contained in one ounce avoirdupois should also be made sure. Additionally, if you are curious about the development of conversion above, the British who developed the above system so you can see the development today. Moreover, a system with multiples of 16:16 dropped to the troy ounce is used by the Scots.

Well, there are some introductions of Troy weight conversion that may add your knowledge about the weight conversion with different units. Some people define the weight here as the force of gravity that is found acting on a certain object. You can try to get more details by accessing your Internet.
