The short answer:
Nope. You cannot convert from ounces to PSI.
The Long Answer:
Ounces can be a unit of volume, weight or force in the English Engineering system. If you're using it to measure force, then I'll take a chance on trying to interpret what you said:
As you're trying to go to PSI, or Lbf/inÂ², you could convert lbf to ounces, by dividing by 16, but then you'd need to divide by the area that the vector is be applied to (in square inches) in order to get PSI.
Example, you put 1 lbf or 16 ounces of force onto 10 square inches, that would be 1.4 ounces/inÂ².
If however, you want to go from PSI to Ounces per InchÂ², then simply divide by 16.
