Taking these one at the time:
what is the volume in ml of 1.00pt of heavy cream?

Go to http://www.convert-me.com/en/convert/volume
what mass of cereal in kilograMS IS IN A 40.0 OZ BOX?

Go to http://www.convert-me.com/en/convert/weight
HOW MANY MINUTES IS A 130 YEARS?

This can be calculated using:

130 years x 365.25 days/year x 24 hours/day x 60 minutes/hour =

years cancel to days, days cancel to hours, hours cancel to minutes.

The numerical answer is left as an exersize to the student.

Actually, there is no grams-to-ounces measure....

Is there a grams-to ounces measurement converter? I looked on the appropriate page, but could not find it. What about liter to grams? What about a liquid ounce to dry ounce?

Please advise.

One Ounce is 28.35 grams. It is on the http://www.convert-me.com/en/convert/weight page. To convert liters to grams, remember that one liter of water weighs one kilogram, therefore one liter of water weighs 1,000 grams.

Now, a liquid ounce to a dry ounce is a different question all together. An ounce is a measurement of weight. The ounce has been variously misused throughout history by being used as a measurement of volume due to the fact that the smallest "dry" measure is a pint

The only way to answer the question is to know what you are measuring. If you have an ounce of feathers, it will take up a lot more volume than an ounce of lead will.

An ounce of water for example, weighs 29.6 ml and thus would have a volume of 29.6 ccs.
