Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

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/in², 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/in².

If however, you want to go from PSI to Ounces per Inch², then simply divide by 16.
