Need easy g/m^2 to oz/yd^2 conversion

I am looking for a easy program or online conversion for g/m^2 to oz/yd^2 and vice versa.

Maybe even a chart that gives me the common weights of composite fabrics in metric and US weights.

Thanks in advance,

Re: ounces/linear yd -> grams/linear meter

To calculate the conversion factor, you start with the basic units.

For this:
ounces/yard to grams/meter

You would use this formula:
(ounces to grams)/(yard to meter)

You need to know this:
ounces to grams
yards to meters

1 ounce = 28.349523125 gram
1 yard = 0.9144 meter

Now calculate:
ounce/yard * (28.349523125/0.9144) = gram/meter

Your conversion factor is 31.0034154910324, which we can just round to 31.

23.75 oz/yd * 31 = 736.25 g/m

mm not exactly.

Just use google.com! Type in oz/yd^2 to g/m^2 or vice versa g/m^2 to oz/yd^2 and hit enter. It does it for you.

1 oz / (yd^2) = 33.9057475 g / (m^2)

1 g / (m^2) = 0.0294935247 oz / (yd^2)

Hi Reinking

The conversion factor given by flybike (33.9) is right. The difference with the value you gave is that 31 is useful to convert oz/yd into g/m, but not oz/sqyd into g/sqm.

Use the logic presented to compute oz/sqyd into g/sqm or simply take the reciprocal of the value shown in the example I posted.
