1. 4 oz = 4/16 = 1/4 pound
so we have 5.25 pounds
when in danger or in doubt, type

5.25 pounds = grams

into a Google search window and get

5.25 pounds = 2381.36 grams
which is 2.38136 Kilograms

NOw I do physics and kilograms is NOT weight for me, it is mass
I would say the WEIGHT is
W = m g = 2.38136 * 9.81 m/s^2
= 23.4 Newtons, but I do not know how technical your course is.
