  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.
