Here is the data:
1 fluid ounce (US) = 29.547 ml
The imperial fl.oz is sightly smaller at 28.41 ml.

The conversion to ounces of weight depends on the density of the stuff. One
imperial fluid ounce of pure water at a temperature of 60 F (if I remember
well, but I am not certain of the exact reference temperature, could be 50)
will weight one ounce.
