A 10-ounce can holds up to 10 ounces of material, although in many cases, the can may not be filled to capacity. The capacity is not determined by the contents, as a fluid ounce is equivalent to a standard ounce. A 10-ounce can may hold either solids or liquids.
The United States and the United Kingdom have their own versions of the ounce. The values of these units differ slightly, as 1 ounce in Great Britain is equal to 0.96076 ounces in the United States. This unit is widely used to measure volume with liquid substances. One ounce is equal to 2 tablespoons, and there are 16 ounces in a pint.
