the unscientific way would be to divide the whole thing into five roughly equal parts, which would be 1lb each. then you take each pound and divide it into 5 parts again. each of those will be about 3.2 oz. the only item where weight and volume match [ie 8 oz being equal to 8 fl oz] is water. everything else depends on how much it weighs. so your 6 oz of chocolate is heavier because only 6 oz fits into the 8 fl oz space. 6 oz of popcorn is going to be quite a bit more than a single cup.

I do not have a scale and have made a vary large(5 pounds) batch of ground beef for loose meat sandwiches. Dose anyone know how to measure 3 oz(weight) into a measuring cup.
i know 6 oz of chocolate chips is a round one cup. is it the same with ground beef and other solids that are portioned out by weight.
Or if you know how big it is compared to an ordinary house hold object
