Conversion of grams to troy ounces and troy ounces to grams is an easy one because both grams and troy ounces are units of mass, with fix ratio between these two units.
Gram is a metric system unit of mass while Troy Ounce (oz t) is defined as:
1 Troy Ounce (oz t) = 480 grains
The grain itself is defined as "ideal cereal seed" and standardized to:
1 grain = 64.79891 mg = 0.06479891 grams
Thus, the relation between grams and Troy Ounces is:
1 Troy Ounce (oz t) = 480 * 0.06479891 = 31.1034768 grams
1 gram = 0.0321507 oz t
Since the relation between standard ounce and grams is:
1 standard ounce (oz) = 28.3495 grams (g)
1 gram (g) = 0.035274 standard ounces (oz)
we can also write:
1 Troy Ounce = 1.09714 Standard Ounce

Note: since there is very little difference between "oz" and "oz t" we will write Troy Ounce instead of "oz t" as often as we can.
If You have a gold bar that weighs 50 grams that would be:
M = 50 / 31.1034768 = 1.60753 Troy Ounces
Similarly, if You have 10 Troy ounces, that would be:
