When talking about gallons, we often refer the fluid volume of one gallon. One gallon is 128 fluid ounces, and two pints equal one cup. 48 pints equal 6 gallons. One pint equals one/8 gallon. 48 pints equals 16 gallons.
To convert pints into gallons, divide the pints 8 times and multiply the gallons with 0.125. The United States Customary Measurement System uses the gallon as the unit of volume. Besides, the gallon symbol is “gal”.
Likewise, the volume of fluids varies according to the temperature. A gallon of gas at 50 degrees Fahrenheit will cost more than at 90 degrees Fahrenheit. However, the difference is very small (in the single digits). The density of fluids plays an important role when converting volume to weight measurement. This rule works well for most everyday items, such as groceries, but it won’t work with engine oil, molten metallics, or liquid mercury.
One gallon is approximately equal to four quarts. A quarter of a gallon is equal to a quart. Although the units are identical, there are some differences. One gallon equals 32 US fluid ounces, whereas a quart equals 40 Imperial fluid ounces. You can convert a quart to an ounce by multiplying the volume by 32.
The gallon is a standard measurement of volume in the US. It is the smallest unit of volume in the US customary system. A gallon in the US is equal to 3.785 L or 231 cubic inches. A gallon is also known as a “gal” in some Latin American and Caribbean countries. So, a gallon equals to eight pints.
