Liters in a gallon

There is a lot of confusion about how many liters there are in a gallon of water. It breaks down like so: there are 3. 785 liters in a gallon of water. This means a liter of water weighs 1 kilogram.Another way you could check your work is to restart the problem completely with the original 10 liters and convert that to gallons using our new conversion factors of 3.78 liters per gallon. Except this time, you would divide 10 liters by this number to get your answer: 10 liters divided by 3.78 liters per gallon equals 2.64 gallons. Let's assume you need to convert 10 liters to gallons. Simply multiply the amount you have (10 liters) by the conversion factor: 10 liters times 0.264 gallons per liter equals 2.64 gallons. So 10 liters is equal to 2.64 gallons.

GALLON

Definition: A gallon is a unit of volume specifically regarding liquid capacity in both the US customary and imperial systems of measurement. The US gallon is defined as 231 cubic inches (3.785 liters). In contrast, the imperial gallon, which is used in the United Kingdom, Canada, and some Caribbean nations, is defined as 4.54609 liters. In both systems, the gallon is divided into four quarts. Quarts are then divided into two pints and pints are divided into two cups. A cup is comprised of two gills, making one gallon equal four quarts, eight pints, sixteen cups, or thirty-two gills. Further differentiating the US and the imperial gallon, a US gill is divided into four fluid ounces, while an imperial gallon is divided into five. A US fluid ounce is therefore 1/128 of a US gallon while an imperial fluid ounce is 1/160 of an imperial gallon.

Current use: In the United States (US), gallons are often used for larger containers, such as half gallon tubs of ice cream or one-gallon cartons of milk. Gallons are also widely used in fuel economy expression in the US, as well as some of its territories. The imperial gallon is used even more sparingly than the US gallon, with most countries around the world using liters when referencing fuel. The gallon (gal) is a unit of measuring for measuring liquid capacity. It is used in both US customary and British imperial systems of measurements. There are three different sizes of gallons used today. The imperial gallon is 4.54 liters and common in the Commonwealth states and some Caribbean nations. The US gallon is about 3.785 liters and common in the United States and Latin America. The U.S dry gallon is about 4.405 Litres or 1⁄8 US bushel. (Source: www.worldatlas.com)
