## Gallon (gal) definition

A gallon is a unit of measure, which is used to measure volume commonly used in the USA and Britain. The gallon can be abbreviated as Gal. In comparison to the liter in the metric system, there are approximately 4.546litersin an imperial gallon, 3.785 liters in a US liquid gallon, and 4.405 liters in a US dry gallon. In its own measurement systems, both US gallon and imperial gallon equals 4 quarts and 8 pints in their respective systems.

### Gallon (gal) history

Like other units in the US customary and imperial systems, the history of gallon as a volumic measurement unit dates back to the Medieval Ages when the gallon was used to measure wine and beer in England. The wine gallon size and the ale (beer) gallon size were different. The first one was equal to the size of a US gallon, while the second was a bit larger and equal to the size of an imperial gallon.

Historically, the word gallon originates from the Old Norman French galon, corresponding to Old French jalon, which is related to jale (meaning bowl) in Old French.

### Gallon (gal) current use

Similar to the quart, there are three types of gallons including a US liquid gallon, a US dry gallon, and an imperial gallon. The sizes of these gallons are slightly different as can be seen above. Of the three types, an imperial gallon is the largest one which is equal to 4.54609 liters (exactly) or approximately 10 pounds of pure water at 62° Fahrenheit.

Of the two US gallons, the US liquid gallon is more commonly used to measure gasoline, water, and milk while the US dry gallon is less common.

The gallon is commonly used in the sale of fuel for vehicles. The imperial gallon is widely used in the sale of petrol in British Overseas Territories and the countries influenced by the UK even though the UK has switched to a newer system of measurement, the SI. Gasoline sold by the US is measured in the US liquid gallon, which can be found in, certainly, the USA, and some countries in Latin America.

## Pounds (lbs) definition

Pound, or avoirdupois pound (standard symbols: s), is a unit of mass or weight in the UK imperial systems or the US customary systems of measurement. One pound equals 0.45359237 kilograms as legally defined in the international avoirdupois system or 16 avoirdupois ounces.

### Pound history

Historically, the term “pound” is derived from the Roman expression libra pondo, in which pondo means weight and libra (scale or balance) is a mass unit used in ancient Rome. That’s why the pound is abbreviated as lbs.

### Pound current use

The U.S. is really the only industrialized nation that officially uses pounds today, most other industrialized nations have metricated and switched over to kilograms.

And of course, many other Commonwealth nations which previously used Imperial Units (e.g. New Zealand and Australia) still informally will measure in pounds, especially for baby weight.

## Convert 20 gallons to pounds with formula and examples

Both pounds and gallons are common units found in cooking books. gallons are recommended for dry ingredients and should be measured with a scale. In case no scale can be found, then it should be converted into pounds by multiplying the weight in grams withdensity of the material and then multiply by 8.345404

(Video) How Many Pounds In A Gallon

pounds = (gallons x density of the material) x 8.345404

Thus, if the recipe reads 200 gallons of all-purpose flour, and we know its density is 0.529 g/ml, with aUS legal gallon, we have:

(200 x0.529) x 8.345404= 882.9437 pound.
