Definition of a Gallon

The US custom measurement system uses the gallon as a unit for volume measurement. Just like the US has a wet and dry quart, so there is also a US dry gallon as well as a US wet galon. The Imperial gallon also has its own definition. The US dry gallon, and the US liquid galon are used mostly in the United States. However, they are also used in some Caribbean and Latin American countries. They are usually used for selling gasoline. The Imperial gallon is still used in Canada, the United Kingdom and certain countries in the Caribbean.

The Imperial gallon, which is currently equivalent to 4.56 liters of water, is used in Commonwealth countries. Commonwealth countries are those which belong to the Commonwealth of Nations. This is a political association of nations that have a loose connection and cover more than 50 nations. These countries are countries that were once part of the British Empire. The Commonwealth of Nations includes Australia, India, Canada, Australia, and other nations in Africa. The Imperial gallon can also be defined in terms of fluid ounces. There are 160 fluid ounces contained in an imperial galon.

The United States defines the liquid gallon as a wet gallon. This is equivalent to 2313 or about 3.785 L. It weighs approximately 3.78 kg (or 8.34 pounds). The volume can be expressed in US ounces, much like the Imperial gallon. A US gallon contains 128 fluid ounces. There are 4 quarts, 2 pints, and 2 cups. A pint has 16 fluid ounces. The US dry gallon has a volume of 268.80 cubic inches, or 4.40 liters. A dry gallon also equals 1/8th of an American Winchester bushel. This extension of the Winchester measurement system is mentioned above. It is not relevant in most cases and is not used in commerce.

The liter is widely used in volume calculations by most countries around the globe. The International System of Measurements doesn’t recognize the liter, but the ISM’s prefix system can be used with liters. In addition, the ISM accepts liters as valid units for volume calculations. Although the milliliter is the most commonly used unit of measurement in the world, other liter-based units such as the deciliter or hectoliter are sometimes used.

While most people use liters to calculate volume, the United Kingdom and Canada, as well as several Caribbean countries, use the Imperial gallon. In countries like Antigua and Barbuda (the Bahamas), the British Virgin Islands and Dominica, St. Lucia, Montserrat, and St. Lucia the Imperial gallon is used as a measurement unit. The US standard gallon is more popular than the Imperial gallon. Countries like Ecuador, El Salvador and Guatemala continue to use the US gallon along with the United States. This is usually done for gasoline sales, however.

    Never pay down a deposit in a bank account until you have met the seller, seen signed a purchase agreement. No serious private advertisers ask for a down payment before you meet. Receiving an email with an in-scanned ID does not mean that you have identified the sender. You do this on the spot, when you sign a purchase agreement.
