Liquid Measurement - Number of Quarts in a Gallon?
Useful Information for Cooking
Quarts and gallons are units of liquid measure that are currently used mainly in the United States.
One gallon consists of four (4) quarts. However, we can break this down further to include teaspoons, tablespoons, cups (measuring cups for cooking, not coffee mugs), pints, quarts and gallons. We can also include ounces which are another unit of liquid measure.
It should be noted that in this hub I am discussing liquid measure.
NOTE: Ounces and pints are also units of solid measure but the weight and volume are not necessarily the same for liquid and solid measures.
Since the logical uses of this knowledge of liquid measure are cooking and comparing units in a grocery store, I will put these measures and their relationships in a table format starting with the smallest unit, which is a teaspoon, and continuing to the largest, which is a gallon:
3 Teaspoons = 1 Tablespoon = ½ Fluid Ounce
16 Tablespoons = 1 Cup = 8 Fluid Ounces
2 Cups = 1 Pint = 16 Fluid Ounces
2 Pints = 1 Quart = 32 Fluid Ounces
4 Quarts = 1 Gallon = 128 Fluid Ounces
