How Many Quarts in a Gallon
Wet or Dry
In the US there are wet and dry measurements, no matter which there will always be 4 quarts in a gallon. Think of it like a dollar;-
there are 4 quarters in a dollar,
there are 4 quarts in a gallon.
There is a hint in the name quart which is short for quarter (the quart word base is from latin quartus meaning fourth) so 4 quarters make 1
Therefore there are 4 quarts in a Wet gallon, a gallon of liquid for example, gas, water, kerosene !!
That's it done.... remember - like four quarters in a dollar there are four quarts in a gallon..
So they use this to also measure dry goods, but it is the same - there will always be 4 quarts in a gallon.
So what Dry Goods do they measure in quarts ?
An example of this is apples - in the stores you can buy apples in 1/2 peck bags so when you buy 1/2 a peck of apples it is a Dry gallon or Four quarts. !
That means it takes two dry gallons make 1 peck
So a 1/2 peck of apples is the same as 4 quarts or 1 gallon or 8 pints or 268.8 cubic inches.
So a 1 peck of apples is the same as 8 quarts or 2 gallons or 16 pints or 537.6 cubic inches.
A 1/2 Peck O' Apples me hearties
