How Many Quarts in a Gallon

Updated on January 15, 2012

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.


==============================================================

Wet

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..

.

..

Dry

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

The Last Word

      @Ivorwen.. thanks for the comment, but not if they are 4 year olds and accustomed to getting their quarters in 10's... perhaps this symptomatic of the malaise in America.. they lost sight of the quarter at an early age... :-)

      @Petra this was one of the questions posed in the old Hub-bank and I could not resist answering it, on the face of it the subject matter is simple but Ii am convinced it is 4 year olds that are reading it... :-)

      Very clear and concise, not that the subject matter is that difficult. :)

      Drax,

      for the ones who can't figure out what a 1/4 is trying to explain simple aritmetics is ... Should you send them back to school? (not to an American school this time around!)

      well Giovinny and Savagion... it is always nice to be able to hide behind Anonymity... how hard is this, does the word quart not tell you anything or maybe you are four... if you are four I apologise for making this difficult and will make another one for four year olds...

      Well Kaitlyn... here it is again since you seem to have missed it...

      quart is short for quarter so 4 quarters make 1, just like a dollar 4 quarters = 1 dollar... so there are 4 quarts in1 gallon..

      Your verbage is concerned with the number of cubic inches in a peck...why do you use metric dimensions in the image of the 1/2 peck of apples?
