## Introduction

The relationship between cups, quarts, and gallons is essential for measuring ingredients for recipes and other household tasks in the United States and throughout the world.

Knowing how to convert between different measurement systems like the Metric System and the Imperial Measurement System or between liquid and dry measurements (e.g. dry gallon vs. a gallon of water) is also important.

Here are some common conversion questions and answers:

## Measurement Conversions

1 US gallon = 4 US quarts = 8 US pints = 16 US cups = 128 US fluid ounces = 3.78 liters

1 imperial gallon = 4 imperial quarts = 8 imperial pints = 18.184 imperial cups = 154.8 imperial fluid ounces = 4.54609 liters

1 US cup = 8 US fluid ounces = 0.236588 liters

1 imperial cup = 10 imperial fluid ounces = 0.284131 liters

1 US pint = 2 US cups = 16 US fluid ounces = 0.4731765 liters

1 imperial pint = 2 imperial cups = 20 imperial fluid ounces = 0.568261 liters

1 US quart = 2 US pints = 4 US cups = 32 US fluid ounces = 0.946353 liters

1 imperial quart = 2 imperial pints = 4 imperial cups = 40 imperial fluid ounces = 1.13652 liters

1 US fluid ounce = 0.0295735 liters

1 imperial fluid ounce = 0.0351951 liters

1 cubic inch = 0.0163871 US fluid ounces = 0.0000295735 liters

## Cheat Sheet

For easy reference, here is a handy chart of the most common conversions for liquid and dry ingredients:

US Liquid Measurements

1 gallon = 4 quarts = 8 pints = 16 cups = 128 fluid ounces

1 quart = 2 pints = 4 cups = 32 fluid ounces

1 pint = 2 cups = 16 fluid ounces

1 cup = 8 fluid ounces

Imperial Liquid Measurements from the United Kingdom (UK) Imperial System

1 UK gallon = 4 quarts = 8 pints = 18.184 cups = 154.8 fluid ounces

1 quart = 2 pints = 4 cups = 40 fluid ounces

1 pint = 2 cups = 20 fluid ounces

1 cup = 10 fluid ounces

Dry Measurements

1 gallon = 4 quarts = 8 pints = 16 cups

1 quart = 2 pints = 4 cups

1 pint = 2 cups

1 cup = 8 ounces

## Using a Kitchen Conversion Chart

Using a kitchen conversion chart can help you quickly and accurately measure ingredients for your favorite recipes. Here is a printable conversion chart that you can use in your kitchen:

US Liquid Measurements

1 Gallon (gal) = 4 Quart (qt) = 8 Pint (pt) = 16 Cup (c)= 128 Fluid Ounce (fl oz)

Imperial Liquid Measurements

1Gallon (gal) = 4 Quart (qt) = 8 Pint (pt) = 18.184 Cup (c) = 154.8 Fluid Ounce (fl oz)

Dry Measurements

1 Gallon (gal) = 4 Quart (qt) = 8 Pint (pt) = 16 Cup (c)

## Using Liquid and Dry Measuring Cups

Using the right type of measuring cup is essential for accurate measurement.

Liquid measuring cups are designed to measure liquid ingredients or wet ingredients such as water, milk, and oil.

Dry measuring cups are designed to measure dry ingredients such as flour, sugar, and rice.
