# Gallons vs. Pounds of Water Converter

## - and vice versa.

### Convert Gallons of Water to Pounds

w = 8.33 q   (1)

where

w = weight of water (lb)

q = volume of water (US gallons)

The equation is based on water with temperature 68oF (20oC) and specific weight 8.33 lb/US gal.

#### Example - Converting Gallons of Water to Pounds

50 gallons of water can be converted to pounds as

w = 8.33 (50 gallons)

= 416.5 lb

### Convert Pounds of Water into Gallons

q = w / 8.33    (1b)
