# conversion questions

#### komala

I google around and still can't find the answer and I thought this is the right place.

I never use quart before, can anyone convert from quart to gram/kg for me(dry and liquid) for me?  1 quart of onion  =      gram/kg and

1 quart cider vinegar  =      ml

Thanks and cheers!

US or Imperial quart?

both

Tin, correct me irf I'm wrong here.

Imperial gallon = 160 fl oz

US gallon 128 fl oz

I believe 1 fl oz = 1 oz by weight, ie 2 fl oz water = 2 ounces

4 qt to a gallon.

1 oz = 28 grams

soo...............

1 us qt = 32 oz

32 x 28 = 896 grams.

US is the only country left in the world to still use imperial measurements, and even then, they have their "Own" gallon.

Stick to metric, soooooooooooo much easier, and no fractions either.

1 fl oz = 1 oz by weight, ie 2 fl oz water = 2 ounces

Eh, sort of. If you used that rule, a gallon of water would weigh 8 pounds, but it really weighs 8.34 pounds. Close enough for some things

Metric is better because the definitions of the units were made explicitly in reference to weight and other properties of water. IE, 1 liter is defined as the volume of water that weighs 1 kilogram.

This Quart to Liter Calculator may help.

Now, a caveat. A "quart of onions" is a volumetric measure where vto actual amount of onions is highly dependent on the physical shape of the onions, i,e, a quart of large chunks will use far less onions than a quart of fine dice.

Conversion from volume to weight is very accurate for liquids and fairly accurate for most solids of a consistent nature, i.e. granulated sugar, long grain rice, as long as care is taken not to compress or aerate.

Now, for your original question:
• 1 U.S. quart (liquid) = 0.946352 L or 946.352 mL
• 1 U.S. quart (dry) = 1.10122 L or 1101.22 mL
• 1 U.K. quart = 1.13652 L or 1136.52 mL
Does that help or are you more confused /img/vbsmilies/smilies/laser.gif??
