Gallons: A Unit of Volume

Gallons are a unit of volume that are used to measure liquids, such as water, milk, oil, wine, etc. They are also used to measure some dry goods, such as grains, fruits, nuts, etc. They are different from cups, which are a smaller unit of volume. They are also different from liters, which are a larger unit of volume. They are also different from barrel of oil equivalent (BOE), which is a unit of energy based on the approximate energy released by burning one barrel of crude oil.

Definition of Gallons

A gallon is defined as a unit of liquid capacity in both the US customary and imperial systems of measurement. However, the size of a gallon varies depending on the type of gallon used:

  • A US liquid gallon is equal to 3.785 liters or 0.833 UK gallons in the metric system. It is equivalent to 231 cubic inches or 128 fluid ounces in the US customary system.
  • A US dry gallon is equal to 4.405 liters or 0.969 UK gallons in the metric system. It is equivalent to 268.8 cubic inches or 148.9 fluid ounces in the US customary system.
  • A UK gallon is equal to 4.546 liters or 1.2 US liquid gallons in the metric system. It is equivalent to 277.4 cubic inches or 160 fluid ounces in the imperial system.

History of Gallons

The origin of the term gallon as a unit of measure is uncertain, but it may have derived from the Old French word galon, which means a large liquid measure. Gallons have been used since ancient times to store and transport various liquids and dry goods. The size and shape of gallons varied depending on the type and quantity of the goods, the availability of materials, and the customs of different regions and countries.

The use of gallons as a unit of measure dates back to the medieval times, when the European system of measurement was established. The standard size of these gallons was based on the wine gallon, which was originally defined as the volume of eight pounds of wine at 62 °F. The gallon was convenient for measuring and dividing larger amounts of liquids and dry goods.

The use of gallons as a unit of measure continued until the 20th century, when the metric system of measurement was adopted in most countries. The gallon was gradually replaced by units such as liters, kilograms, etc. However, some countries and regions still use gallons for certain types of liquids and dry goods, especially in the United States and the United Kingdom and its former colonies.

Liquid Barrels - A Unit of Volume

Definition of the Liquid Barrel

A liquid barrel (symbol bbl or bl) is a unit of volume that corresponds to the volume of a cylindrical container with a standard size and shape. The exact definition of a liquid barrel varies depending on what is being measured and where. In general, a liquid barrel is equivalent to 31.5 US gallons (26 imperial gallons or 119 liters) or half a hogshead. However, there are different types of liquid barrels for different liquids, such as oil, beer, wine, and water.

One liquid barrel is equal to 0.119 cubic meters, 7276.5 cubic inches, or 0.0298 cubic yards.

History of the Liquid Barrel

The liquid barrel is derived from the barrel, which is a wooden container that was used for storing and transporting various goods since ancient times. The barrel was originally made from wooden staves held together by metal hoops, and had a standard size and shape that varied by region and product. The word barrel comes from the Latin barra, meaning bar or rod.

The liquid barrel was first used as a unit of volume for measuring liquids, such as wine, beer, oil, water, and vinegar. The liquid barrel was also used for measuring some solids, such as salt, flour, and fish. The liquid barrel was adopted as a standard unit of measure in many countries that use the imperial system or the US customary system, such as the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, and Australia.

How to Convert Liquid Barrels

To convert liquid barrels to other units of volume, you need to multiply or divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:

  • To convert liquid barrels to cubic meters, multiply by 0.119.
    • Example: 2 bbl × 0.119 = 0.238 m3
  • To convert liquid barrels to cubic inches, multiply by 7276.5.
    • Example: 2 bbl × 7276.5 = 14553 in3
  • To convert liquid barrels to milliliters or liters, multiply by 119000 or 119 respectively.
    • Example: 2 bbl × 119000 = 238000 mL or 2 bbl × 119 = 238 L
  • To convert liquid barrels to gallons (US liquid), multiply by 31.5.
    • Example: 2 bbl × 31.5 = 63 gal
  • To convert liquid barrels to bushels (US), multiply by 3.705.
    • Example: 2 bbl × 3.705 = 7.41 bu
  • To convert liquid barrels to kiloliters, multiply by 0.119.
    • Example: 2 bbl × 0.119 = 0.238 kL

To convert other units of volume to liquid barrels, you need to divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:

  • To convert cubic meters to liquid barrels, divide by 0.119.
    • Example: 0.238 m3 ÷ 0.119 = 2 bbl
  • To convert cubic inches to liquid barrels, divide by 7276.5.
    • Example: 14553 in3 ÷ 7276.5 = 2 bbl
  • To convert milliliters or liters to liquid barrels, divide by 119000 or 119 respectively.
    • Example: 238000 mL ÷ 119000 = 2 bbl or 238 L ÷ 119 = 2 bbl
  • To convert gallons (US liquid) to liquid barrels, divide by 31.5.
    • Example: 63 gal ÷ 31.5 = 2 bbl
  • To convert bushels (US) to liquid barrels, divide by 3.705.
    • Example: 7.41 bu ÷ 3.705 = 2 bbl
  • To convert kiloliters to liquid barrels, divide by 0.119.
    • Example: 0.238 kL ÷ 0.119 = 2 bbl

Where Liquid Barrels are Used

The standard oil barrel is defined as 42 US gallons (35 imperial gallons or 159 liters). However, there are different types of oil barrels for different grades of oil, such as the West Texas Intermediate (WTI) barrel and the Brent Crude barrel.
  • In the brewing industry, liquid barrels are used for measuring the volume of beer. The standard beer barrel is defined as 31 US gallons (26 imperial gallons or 117 liters). However, there are different types of beer barrels for different types of beer, such as the ale barrel and the lager barrel.
  • In the wine industry, liquid barrels are used for measuring the volume of wine. The standard wine barrel is defined as 31.5 US gallons (26 imperial gallons or 119 liters). However, there are different types of wine barrels for different types of wine, such as the Bordeaux barrel and the Burgundy barrel.
  • In some countries that use the metric system, liquid barrels are used for measuring the volume of water. The standard water barrel is defined as 100 liters or 0.1 cubic meters. However, there are different types of water barrels for different purposes, such as the rain barrel and the fire barrel.

Example Conversions of Liquid Barrels to Other Units

Here are some example conversions of liquid barrels to other units of volume:

  • 1 bbl = 0.119 m3
