1 gill (gi) = 0.000118294 cubic meter (cu m). Gill (gi) is a unit of Volume used in Standard system. Cubic Meter (cu m) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system.

Gills: A Unit of Volume

Gills 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 Gills

A gill is equal to one fourth of a pint in both the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. It is equivalent to 5 fluid ounces or 142.065 milliliters in the metric system.

History of Gills

The origin of the term gill as a unit of measure is uncertain, but it may have derived from the Old French word gille, which means a measure for wine or beer. Gills have been used since ancient times to store and transport various liquids and dry goods. The size and shape of gills 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 gills as a unit of measure dates back to the medieval times, when the European system of measurement was established. The standard size of these gills was based on the wine gallon, which was originally defined as the volume of eight pounds of wine at 62 °F. The gill was convenient for measuring and dividing smaller amounts of liquids and dry goods.

The use of gills as a unit of measure continued until the 20th century, when the metric system of measurement was adopted in most countries. The gill was gradually replaced by units such as liters, grams, etc. However, some countries and regions still use gills for certain types of liquids and dry goods, especially in the United Kingdom and Ireland and some Commonwealth nations.

How to Convert Gills

To convert gills to other units of volume, one can use the following formulas:

  • To convert UK gills to liters: multiply by 0.142

  • To convert UK gills to cubic inches: multiply by 8.669

  • To convert UK gills to fluid ounces: multiply by 5

  • To convert UK gills to US liquid pints: multiply by 0.118

  • To convert UK gills to BOE: divide by 140

  • To convert US liquid gills to liters: multiply by 0.118

  • To convert US liquid gills to cubic inches: multiply by 7.219

  • To convert US liquid gills to fluid ounces: multiply by 4

  • To convert US liquid gills to UK pints: multiply by 0.211

  • To convert US liquid gills to BOE: divide by 150

Where Gills are Used

Gills are mainly used in some countries and regions that use the imperial system or the US customary system of measurement. They are often used for measuring and adding liquids such as water, milk, oil, wine, etc., and dry goods such as grains, fruits, nuts, etc., to recipes.

In some countries that use the metric system of measurement, such as Canada and Australia, gills are not commonly used or recognized. Instead, they use units such as liters, grams, etc.

Example Conversions of Gills to Other Units

Here are some examples of converting gills to other units of volume:

  • 1 UK gill = 0.142 liters

  • 2 UK gills = 17.338 cubic inches

  • 3 UK gills = 15 fluid ounces

  • 4 UK gills = 0.473 US liquid pints

  • 5 UK gills = 0.036 BOE

  • 1 US liquid gill = 0.118 liters

  • 2 US liquid gills = 14.438 cubic inches

  • 3 US liquid gills = 12 fluid ounces

  • 4 US liquid gills = 0.845 UK pints

  • 5 US liquid gills = 0.033 BOE.

The US gill, defined as 118.29411825 milliliters = 1/32 US liquid gallon.

Cubic Meters - A Unit of Volume

Definition of the Cubic Meter

A cubic meter (symbol m3 or meter cube) is a unit of volume that is used in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as the volume of a cube with sides of 1 meter (3 feet, 36 inches, or 0.9144 meters) in length.

One cubic meter is equal to 1000 liters, 35.3 cubic feet, or 1.3 cubic yards.

History of the Cubic Meter

The cubic meter is derived from the meter, which is the base unit of length in the SI system. The meter was originally defined in 1793 as one ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole along a meridian through Paris. The meter was later redefined several times based on different physical standards, such as a platinum-iridium bar and a wavelength of light. The current definition of the meter, adopted in 1983, is based on the speed of light in vacuum

The cubic meter was first used as a unit of volume for measuring water supply in France in the late 18th century. It was also used for measuring gas, wood, and other substances. The cubic meter was adopted as a standard unit of measure in the SI system in 1960. It is still widely used today for various purposes, such as science, engineering, commerce, and everyday life.

How to Convert Cubic Meters

To convert cubic meters 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 cubic meters to liters, multiply by 1000.
    • Example: 2 m3 x 1000 = 2000 L
  • To convert cubic meters to cubic feet, multiply by 35.3.
    • Example: 2 m3 x 35.3 = 70.6 ft3
  • To convert cubic meters to cubic yards, multiply by 1.3.
    • Example: 2 m3 x 1.3 = 2.6 yd3
  • To convert cubic meters to gallons (US liquid), multiply by 264.
    • Example: 2 m3 x 264 = 528 gal
  • To convert cubic meters to bushels (US), multiply by 28.4.
    • Example: 2 m3 x 28.4 = 56.8 bu
  • To convert cubic meters to barrels (oil), multiply by 6.29.
    • Example: 2 m3 x 6.29 = 12.58 bbl

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

  • To convert liters to cubic meters, divide by 1000.
    • Example: 2000 L / 1000 = 2 m3
  • To convert cubic feet to cubic meters, divide by 35.3.
    • Example: 70.6 ft3 / 35.3 = 2 m3
  • To convert cubic yards to cubic meters, divide by 1.3.
    • Example: 2.6 yd3 / 1.3 = 2 m3
  • To convert gallons (US liquid) to cubic meters, divide by 264.
    • Example: 528 gal / 264 = 2 m3
  • To convert bushels (US) to cubic meters, divide by 28.4.
    • Example: 56.8 bu / 28.4 = 2 m3
  • To convert barrels (oil) to cubic meters, divide by 6.29.
    • Example: 12.58 bbl / 6.29 = 2 m3

Where Cubic Meters are Used

Cubic meters are used for measuring various materials and substances in different countries and applications.

Some examples are:

  • In most countries that use the metric system, cubic meters are used for measuring water supply, gas consumption, wood volume, and other liquids and solids.
  • In some countries that use the imperial system, such as the United Kingdom and Canada, cubic meters are used for measuring natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, and electricity.
  • In the European Union, cubic meters are used for measuring carbon dioxide emissions and energy consumption.
  • In the aviation industry, cubic meters are used for measuring the cargo capacity of aircraft and air freight.
  • In the shipping industry, cubic meters are used for measuring the volume of containers and cargo ships.

Example Conversions of Cubic Meters to Other Units

Here are some example conversions of cubic meters to other units of volume:

  • 1 m3 = 1000 L
