Quarts: A Unit of Volume

Quarts 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. Quarts are also different from gallons, which are a larger unit of volume. Quarts 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 Quarts

A quart is defined as a quarter of a gallon in the US customary system and the British imperial system of measurement. However, the size of a quart varies depending on the type of gallon used:

  • A liquid quart is equal to 0.946 liters or 0.208 gallons in the US customary system. It is equivalent to 32 fluid ounces or 4 cups in the US customary system.
  • A dry quart is equal to 1.101 liters or 0.227 gallons in the US customary system. It is equivalent to 37.24 cubic inches or 67.2 tablespoons in the US customary system.
  • An imperial quart is equal to 1.136 liters or 0.25 gallons in the British imperial system. It is equivalent to 40 fluid ounces or 4 imperial cups in the British imperial system.

History of Quarts

The origin of the term quart as a unit of measure is uncertain, but it may have derived from the Latin word quartus, which means fourth.

The quart was convenient for measuring and dividing smaller amounts of liquids and dry goods.

The use of quarts as a unit of measure continued until the 20th century, when the metric system of measurement was adopted in most countries. The quart was gradually replaced by units such as liters, kilograms, etc. However, some countries and regions still use quarts for certain types of liquids and dry goods, especially in cooking and baking.
