5 gallons of liquid does indeed occupy a volume of 0.67 cubic feet (5 gallons divided by 7.48 gallons per cubic foot), but a "5-gallon" bucket actually holds a bit more than 5… gallons. Take your bucket and a 1-gallon jug, fill the bucket with water a gallon at a time, and mark the side of the bucket at each 1 gallon interval. You will discover that the 5 gallon mark ends up about 1.75 inches from the top of the bucket. Therefore a full bucket really holds somewhere in the neighborhood of 5.75 gallons (+/- a few ounces, depending on bucket manufacturer). This "extra" space in the bucket is there for practical reasons, as well as for safety--imagine the mess potential in opening a bucket of paint that is full to the very tip-top. So if you are filling your bucket to the top, you are really dealing with a volume of about 0.77 cubic feet.
you fill the 3 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket twice 2 *3 6 gallons but the 5 gallon will only overflow once it hits 5 gallons. You get the 1 gallon half in the 3… gallon bucket and dump the water out of the 5 gallon bucket. You pour the 1 gallon left from the 3 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket and then refill the 3 gallon bucket and put the 3 gallons in making 4 gallons.
If I have a bucket of water that holds 4 gallons of water and another bucket that holds 7 gallons of water. The buckets have no markings. How can I go to the well and bring back exactly 5 gallons?
Fill the 4 gal bucket and empty it into the 7 gal bucket.. Fill the 4 gal bucket and then fill the 7 gal bucket from the 4 gal.. This leaves 1 Gallon in the 4 gallon bucket.…. Empty the 7 gallon bucket and pour the gallon from the 4 gal lbucket into it.. Fill the 4 gal bucket and pour it into the 7 gal bucket.. You then have 5 gallons in the 7 gallon bucket.

Start with empty buckets, and carry them to the well. # (Note that the larger is the 7-gallon bucket, and the smaller is the 4-gallon bucket.) # Fill the 4-gallon bucket w…ith water to the top. # Empty all the water from the 4-gallon bucket into the 7-gallon bucket. # (Note that there is room in the 7-gallon bucket for exactly 3 more gallons.) # Fill the 4-gallon bucket again. # Pour from the 4-gallon bucket into the 7-gallon bucket all the water that will fit, spilling none. # (Note that since there was room for only 3 more gallons in the 7-gallon bucket, you now have 1 gallon left in the 4-gallon bucket.) # Dump out all the water from the 7-gallon bucket. (Pour it back into the well or onto some flowers so it's not wasted.) # Pour the 1 gallon of water that remains in the 4-gallon bucket into the empty 7-gallon bucket. # Refill the 4-gallon bucket completely. # Pour all the 4 gallons from the 4-gallon bucket into the 7-gallon bucket. # (Note that since the 7-gallon bucket had 1 gallon already and you added 4 gallons, you now have 5 gallons of water in the 7-gallon bucket!) # Bring back your 7-gallon bucket that's holding exactly 5 gallons of water. (Bring your 4-gallon bucket back too, in case you want to play again!)
I'd say 12 inches. it's a guestimate but I'm sure I am pretty close.

fill the 7 gallon bucket, dump it into the 5 gallon bucket and save the remaining 2 gallons, repeat and you have 4 gallons.
Firstly fill up the 7 gallon bucket, then pour the contents into the empty 5 gallon bucket until it is full. This will leave 2 gallons in the 7 gallon bucket. Empty the 5 gall…on bucket, then pour the remaining 2 gallons of the 7 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket. Fill up the 7 gallon bucket again. Top up the 5 gallon bucket, this will leave 4 gallons in the 7 gallon bucket. Empty the 5 gallon bucket again. Pour the 4 remaining gallons from the 7 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket. Fill the 7 gallon bucket again then top up the 5 gallon bucket. This will leave 6 gallons in the 7 gallon bucket.
Roughly? And I repeat roughly? Twelve inches wide, fifteen inches deep.
There is about four gallons of water in an average bucket of water.
15.14 liters in 4 gallons (4*3.785 liters per gallon)
That's going to depend on its shape, and on how deep it is.
Fill the 1 gallon bucket and ignore the other.
