How much does a 5-gallon water jug filled with pennies weigh?
I filled a 1-gallon jug w/ mixed pocket change a few times and it worked out to be about $ 410 per gallon. I filled one with no pennys and it amounted to $1550 yeah!
My best guess is 40,000 or $40.00. Correction: 40.000 or $400.00.
Because one penny weighs 0.006250lb or .002 Kilograms and the accuracy of the household scale is +/- 100th, then If you are using Kilograms, then Number of pennies +/- …100 = (Weight of your water jug in kilogram) / .002 If you are using pounds Number of pennies +/- 100 = (Weight of your water jug in Pounds) / 0.006250 a fifty pound water jug full of pennies would have (50 / 0.00625 ) = 8000 pennies or $800 a 50 Kilogram water jug full of pennies would have (50 / .002) = 25000 pennies or $2500 All answers are rounded to the nearest dollar.
32,000 (i've done it) $320 and always buying peoples pennies!!
There's no specific answer because coins are different sizes and weights. For example, large dollar coins will not pack as tightly as small dimes, so there will be a l…ot more air spaces in between. Also, the same size coin may have different weights depending on its date - cents minted before 1982 weigh about 25% more than newer pennies because they're made of different metals. So, even though the same number of old pennies or new pennies will fit in the jug, filling it with old coins will make it heavier than if it were filled with new ones.
A pint is a pound, the whole world round. So: 8 pints in a gallon thus 40 pounds (plus the weight of the jug).
What does it weigh? It weighs around 176 pounds about $295. woot woot
Approximately 470-475 LBS
Roughly 8.5 lbs per gallon. You do the Math.
1 pound of quarters is $20. Based on the space used in the jug, the amount of quarters inside can vary, but it should be slightly above 200 lbs. This means that a 5 gallon jug… filled only with quarters should hold over $4,000.
If you divide the volume of the container by the volume of a penny, you get 52,575 pennies, or $525.75. Obviously this is a high estimate considering there will be significant… empty space between coins. I think the best way to estimate this without using thousands of coins would be to scale it down. Measure how many pennies it takes to fill up one cup and multiply that by 80 (16 cups in a gallon times 5 gallons). It still won't be perfect, but much more accurate than 52,575.
Answer: Weight of 1 US Gallon of water = approx. 8.35 lb Weight of 1 imperial gallon (eg UK measure) of water weighs 10 pounds by definition, at a specified tempe…rature and pressure.
