# How much does one gallon of salt water weigh?

Weight of a Gallon of Salt Water See the web links below this answer for an automatic calculator that will give you the density of water at whatever temperature and salinity y…ou want. Once you know the density, it is easy to figure out how much a gallon weighs ( 1 m3 = 264.17 gallons, and 1 kg = 2.2046 lbs, and 1 gallon = 3.7854 liters) Here are opinions and answers from FAQ Farmers: This depends on the amount of salt dissolved in the water.

Roughly, salt water weighs 64 lbs/cu. ft., as opposed to fresh water, which is about 62.2 lbs/cu. ft. There are 7.4805 gallons in a cubic foot. So a gallon of salt water weighs 8.556 lbs."A pint's a pound, the world around." That's a common expression. A pint is 16 fluid ounces and 16 fluid ounces of water weighs approximately 16 dry ounces. Two pints to the quart, four quarts to the gallon means eight pints to the gallon, so a gallon weighs about eight pounds. But that only applies to FRESH water. Salt water has a whole range, depending on how much salt is dissolved in the water. So you'd have to add the weight of the dissolved salt. Ans 5 - An Imperial Gallon of salt water weighs approximately 10.2 pounds, depending on where it's from. -(seas and oceans vary in density)
