How much salt is in one gallon of ocean or sea water?
The 'average' ocean or sea has a salinity of about 3.5%. Assuming that a gallon of water is roughly 8 pounds, this would be about 4.5 ounces. In metric, about 35 grams per liter.

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… you want. Once you know the density, it is easy to figure out how much a gallon weighs ( 1 m 3 = 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. Sea water in the Atlantic might weigh differently than in the Pacific, and the water in the Dead Sea is much heavier than you might find down at the local beach. . To get an exact answer, you must know the percent composition of the salt water, or the ratio of salt to 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)
Well, 1 pint of water weighs roughly one pound, so 1 gallon would be about 8 pounds. Of course it's a lot easier in SI units, where you can just count by tens. 1 liter weig…hs 1 kg. Done. A gallon of fresh water weighs between 8.33 lbs. and 8.34 lbs. Seawater, on average, weighs 1.028 times more. So, seawater weighs about 8.56 lbs. per gal. Seawater varies in weight depending on the mineral content, so the above is just a suggested avg.
Answer . 100gms. Answer . 100gms. ANSWER . you can never tell how much salt is in a litre of seawater it varies where you are. the average salts is 35ppt (parts per t…housand)
it depends where the salt water is coming from
At 20 o C , 35.89 g NaCl (salt) dissolves in 100 g H 2 O (water) in order to make the solution saturated. I found this information using an online solubility table. 1 gallon …is about 3.78 liters . Also, every liter weighs 1 kilogram. So one gallon of water is 3.78 kilograms or 3,780 grams. . (35.89 g NaCl) / (100 g H 2 O) = (x g NaCl) / (3,780 g H 2 O) x=1,356.642 g 1.356 kg of salt makes one gallon of water saturated.
The average ocean or sea has a salinity of about 3.5%. In metric, about 35 grams per liter.
3.5% (Atlantic Ocean) One gallon is about 8 pounds or 17.6 kg so there is about 600 grams (almost 22 oz.) of salt in the gallon.
I believe it is the amount of a trash can divided by a squirrel then you multiply that by pie.
it depends does it have oil
pure water will dissolve 3.184 pounds of salt.

I don't know, but probably less than 10 or so, I guess.
