What would you like to do?
If you had a 5 gallon bucket and a 3 gallon bucket how would you get 4 gallons?
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.

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.

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.
If you have a bucket of water that holds 5 gallons of water and another bucket that holds 3 gallons of waterThe buckets have no markings How can you go to the well and bring back exactly 4 gallons?
Fill up the 3 gallon bucket twice and empty the water into the 5 gallon bucket. This will leave you with 1 gallon in the 3 gallon bucket. Empty the 5 gallon bucket and p…our the 1 gallon of water from the 3 gallon bucket into it. Fill the 3 gallon bucket and empty the water into the 5 gallon bucket. This will give you exactly 4 gallons.
That's going to depend on its shape, and on how deep it is.
I had a five gallon Alhambra bottle full of silver coins only, it equaled $4,698.50
Roughly? And I repeat roughly? Twelve inches wide, fifteen inches deep.
This is a very silly question. This can be a US Gallon, or an Imperial Gallon. The lid can be a screw cap on a tin can or a screw opening on a plastic Jerry can. It might al…so be a fuel can on a boat or a generator. The size of a bucket lid is about the size of the bucket you are talking about. Well, considering most people would specify one of those other things if they really meant them, I'm guessing the "asker" is referring to a standard, everyday 5-gallon bucket. Of course you could have a short and fat bucket or a skinny and tall bucket, but that's not what they asked, was it? It's not a silly question, just a stupid answer. I think what you're looking for are the dimensions of the bucket. The top of a standard bucket is around 11.9" in diameter, which means about 37.4" in circumference. The lid must fit on that, so you can make calculations as such. Sound good?
Volume is the measure of space. A 5 gallon bucket is roughly 1152 cubic inches.
That completely depends on what substance you have in the bucket, and how full it is. If the substance is water and the bucket is full to the rim, then it contains 41.73 pou…nds of water. Other substances will have different weights. If the bucket is empty, then its volume is still 5 gallons, but its weight is virtually zero, not including the weight of the empty bucket of course.
1 Liter of water weighs 1 Kg. 5 gallons of water is 18.93 Liters, so 18.93 Kg for the water. I have no idea the mass of the bucket.
Fill the 1 gallon bucket and ignore the other.
