Weight of Water Compared to Weight of GasolineAt a temperature of 20 oC or 68 oF, a (U.S.) gallon of pure water weighs about 8.34 pounds, whereas a gallon of vehicular gasoline weighs about 6.15 pounds at that temperature.
Diesel weighs about 7.1 pounds per gallon.
Though the question is appears to be about weight, it is actually about density, which is weight per unit volume.
The SI-Unit of density is the kilogram per cubic metre, and expressed in those units, the densities are these:
Water: 998 kg/m3
Gasoline: 720 kg/m3
Diesel: 830 kg/m3
You see this when gasoline and water are put into a glass: because they are immiscible and the density of gasoline is lower, it will stay at the top. (Be careful when doing this as gasoline vapor is explosive and toxic!)
In the bathyscaphe Trieste, a research submarine designed to go to the deepest point of the Pacific Ocean, the bathyscaphe was filled with gasoline, which was buoyant in the ocean water. It carried steel shot as ballast to make it sink, and the gasoline provided the "lift", similar to a balloon in the air.

# What temperature is equal to 5c?

C: 273K When you are finding the value of temperatureCelsius in Kelvin, add 278k to the Celsius temperature to obtainthe value of Kelvin.

5c =41f=278k

# What is 6-5c equals -29 equals?

if you mean 6-5c=-29:    c=7

# What is heavier gasoline or water?

Water is "heavier" as the density of water is greater than the density of gasoline thus gasoline will float on water.

41F

# What substance is 7.5 times heavier then water when equal volumes are compared?

An object with a specific gravity (SG) of 7.5 which could be a mixture of something with a SG higher than 7.5 and something with a lower SG.

# What is 5c plus 15 equals 30?

5c + 15= 30   - 15 -15    5c = 15     If your solving for just c.....    5c/5 = 30/5    c= 3   Hope this helps   adding further your

# What is the answer for 5c plus 7 equals 23?

5c+7=23 -7 -7 5c=16 /5 /5 c= 3 & 1/5 or 16/5 thats really easy algebra 1 homework isn't it

# What is the answer for 5c equals -75?

The 'answer' is the number that 'c' must be, if 5c is really the same as -75. In order to find out what number that is, you could use 'algebra'. First, write the equatio

# What is -5c plus d equals 2c?

It is a single equation of direct proportionality. It cannot be solved since that would require two linear equations.
