One gallon of water weighs 8 pounds. There are four quarts in a gallon. Eight divided by four = two; therefore, one quart weighs 2 pounds. Or not, math is not my forte.

or more like 2.08 for weight of each quart

you have not specified the liquid. UK quart of water weighs
about 2.5 pounds (1.14 Kg). US quart of water weighs about
2.09 pounds (0.95 Kg). The weight of other liquids will be
different.

### How can you convert quarts to pounds?

A quart is a measure of volume and a pound is a measure of
weight, normally one would not therefore be able to equate the
two.
However if one assumes that the quart volume comprises water,
then one can equate that volume of water with the weight of the
water (in pounds).
A quart is 2 pints, which is 1.25 liters
as the density of water = 1.0 then 1.25 liters will weigh 1.25
Kg, which is =2.7557782773125 pounds.
Obviously a quart of anything with a different density would
need recalculation.
