It is 7.83 gallons per inch. .785x4x4x1=12.56 cubic feet. 12.56 cubic feet x 7.48 gallons per cubic foot=93.9 gallons per foot 93.9 gallons per foot / 12 inches per foot =7.83 gallons per inch.

### How much pressure does a gallon of water produce?

There is no answer to this as asked.
It would depend. If you had a gallon of water in 2 cylinders,
one had a diameter of 3 inches and the other had a diameter of 6
inches. The water pressure at the bottom of the 3 inch cylinder
would be greater than the bottom of the 6 inch.
More appropriately - it depends how tall you made the gallon of
water. Water exerts 0.43 PSI per foot of depth - so, if the
cylinder of water was a foot tall, the pressure would be 0.43 PSI
at the bottom of the cylinder

### How many gallons of water in a half inch pipe that is 25 feet long?

Assuming this pipe is straight, it is a cylinder. The area of a
cylinder is pi*r*r*depth.
The depth is 25 feet.
25 feet is 300 inches.
The diameter is 1/2 inch, making the radius 1/4 inch.
pi*1/4*1/4*300
pi*1/16*300
pi*18.75
58.9048623
1 gallon is 231 cubic inches, so
58.9048623 / 231
0.254999404 gallons.

### How many gallons of water will it take to fill a 12 inch diameter cylinder 10 feet long?

To answer this question, you can calculate the volume of the
cylinder in cubic inches, then use the fact that a gallon is 231
cubic inches to convert to gallons. Cylinder volume is the cylinder
base area (the circle that is 12 inches in diameter) times the
height. Cylinder base area: 12 inch diameter, using pi x r2 =
3.14159 x 62 = 113 in2. Cylinder volume: 113 in2 x 10 ft x 12 in/ft
= 13560 in3. Conversion to gallons: 13560 in3 (divided by) 231
in3/gallon = 58.7 gallons.
