It depends on the length of the shower, and the flow of water. Shower heads can usually allow anywhere between 2.5 and 5 gallons of water a minute. Most baths require 30-50 gallons of water.

To save energy the length of the shower x, multiplied by the water flow y, must equal less than the amount of water used in the bath.

X*Y (Minutes/Gallons) < Gallons in Tub

How does a bath use more water then a 5 minute shower?

No and yes it matters how long your in but for me i am in the shower for 5-10 minuets and it uses more then a bath. The reason is that when your in a bath the same water is being used through your cleaning but with a shower it is being filtered the whole time. For me I would recommend using the shower because it is a cleaner way to clean yourself.

Is it more efficent to take a bath or a shower?

It depends how long you are in the shower for. A quick shower is more efficient than a bath. A power shower for a long period ( i.e. 10 mins ) may not be more efficient than a bath, depending uponm how much water it uses.Also, some people share bath water, making it ultimately more efficient than showering.It depends on how long you are in the shower for, if it is just you that has to wash, and whether you have a power shower or not.Generally however, for single persons having a quick wash, they are more efficient. If there is more than 1 person, a bath (all use the same water)If just one then a quick shower. Long showers (20min+) are worse than baths, even for just one person.

Which uses less water taking a bath or taking a shower?

Shower, because you don't need the water below the surface and it is already dirty. It's like sitting in your own used dirty water so you'll be dirty anyways so why use water. If your taking a shower your using clean water and you can turn off the water when you don't need it.
