Best Answer

A standard barrel (Drum) is 55 gallons, therefore if the barrel is full of water it would weigh 440 pounds. An oil barrel is smaller and holds only 40 gallons and weigh apx 280 lbs as petroleum is lighter than water

The barrel itself weighs 20 pounds. 10 gallons of water, therefore, weights 103.4 minus the weight of the barrel itself. 103.4-20 = 83.4 20 is twice as much as ten, so 83.4 * 2 = 166.8 pounds. If we add the barrel back in, we have a total weight of 166.8 + 20 = 186.8
