How many cups are in a gallon?
1 US gallon = 16 US Cups (exact) = 15.14 Metric cups 1 Imperial Gallon = 19.215 US cups = 18.18 Metric cups Ans 2 I would agree totally on your US measurement, but in the rest of the world, a 'cup' is a nebulous amount and I think depends on which country you are in.

What is 375 degrees Fahrenheit in Celsius?

How many ounces are in 1 cup?
In the US, 1 cup = 8 fluid ounces (*not identical to the avoirdupois ounce which is weight) In the US, one standard measuring cup contains 8 fluid ounces, but there is also a dry measure using the term cup, equal to 8 ounces.

This standard - as with standard spoon measurements - varies from country to country. As...
How many ounces make a gallon?
In a US gallon... 128 ounces Both US gallons and "Imperial" (UK) gallons contain 8 pints - but the US pint is 16 fluid ounces while the Imperial pint is 20 fluid ounces.

What was the average height of a man 100 years ago?
Average height world wide or in a specific country? Worldwide the average height today is just below 5'8".

How many grams are in a tablespoon?
It depends on what you're measuring. What's the tablespoon holding? Butter or oregano? Sugar or salt? Molten lead or feathers? Grams are a unit of mass (or weight) and a tablespoon is a unit of volume. Therefore it depends entirely on what you are measuring -- it depends on the density of the substance. A tablespoon of lead will be much heavier than a tablespoon of feathers (although a gram of lead and a gram of feathers weigh exactly the same!). Similarly, a...
