###### Asked in Cooking Measurements, Volume

### 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.
In UK, a cup is half of an Imperial pint. I cannot find a
'metric cup' defined anywhere with authority, and your amounts
specified above make it...

### What is 375 degrees Fahrenheit in Celsius?

375 degrees Fahrenheit is about 190.56 degrees Celsius.
Temperature is easy to convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius yourself.
You can use the formula Tc = (5/9)*(Tf-32) where Tc = temperature
in degrees Celsius, Tf = temperature in degrees Fahrenheit. 375 F
is 191 C.
375°F = 190.6°C (375°F - 32) multiplied by 5/9 =

375 degree Fahrenheit = 190.5555556 degree Celsius.

###### Asked in Units of Measure, Cooking Measurements

### How many ounces are in 1 cup?

In the US, 1 cup = 8 fluid ounces (*not identical to the

ounces, but there is also a dry measure using the term cup,
equal to 8 ounces.
The UK cup is equal to 10 Imperial ounces, which are equal to
0.96 US ounces, because they are based on the avoirdupois (weight)
ounce.
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 -

ounces.

you're supposed to be using!
To know the weight of a certain volume you need to know the
specific gravity of the fluid. In other words: the weight...

the average height today is just below 5'8". It's hard to tell the
overall average 100 years ago but honestly, it wouldn't surprise me
if the average was around 5'5" give or take. In the US, the average
height 100 years ago was about 5'6"-5'7" (that is if counting all
