What is capacity? Capacity is the amount a 3-dimensional object can hold or carry. It can also be thought of the measure of volume of a 3-dimensional object. How to determine capacity: The common measures of volume in the U.S. system of measurements are: tablespoons = 3 teaspoons fluid ounces = 2 tablespoons, 6 teaspoons cups = 8 fluid ounces, 16 tablespoons pints = 2 cups, 16 fluid ounces quarts = 2 pints, 4 cups gallons = 4 quarts, 8 pints, 16 cups Convert gallons to pints by multiplying the number of gallons by 8. Convert quarts to pints by multiplying the number of quarts by 2. Add the above quantities and the number of original pints together. Perform the required multiplication to determine the number of pints. Convert the pints to gallons by dividing by 8. The quotient is the number of gallons and the remainder is the number of extra pints. Convert the extra pints to quarts by dividing the extra pints by 2. The quotient is the number of quarts and the remainder is the number of pints. Example: Convert the following: 1 gallon = ______ pints 1 gallon = 8 pints Try this! Convert the following: 1 quart = ______ gallons Convert the following: 3 gallons = ______ cups © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
