## 🆚 Wet vs dry gallons

There are two types of gallons: wet gallons and dry gallons. Wet gallons are used to measure liquids, such as water, gasoline, and milk. One wet US gallon is equal to 128 US fluid ounces.

On the other hand, dry gallons are used to measure dry ingredients, such as grains, fruits, and vegetables. One dry gallon is equal to 231 cubic inches, which is equivalent to ⅛th of a bushel.

Although dry gallons are less commonly used than their liquid counterparts, it’s important to note that a dry gallon is larger in size.

The conversion between dry and wet gallons remains the same, with 4 quarts in a gallon, 2 pints in a quart, and 2 cups in a pint, regardless of the type of ingredient being measured.

## ⚖️ Fluid vs dry ounces

Fluid ounces (fl oz) and dry ounces are both units of measurement for weight or volume, but they are not interchangeable.

Fluid ounces are used for liquids and are a measure of volume, while dry ounces are used for dry ingredients like grains and are a measure of weight.

One fluid ounce of water weighs one ounce, but the weight of a dry ounce can vary depending on the density of the material.

It’s important to use the appropriate unit of measurement for the substance being measured.
