# MEASUREMENT CONVERSIONS: GALLONS THROUGH OUNCES

## INTRODUCTION

People do not realize that most countries use The Metric System as their measurement tool. This causes a problem with communication between the U.S. and other countries because the U.S. uses The Standard American Engineering System. With the use of facts like 1 ounce = 28.35 grams, all countries can communicate about ideas like recipes or innovative projects that could change the world.

## THE MOST IMPORTANT CONVERSION

Using this conversion fact and the “Giant G” drawing, you can calculate any amount inside these conversions.

## UNIT CONVERTER

Using Google to convert your measurements is a great tool, but it does not help you understand!

Use this tool first and then use Google to check your answers.

## UNITS & SYSTEMS: WHY ARE THESE IMPORTANT?

• Gallons, Quarts, Pints, Cups, and Ounces are used in the The Standard or Standard American Engineering (SAE) System.
• Grams are used in The Metric System.
• Depending on where you are working or who you are working with, it is extremely important to convert these units.

## A QUICK EXAMPLE AND VIDEO WITH MORE EXAMPLES

One of the easiest ways to convert between gallons, quarts, pints, cups, and ounces is to use the conversion ratio. The conversion ratio keeps the units and weights organized and the conversion ratio method can be used in ANY conversion.
