Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

If it is a liquid you need to find out how much volume 120 grams is in Milliliters. Then divide 120 by the volume you get. This will give you specific gravity. (Sp. Gravity is the comparison of any liquid to water). Take that number multiply it by 8.35 (the weight in pounds of a gallon of water). The number you get is the density of the water expressed in lbs. per gallons.

SO...say your 120 grams of liquid is 125 milliliters. 120/125 = 0.96
0.96 * 8.35 = 8.016 lbs/gallons.
