Forum rules
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.

It takes one BTU to raise one pound of water by one degree...how many gallons of water are in one pound of water?

One gallon of fresh water at sea level with a temperature of 72┬║ F weighs 8.3452641 pounds. The reciprocal of 8.3452641 is 0.119828443 so; 1 pound of water = 0.119828443 gallons, probably with way more precision than you need.
