I don't' know, but if you have a bottle (doesn't matter what size), put the bottle in a tub of water. Assuming all air space is removed: If it barely floats, a gallon weighs very nearly 8 pounds. If it really floats, it weighs less than 8 pounds. If the bottle sinks slooowly... still around 8 pounds.... get the picture?

If it sinks really fast, well, a gallon of it weighs more than 8 pounds.

Hope this helps... it's all I got 'cause I'm out of the tanny fun putty.

The 1-lb bottles are about a pint, so I'd say that a gallon should weigh right at 8 lbs.

Bulk density is anywhere from 49 to 70 pounds per cubic foot. Since a gallon is 231 cubic inches and a cubic foot is 1728 cubic inches, simple math means between 6.5 pounds and 9.4 pounds. Packing factor of the prill depends on the prill size, finer being denser. Since Tannerite is a fine prill, estimate about 9 pounds per gallon.

The important question is:

How much does 55 gallons weigh?

About 17 bottle will fill a 1 gallon milk jug. So that is about 8.5 pounds(each target weighs .5 lbs)


The Wa crew did 5 gallons this past weekend. WOW is all I have to say about it!!!!!!!!!

The density of water varies greatly with temperature from melting to boiling, which is why engineers dislike making precise calculations using water. In most engineering classes, water is assumed to be 8.3 pounds per gallon. For rough work "pint a pound" or "8 pounds to a gallon" suffices.
