how much does a gallon of whole milk weigh?

  • I would go to a grocery store and get a gallon of whole milk and take it up to the produce dept. and put it in one of the scales and weigh it. 🙂 Because I really have no idea , but thats what I would do.

  • Quote from government website:

    “a gallon of milk weighs about 8 pounds”

    Obviously it is assumed that whole milk is the milk used.

  • Slightly LESS than a gallon of water, despite the dissolved solids. Whole milk also contains about 4% butterfat, which is less dense than water (it floats to the top) and so it weighs less than water does. Milk is the most useless liquid for a standard, because it goes bad. You can’t keep a standard container of milk around for long. Use water as a standard.

    I think milk is a little heavier because there are solids disolved in it so my guess is around 9#/gal.
