 # Know What is Pint and Learn 3 Ways How to Convert Pints

Pint is a common term in volume measurement. In this blog, we will share complete knowledge about pints and help you to understand ways how to convert pints into other volume units.

## What is a Pint?

A pint is a unit of measurement for Volume/capacity. The pint is prominently used in the United States and in some of the Common Wealth and Caribbean countries. It is half of a quarter of a gallon i.e 1/8 of a gallon.

## How many types of pints?

There are three types of pints that we usually use.

US liquid pint

This unit is used in the United States and some Latin American countries. Since the US gallon is the volume occupied by a cylinder which is 7 inches in dia and 6 inches in depth which is 231 cubic inches considering pie 22/7. The US pint is 1/8th of a gallon so 1 pint = 28.875 cubic inches.

Imperial pint

This volume measurement is a unit in use or was used in some Common Wealth counties such as the United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, and some Caribbean countries. One Imperial gallon comes to 277.419 cubic inches. The Imperial pint is 1/8th of a gallon so 1 pint = 34.677 cubic inches.

US dry pint

This is used in the United States and some Latin American countries. It is 1/8th of a US dry gallon which is 1/8th of a cylinder with 18 and a half inches dia and 8 inches depth. The volume of a US dry gallon comes to be 268.8025 cubic inches and of a pint is 33.6 cubic inches.

1 US dry gallon is = 268.8025 cubic inches, 1 US dry pints = 33.6 cubic inches

#### Know How to convert Pints to Cubic feet

12 inches = 1 foot

1 cubic inch = 1/12 X 1/12 X 1/12 cubic feet

1 US liquid pint = 231 X 1/12 X 1/12 X 1/12 X 1/8 cubic feet

1 US liquid pint = 0.0167 cubic feet

1 Imperial pint = 277.4195 X 1/12 X 1/12 X 1/12 X 1/8 cubic feet

1 Imperial pint = 0.0201 cubic feet

1 US dry pint = 268.8025 X 1/12 X 1/12 X 1/12 X 1/8 cubic feet

1 US dry pint = 0.0194 cubic feet

#### Know How to convert Pints to Cubic Meters

1 inch = 25.4 millimeter , 1000 millimeter = 1 meter , then 1 inch = 0.0254 meter

1 cubic inch = 0.0254 X 0.0254 X 0.0254 cubic meter

1 US liquid pint = 28.875 cubic inches = 28.875 X 0.0254 X 0.0254 X 0.0254 cubic meter

1 US liquid pint = 0.0004732 cubic meter

1 Imperia pint = 34.677 cubic inches = 34.677 X 0.0254 X 0.0254 X 0.0254 cubic meter

1 Imperial pint = 0.0005683 cubic meter

1 US dry pint = 33.6 cubic inches = 33.6 X 0.0254 X 0.0254 X 0.0254 cubic meter

1 US dry pint = 0.0005506 cubic meter

#### How to convert pints to Liter

1 cubic meter = 1000 liter

1 US liquid pint = 28.875 X 0.0254 X 0.0254 X 0.0254 X 1000 liter

1 US liquid pint = 0.473 liter

1 Imperial pint = 34.677 X 0.0254 X 0.0254 X 0.0254 X 1000 liter

1 Imperial pint = 0.568 liter

1 US dry pint = 33.6 X 0.0254 X 0.0254 X 0.0254 X 1000 liter

1 US dry pint = 0.551 liter

#### How to convert Pints to Gallon

1 pint = 1 / 8 gallon, 0.125 gallon

The pint can either be a US pint or an imperial pint.

#### How to convert Pints to Quarts
