Best Answer

It all depends upon the shape of the container that it is in. For example, if the water weighs 8 lbs per gallon, then the water at the bottom of a container that is a vertical pipe with cross sectional area of 1 square inch will exert a pressure of 8 psi. However, if the water is in a vertical pipe with cross sectional area of 8 square inches, then the pressure at the bottom of the pipe will be only 1 psi.

That depends on the surface area over which the weight of the gallon of water is distributed.

If the gallon of water is in a typical plastic jug that you buy at the grocery store, it's not creating much pressure at all -- only about 2.2 ounces per square inch.
