Fill the 3 gal pail and pour into the 5 gal pail. Refill the 3 gal pail and pour two gallons of it into the 5 gallon pail - filling the 5 gallon pail and leaving 1 gallon in the 3 gallon pail. Dump out the 5 gallon pail and pour the remaining 1 gallon from the 3 gallon pail into the 5 gallon pail. Fill the 3 gallon pail one more time and pour that into the 5 gallon pail with the 1 gallon already in it and you have 4 gallons.

8 lbs should fit in a gallon pail so a 10 gallon pail will hold 80 lbs. So, yeah it should hold. hope that helps.

Kilogram is a unit of mass, not of weight. That would be the approximate mass of a pail of water.

It is not possible to answer this question. There is no such measure as a "pund". The mass of the pail depends on what material it is made of. The mass of its contents - if it has any - depends on the substance in the pail. A pail full of water will have much less mass than one full of earth (dirt).

You first dump the 5-gallon pail, then fill the 5-gallon pail from the water from the 8-gallon pail. Then you dump the 5-gallon pail again, and you are left with 2 gallons in the 8-gallon pail.

There are approximately 0.67 cubic feet in a 5-gallon pail.

Easy. Fill the 7gal pail to the full mark (7 Gallons) with water. Then pour, from the 7 gallon pail, water into each of the 3 gallon pail up to the full mark. The remaining water left in the 7 gallon is 1 gallon. Pour this gallon into the aquarium. Fill the 7 gallon pail with water, again to the full mark, and then add to the aquarium. 1 Gallon + 7 Gallons = 8 Gallons.

The weight of a 3-gallon pail depends on its contents. The weight of water would be approximately 27 kg, as 1 gallon of water weighs about 3.78 kg. However, if the pail contains a different substance, the weight will vary.

A pail is not a standard measure. It can have different capacities.

Pails come in various sizes, so a pail is not a standard unit of measurement, however, if you know how large your pail is, you could use it to measure volume.

Depends on the pail, many are different sizes.

The weight of a pail of water will depend on the volume of water it can hold. On average, water weighs about 8.34 pounds per gallon, so you can calculate the weight of the water by measuring the volume of water in the pail and multiplying it by the weight per gallon.
