Facts:

120 drops = 5mL

1 gallon = 3785 mL

* 90840 Drops in 1 Gallon

If a faucet dripped once a second how many gallons of water would it waste?

It would waste 347 Gallons of water a year!

Facts:

1 year ~ 31,536,000 seconds

24 drops in 1 mL

1 gallon/3785 mL X (1 mL/24 drops) X (1 drop/ 1 s) X (31,536,000 s/ 1 year) = 347.1598415 gallons / year

According to the U.S.G.S. the average size of water droplet from a bathroom or kitchen faucet is about 1/4 of a milliliter (or CC), or 4,000 drops per liter; and about 0.0169 fl oz or 15,140 drops per gallon.

Some science measurements from droppers measure a drop much smaller, at 1/20th of a CC per drop, making the number of drops per gallon much higher.

20 drops/CC X 30 CC/fl oz X 128 fl oz/Gal = 76800drops/gal

In the end, it depends on the size of the drop as to how many drops there are in a gallon. For household leaks, 3-4 drops/CC is much more likely than 20-24 drops/CC that is often cited for scientific purposes.

60620 drops of water since 10 oz glass resist 4736 drops 1 gallon resist 12.8 galon of 10 oz glasses of water so no of drops of water in a gallon = 4736* 12.8 = 60620.8 drops

An US gallon has 3,485411784 L; multiply with your value to obtain the total volume. Aassuming that a drop has 0,000 060 L divide the total volume with the volume of a drop and you will obtain the answer.


1 million drops of water equals what volume?

Answer about 13 gallons depending on your assumptions of how many drops per gallon.Several methods to figure this out:1 million drops of water is 1666.667 fluid oz. There are 600 drops per fluid oz and 1,000,000 divided by 600 is 1666.667(last digit is rounded)1666.667 oz if about 13 U.S. gallons or if you prefer metric it is49.289 litersMethod 290840 Drops in 1 Gallon ( but that value depends on water temp and other factors)90840 Drops/1 gallon=1,000,000 drops/x gallons90840x=1,000,000x=11.0084 gallonsSo this method gives 11 gallons and if we want to know how many cubic inches that we note that:1 gallon of water is 231 cubic inches. So 11.0084x231=2542 cubic inches.______I found another professor give this example:http://jwilson.coe.uga.edu/emt668/EMAT6680.Folders/Howard/Million.Drops.of.Water/Million.Drops.of.Water.html10 drops of water = 1 milliliter and: 10,000 drops = 1 Liter then: 1,000,000 drops = 100 Liters and my reference quoted that: 1 Gallon = 3.5 Liters, so 1,000,000 drops of water = 28.5714 gallonsMethod 3The example above 10 drops per ml, and of course you can easily imagine that the size of a drop of water will not be uniform. It depends on temperature and the dropper and many other factors.Most people use 15-20 gtts( drops) per ml, usually 20.So the slightly larger value in this result comes from the fact that the drops are much bigger, 10 per ml instead of 20. Divide 28.574 by 2 and the you have 14.2 gallons. Also 1 US gallon = 3.78541178 liters so using 3.5 is a low estimate.So here is the same calculation as above using different assumptions. The example below uses 3.785 liters per gallon and 20 drops per ml.20 drops of water= 1 milliliter20,000 drops = 1 liter1 gallon is 3.785 liters.so(20,000 drops/1 liter)(3.785 liter/1 gallon)=75,700 drops/gallon(compare this to 90840 used in the first part above)75,700 drops/gallon=1,000,000 drops/X gallons.Solve for x75,700X=1,000,000and the answer is 100, 000 drops is 13.21 gallons
