# How many drops of oil does it take to pollute a gallon of water?

# How many water drops in a gallon?

Depends on the size of each drop.

# How many drops of water are in a gallon?

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 = 76800 drops/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.

# How many drops of water in one gallon?

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

# How many drops of oil in a gallon?

Its like asking how many pigs in one ton. The number will depend on the density of , surface tension, size, shape, and flow rate of the liquid. 1 mL is +/- twenty drops …of H2O..

# How many drops of oil in one gallon?

1 gallon (US) is about 75,708 (75708.23568) drops.

# How many gallons of water does it take to kill you?

A few tablespoons is enough to drown you, but you could not possibly drink a 'fatal dose' of water. Your stomach would not hold it.

# Who many drop of water are there in one gallon of water?

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.
= 6062…0.8 drops

# How many gallons of water is polluted every year?

285 million gallons of water is polluted every year 285 million gallons of water is polluted every year and also three whole sea is also polluted in one century

# How many drops in a gallon of oil?

The number of drops would depend on which oil. Do the experiment yourself. Get a dropper, a quantity of oil, a cup measure. Fill the cup using the dropper. Count the drops as… you go. Multiply your answer by 16. That's your answer. You could only fill half the cup measure and multiply the number of drops by 32. Do your experiment three times and get the average of your answers.

# How many gallons of heating oil does it take to heat one gallon of water?

That's going to depend on . . . -- the starting temperature of the water -- the target temperature of the water -- how fast you want it to get there -- the efficiency… of the heater you use

# How many gallons of water will a quart of oil pollute?

In general, oil will float on the water surface. That is, it will spread out in a layer on the top of the water. This is because oil is less dense than water, and is immiscibl…e with it (meaning it doesn't mix with the water). So if you think about it, the question is ambiguous. The answer does not depend on the volume of water (e.g. "gallons") but rather on the surface area (e.g. square feet, sq miles, etc). For example you could have a very deep lake that contains many hundreds of thousands of gallons of water, but if the perimeter of the lake is very small, the oil may cover the entire lake. Conversely, a puddle in a parking lot may be only an inch deep, but if the puddle extends across the entire parking lot, it may contain relatively few gallons of water, but the oil may only cover a small fraction of it if the size of the puddle is very very large. So the quest really is, how THICK will a layer of oil be if it spreads out on the water surface. Knowing this, you can calculate the amount of surface AREA that a quart of oil will spread out over. I like to do my calculations in metric, but I'll convert back into English units for the result. Assume that the oil makes a 1 mm film over the surface. (About 1/25th inch) Some conversions: 1 mm = 0.1 cm 1 quart = 946 mL = 946 cm 3 The area the oil would take up is the volume divided by the thickness: A = 946 cm 3 /0.1 cm = 9460 cm 2 So that's your estimated answer, but now let's convert it into something more meaningful. 1 m = 100 cm, so 1 m 2 = 10,000 cm 2 So 9460 cm 2 = 0.946 m 2 Rounding up slightly, we can say that this is close to 1 square meter, which is close to 1 square yard (i.e. 9 square feet). So if the oil is 1/25th of an inch thick, the quart of oil will cover about one square yard of water (regardless of how DEEP the water is). But remember, this was just a guess at the thickness of the oil. Additionally it assumes that the oil sticks together in a film and does not disperse. If the oil is 10 times thinner (i.e. 0.1 mm) then the area covered will be ten times as great (i.e. 10 sq yards or 90 square feet)!
