Pint to pound conversion calculator

Our pint to pound conversion is an efficient tool that lets you convert pints to pounds with the option to select from various everyday items, ranging from liquids like water, cooking oil, or milk to fruits, vegetables, and even cereals.

All you have to do is select which category of ingredients you want to convert, pick the specific item from the item list, and input the quantity either in pints or pounds. The rest will be done automatically by our pint to pound conversion tool.

For example, say you want to convert 6 pints of water to pounds in the US system. Our pints to pounds calculator will immediately find that it is equal to approximately 6.26 pounds of water.

But wait, that's not all the tool does! If you want to convert an item that is not available in our list, you can enter the density of the ingredient by selecting the Others from the Convert for option.

We use these liquid measurements mainly for commercial purposes, especially when trading goods. Commodities like oil, water, petrol, and diesel are often required to be traded in globally uniform units, which are the SI units.

How to convert pints to pounds?

A pint is a unit of volume in both imperial and US customary unit systems. Generally, a pint is 1/8th of a gallon or 1/2 of a quart.

Our pint to lb conversion calculator converts your required values in both unit systems, and more.

For example, the ratio of pints to pounds for water is:

1 US fluid pint = 1.04318 pounds

1 Imperial pint = 1.2582 pounds

You can convert any value from pint to pound, or vice versa.

Before we move onto the mathematical concepts, remember that density is crucial to this conversion because we calculate from volume to weight.

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you had to wonder "How many pints are equal to a pound?". Well, now you may follow the steps given below to get your answer. First, we need to find the density in grams per cubic centimeter. Then we can use the equations below:

  • Pints to pounds

    US fluid pint:

    To convert a number of pints to pounds in the US unit system, use the formula:

    Number of pounds = Number of pints * density * 1.04318

    Imperial pint:

    To convert a number of pints to pounds in the imperial system, use the formula:

    Number of pounds = Number of pints * density * 1.2582

  • Pounds to pints

    The pint to pounds conversion can be done both ways, meaning you can also convert the numbers from pound to pint. All that is required is a simple alteration in the formulas above.

    To US fluid pint:
    To convert a number of pounds to pints in the US unit system, use the formula:

    Number of pints = Number of pounds / (density * 1.04318)

    To imperial pint:

    To convert a number of pounds to pints in the imperial system, use the formula:

    Number of pints = Number of pounds / (density * 1.2582)

These formulae are sure to help you the next time when you find yourself in a situation where you need to know how many pints are in an lb.

Pint to lb conversion. How many pints are in a lb?

You may convert pints to other volume measures, but calculating it for a dry item's weight is tricky. In certain situations, it might not even be possible, especially when you want to find pints for substances composed of large elements. In such a case, there is a significant free space between these elements which we cannot ignore.

The other less complex method is knowing the density of the ingredient you want do the pint to lb conversion for. So, the question "How many dry pints are in a pound?" can be answered with the following formula:

pint = pound / (1.04318 * density)

The commodities measured in pints are but are not limited to:

  • Ice cream;
  • Cooking oil;
  • Bottled milk;
  • Petrol;
  • Water; and
  • Motor oil.

But all these, and much more, can be converted from pound to pint, and vice versa, using our pint to pound conversion tool.

FAQ

How many pints of water are there in 10 pounds?

In the US unit system, there are about 9.59 pints in 10 pounds. In the imperial system, there are 7.98 pints. Depending on where you are in the world, you may want to choose your unit system carefully and then convert it using the following formulas:

Number in pint (US)= Number in pound / 1.04318

Number in pint (Imperial)= Number in pound / 1.2582

Remember, these formulae only apply when converting ingredients with the density same as water, i.e., 1 g/cm3.

How many pounds are there in 2.3 pints of cooking oil?

There are 2.11 pounds in 2.3 pints of cooking oil. To convert any number from pints to pounds, you may use the formula:

Number in pound = Number in pint × density × 1.04318

The ingredient's density expressed in g/cm3 is essential as we convert from volume to weight.

What is the ratio of pint to pounds?

There are two different ways to measure a fluid pint: the US customary units and the imperial unit system. The ratios from pint to pound for water are:

  1. US system: 1 pint : 1.04318 pounds

  2. Imperial system: 1 pint : 1.2528 pounds

The ratios show conversion for water or any ingredient with the same density as water, which is 1 g/cm3.
