The weight of water is approximately 2 pounds 3 ounces per litre. How much will 8 litres of water weigh?
First, convert 2 pounds 3 ounces to ounces.
16 ounces to a pound, so we have:
2(16) + 3
32 + 3
35 ounces for one liter
For 8 litres, we have:
35 * 8 = 280 ounces
Now, convert that back to pounds
280/16 = 17.5 pounds, or 17 pounds, 8 ounces.
