Depends what is in it
5 gallons of liquid does indeed occupy a volume of 0.67 cubic feet (5 gallons divided by 7.48 gallons per cubic foot), but a "5-gallon" bucket actually holds a bit more than 5… gallons. Take your bucket and a 1-gallon jug, fill the bucket with water a gallon at a time, and mark the side of the bucket at each 1 gallon interval. You will discover that the 5 gallon mark ends up about 1.75 inches from the top of the bucket. Therefore a full bucket really holds somewhere in the neighborhood of 5.75 gallons (+/- a few ounces, depending on bucket manufacturer). This "extra" space in the bucket is there for practical reasons, as well as for safety--imagine the mess potential in opening a bucket of paint that is full to the very tip-top. So if you are filling your bucket to the top, you are really dealing with a volume of about 0.77 cubic feet.
you fill the 3 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket twice 2 *3 6 gallons but the 5 gallon will only overflow once it hits 5 gallons. You get the 1 gallon half in the 3 gallo…n bucket and dump the water out of the 5 gallon bucket. You pour the 1 gallon left from the 3 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket and then refill the 3 gallon bucket and put the 3 gallons in making 4 gallons.
A 5-gallon bucket filled with water contains 0.668 cubic feet of water.
I'd say 12 inches. it's a guestimate but I'm sure I am pretty close.

foolish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1. at its brim. we'll come to knw when d bucket is full. stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Yes you are).. Actually the correct answer is one inch below …the brim.. This was calculated by weight over several five gallon buckets.
1 Liter of water weighs 1 Kg. 5 gallons of water is 18.93 Liters, so 18.93 Kg for the water. I have no idea the mass of the bucket.

Volume is the measure of space. A 5 gallon bucket is roughly 1152 cubic inches.
Firstly fill up the 7 gallon bucket, then pour the contents into the empty 5 gallon bucket until it is full. This will leave 2 gallons in the 7 gallon bucket. Empty the 5 gall…on bucket, then pour the remaining 2 gallons of the 7 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket. Fill up the 7 gallon bucket again. Top up the 5 gallon bucket, this will leave 4 gallons in the 7 gallon bucket. Empty the 5 gallon bucket again. Pour the 4 remaining gallons from the 7 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket. Fill the 7 gallon bucket again then top up the 5 gallon bucket. This will leave 6 gallons in the 7 gallon bucket.
