The specific gravity of pure cream (milk fat) is 0.93. One gallon of water weighs 8.34 (rounded to the nearest hundredth) pounds. Therefore, one U.S. gallon of cream weighs 7.7562 pounds.

To be classified as light cream, the product must contain less than 30 percent butterfat but not less than 18 percent butterfat. Standard weight per US gallon of Light Cream at 18 percent butterfat is 8.51 pounds.

Heavy cream is actually about as dense as water. Its specific gravity at 20 deg. C is 0.994 since the high butterfat content balances off the solids.

Water weighs about 8.345404 pounds per gallon

the cream would be 8.345404 pounds/gal * 0.994 = 8.29533 pounds/gal.

Note: As the final answer, it would round to 3 significant digits 8.20 pounds/gal.

If you want to calculate the weight of, say, 5870 gallons you would multiply as follows:

8.29533 pounds/gal * 5870 gal = 48693.59635112 pounds

...and that answer should be rounded to 3 significant digits: 48,700 pounds.

If you haul milk or cream, figure 8 pounds to the gallon. 47,000 pounds is close enough for loading a truck.

For liquid measurements, use volume, not weight. 8oz of heavy cream is equivalent to 1 cup, or 250ml.

In standard 'cooking' measure, "1 cup" of anything

is the same as 8 fluid ounces of it.
