What is a quart?

A quart is a unit of volume. A quart is equal to a quarter of a gallon or two pints. It is used in both Imperial Measurement and US Customary Measurement. Abbreviation: qt.

The British and US quart systems are slightly different.

In the UK, 1 quart is equivalent to approximately 1.13 litres and in the USA, 1 qt is approximately 0.94 liters.

The British quart system is the same both for liquid and dry measurements: 1 quart is equal to 2 imperialpints, or ¼ of an imperial gallon.

The U.S. liquid quart is equal to two liquid pints, or one-fourth U.S. gallon and 1 dry quart is equal to 2 dry pints.

You"ll see that although they"re not exactly the same, there is very little between the US and UK versions of a quart - the difference between 1 qt = 1.13L or 0.94L.

So, for the purposes of this conversion, I"ll be using the US customary system.

The quart was originally amedievalEnglish unit for dry and liquid measures that varied between 0.95 and 1.16 litres, relatively close to its modern equivalents. InGeoffrey Chaucer’sMiller’s Tale(about 1370), it was used as a measure for ale.

What is an ounce?

An ounce is a unit of weight (dry ounce) or a unit of volume (fluid ounce).

Abbreviation: fl oz, fl. oz., or oz. fl.

Just like with a quart, there are very slight differences in the conversions for Imperial or US Customary measurements.

US: 1 fluid ounce = 29.6 mlUK: 1 fluid ounce = 28.4 ml

Ounces can be abbreviated to oz.

In recipes, you might also see fluid ounces abbreviated to fl oz.

General Conversions

To get started, here are the usual conversions for liquids:

USA conversion: 1US fluid quart= 2 pints = 4 cups = 32 fluid ounces = 950 mililitres.

4 quarts = 1 gallon

UK conversion: 1 Imperial quart = 40 Imperial fluid ounces = 4+¾ cups = 1.13 litres.

1 gallon = 4 quarts = 8 pints = 16 cups = 128 fluid ounces

Mathematical Formula

To convert a fluid ounce to a quart, you need to divide the volume by the conversion ratio.

1 quart = 32 fluid ounces, so the formula is:quarts = fluid ounces ÷ 32- or -fluid ounces = quarts × 32

Convert ounces to quarts = the fluid ounces divided by 32.Convert quarts to ounces = the quarts x 32.

Quarts to Ounces

So, now you know what quartz and ounces are, as well as the equations.
