    Question about water.

    Hey peeps,

    Got a quick question about water. Do the rules state how much water (in gallons) a 5' cube will hold? I've been looking but I can't find it anywhere. Any help would be welcome.

    Thanks in advance,

    Pappy

    1 cubic foot of water is 7.48 gallons.

    A 5' cube is 125 cubic feet. 125*7.48 is 935 gallons.

    Did you want those in US gallons or Imperial gallons? ;-)
    1 US gallon = 0.8327 Imperial gallons.

    I've become such a fan of the metric system lately, stuff like this is so much easier to figure out.

    That's where I was going to go with it.

    OH well, Rodrigo to the rescue!

    5 feet= 1.524m. Cube that gets you 3.540 cubic metres and a weight of about 3.54 tonnes. Water's heavy.

    You may not know the half of it!
    1 cubic centimeter = 1 milliliter = 1 gram of water (at 4 degrees C)
    Its how the milliliter and gram are actually defined.
    Makes things nice and simple.

    Greetings…

    See what happens when you don't pay attention in math class?

    [i]"Oh no! What the heck will I ever need this silly stuff for? I'll never have to use this stuff when I go out into the real world!"[i]

    5' square room
    Well, first you have to ask yourself, 'How high is the room?'
    Let's assume that the room is about 10' high.

    So… 5' x 5' x 10' = 250 cubic ft.
    Oh, wait… you said a 5' cube… so…

    5' x 5' x 5' = 125'

    A quick little jump to http://www.convert-me.com...

    125 cubic ft = 935 gallons, or 119700 fluid ounces.

    So, if your party was thinking of drinking up the flooding room, they better drink quick, and be really thirsty..

    … say, didn't someone say that they had a portible hole?
