Convert gal to foot / square second

Learn how to convert 1 gal to foot / square second step by step.

Calculation Breakdown

Set up the equation
$$1.0\left(gal\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(\dfrac{foot}{square \text{ } second}\right)$$
Define the base values of the selected units in relation to the SI unit $$\left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)$$
$$\text{Left side: 1.0 } \left(gal\right) = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 10^{-2}\left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 10^{-2}\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}$$
$$\text{Right side: 1.0 } \left(\dfrac{foot}{square \text{ } second}\right) = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 0.3048\left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 0.3048\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}$$
Insert known values into the conversion equation to determine $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$$1.0\left(gal\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(\dfrac{foot}{square \text{ } second}\right)$$
$$\text{Insert known values } =>$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 10^{-2}} \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 0.3048}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)}$$
$$\text{Or}$$
$$1.0 \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 10^{-2}} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 0.3048} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}$$
$$\text{Cancel SI units}$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 10^{-2}} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 0.3048} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$10^{-2} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times 0.3048$$
Switch sides
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times 0.3048 = 10^{-2}$$
Isolate $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
Multiply both sides by $$\left(\dfrac{1.0}{0.3048}\right)$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times 0.3048 \times \dfrac{1.0}{0.3048} = 10^{-2} \times \dfrac{1.0}{0.3048}$$
$$\text{Cancel}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{0.3048}} \times \dfrac{1.0}{{\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{0.3048}}} = 10^{-2} \times \dfrac{1.0}{0.3048}$$
$$\text{Simplify}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = \dfrac{10^{-2}}{0.3048}$$
Solve $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\approx0.032808399\approx3.2808 \times 10^{-2}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$1.0\left(gal\right)\approx{\color{rgb(20,165,174)} 3.2808 \times 10^{-2}}\left(\dfrac{foot}{square \text{ } second}\right)$$
