There are a variety of U.S. Customary, British Imperial and metric (SI) units for volume. The U.S. has two definitions of the pint
and quart called the dry and wet measures. Each has a different size, something most Americans probably don't even realize.
The U.S. system has an ounce which refers to a fluid volume, but also an ounce that refers to mass; these are not interchangeable.
In general, an ounce of liquid does not weigh an ounce. The British Imperial system of liquid and dry measure uses only one ounce,
pint and quart, but these differ from any of the U.S. measures as does the British Imperial gallon, peck and bushel.

 Unit Equivalent volume measures Ounce (oz, U.S.) One fluid ounce = 1/8 of a half-pint = 1/16 of a pint = 1/32 of a quart = 1/128 of a gallon. One fluid ounce = 29.5735 milliliters. Pint (pt, U.S.) There are two half-pints = 16 ounces in a pint. There are 2 pints in a quart and 8 pints in a gallon. One pint = 473.176 milliliters. Quart (qt, U.S.) There are 4 half-pints = 2 pints = 32 ounces in a quart. There are 4 quarts in a gallon. 1 quart = 0.94635 liters = 946.35 milliliters. Gallon (gal, U.S.) There are 128 ounces = 8 pints = 4 quarts in a gallon. 1 gallon = 3.785 liters. Cubic inches (in3, cub. in., U.S.) This is the volume occupied by a cube one inch on a side. 1 cubic inch = 16.387 cubic centimeters (cc and mL), There are 1728 cubic inches in one cubic foot. Cubic feet (ft3, cub. ft., U.S.) This is the volume occupied by a cube one foot on a side. 1 cubic foot = 1728 cubic inches = 28,316.8 cubic centimeters (cc, cm3, mL) Cubic yard (yd3, cub. yd., U.S.) This is the volume occupied by a cube one yard on a side. 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet = 0.7646 cubic meters. Milliliter (mL, cc, cm3, metric) The prefix "milli" means 1/1000, so 1 milliliter = 0.001 liters. Alternatively, there are 1000 milliliters in a liter. One milliliter = 0.0338 fluid ounces. Also known as a cubic centimeter, because a cube 1 cm on each side has a volume of 1 ml. One ml of water weighs 1 gram. Deciliter (dl, metric) The prefix "deci" means 1/10, so 1 deciliter = 0.10 liters. There are 10 deciliters in a liter. Try not to confuse this with the deca liter which is equal to 10 liters. Liter (l, metric) 1 liter is the volume of a cube that is 10 cm (1 deciliter) on each side (see distance units). There are 10 deciliters = 1,000 milliliters = 1,000 cubic centimeters = 1.057 quarts = 33.814 ounces in a liter. One liter of water weighs 1,000 grams = 1 kilogram. Cubic Meter (m3, m3, metric) This is the volume of a cube 1 meter (see distance units) on each side. One cubic meter = 1000 liters. One cubic meter of water weighs 1 metric ton = 1,000 kilograms = 1,000,000 grams.
