How to Convert Pints to Grams

Scales are used to measure weight

To convert a pint measurement to a gram measurement, multiply the volume by 473.176473 times the density of the ingredient or material.

You can use this simple formula to convert:

grams = pints × 473.176473 × ingredient density

Thus, the volume in grams is equal to the pints multiplied by 473.176473 times the density of the ingredient or material.

For example, here's how to convert 5 pints to grams for an ingredient with a density of 0.7 g/mL.
5 pt = 5 × 473.176473 × 0.7 = 1,656.11766 g

Pints and grams are both commonly used to measure cooking ingredients.

For cooking applications, most chefs suggest measuring dry ingredients by weight rather than volume to improve accuracy in the measurements.[1] The density of dry ingredients can vary for a variety of reasons, such as compaction.

The best way to ensure an accurate conversion is to use a scale. When a scale is not available, a calculator like the one above is a good way to estimate the volume to weight conversion.

Pints

The US liquid pint is a unit of fluid volume equal to one-eighth of a gallon, one-half of a quart, or two cups. The liquid pint should not be confused with the dry pint (US) or the imperial pint, which are different units.

The pint is a US customary unit of volume. Pints can be abbreviated as pt; for example, 1 pint can be written as 1 pt.

Grams

A gram is the mass/weight equal to 1/1,000 of a kilogram and is roughly equivalent to the mass of one cubic centimeter of water.

The gram, or gramme, is an SI unit of weight in the metric system. Grams can be abbreviated as g; for example, 1 gram can be written as 1 g.
