How to Convert Quarts to Grams

To convert a quart measurement to a gram measurement, multiply the volume by 946.352946 times the density of the ingredient or material.

You can use this simple formula to convert:

grams = quarts × 946.352946 × ingredient density

Thus, the volume in grams is equal to the quarts multiplied by 946.352946 times the density of the ingredient or material.

For example, here's how to convert 5 quarts to grams for an ingredient with a density of 0.7 g/mL.
5 qt = 5 × 946.352946 × 0.7 = 3,312.23531 g

Quarts 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.

Quarts

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

The quart is a US customary unit of volume. Quarts can be abbreviated as qt; for example, 1 quart can be written as 1 qt.

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.
