The density of most liquids that we use on a daily basis is similar to water, so it is possible to estimate that the weight will be similar to that of water. However, for other substances, like sugar, the density is different. The weight of three gallons of sugar is only about 21 pounds.

In order to determine the weight of three gallons of any substance, remember that the weight is equal to the density times the volume.
