Oil density determines how much a 55-gallon drum can weigh. With a density of 790 kg/m3, a 55-gallon drum of crude oil would weigh around 188.98 kg.
To do this, we multiply 24.5 kilogrammes by 55 gallons and the weight of the oil drum (in cubic metres) to get our answer. You can easily convert cubic metres to gallons by dividing the former by 264.172 US gallons.
Oils’ density range widely depending on a number of variables, including the manufacturer. Additionally, both ambient pressure and temperature impact a substance’s density. Density typically decreases as temperature increases, assuming a constant pressure.
