# A firkin is an old British unit of volume equal to 9 gallons. How many cubic meters are there in 6.00 firkins?

Sep 26, 2016

$\text{1 firkin = 72 pints}$ $=$ $40.90 \cdot L$.

$\text{6 firkins = 0.245} \cdot {m}^{3}$.

#### Explanation:

The firkin is an old English measure of volume, that was used in the beer trade. $\text{1 firkin = 72 pints or 9 Imperial Gallons}$ $=$ $40.92 \cdot L$.

And thus $\text{6 firkins}$ $=$

$6 {\text{ firkins"xx72" pints firkin"^-1xx0.568*L*"pint}}^{-} 1 \times {10}^{-} 3 \cdot {m}^{3} \cdot {L}^{-} 1$

$=$ $0.25 \cdot {m}^{3}$.
