Your trying to figure out how much water fits in one of those big plastic totes. It's stamped on the side.
Only that's for 8 pound water, I don't know about 6 pound water.
It ain't bragging if you can do it.

To calculate the gallons of water on a given area it is square feet times dept of water in inches times 0.62.

9 square feet X 1 inch X 0.62 = 5.58 gallons

Wrong . You Google how many gallons in a 3' x3' by 1 inch area....5.61 gallons

There are 0.00433 gallons in a cubic inch.

36”x36”x1”= 1296 cubic inches

1296 cubic inches x 0.00433 gallons/cubic inch = 5.61 gallons

That’s rounded down as well on that 8lb water.

Are you trying to figure how much water you can haul to your hidden marijuana plants down by the creek?

Be cheaper to just buy the jelly.
I planted 50 Chickasaw plums about 20 years ago. Deer ate 49 to the ground.
Still have one left, bears well but must be guarded 24 hours a day in fruit.
It takes a Jack Russell and a shotgun to keep the squirrel and coons from getting everyone.

8 tenths I believe, or is it 8 ounces

I would have to look it up, I just remember it’s a little over 8 lb.
I always round down as well just makes the math easier.
