Pint (pt) Conversions
The pint (symbol: pt) is a unit of volume or capacity in both the imperial and United States customary measurement systems. In both of those systems it is traditionally one eighth of a gallon. Historically, units called a pint were used across much of Europe, with values varying between countries from less than half a litre to over one litre.
All Pint Converters
Pint comes from the Old French word pinte and perhaps ultimately from Vulgar Latin pincta meaning "painted", for marks painted on the side of a container to show capacity. In the United States, the liquid pint is legally defined as one eighth of a liquid gallon of precisely 231 cubic inches. As one US fluid pint of water weighs about a pound (16 ounces), this gives rise to a popular saying: "A pint's a pound, the world around".
