**Conversion Calculator: Convert 2 gallon jug to quarters**

Our conversion calculator shows that 7,019 quarters worth $1,754.75 fit in 2 gallon jug, jar, bucket, or bottle.

To convert different container sizes, enter the container size in gallons. Our calculator will tell you how many quarters will fit into it.

**Note:** The packing efficiency, also called packing density or packing fraction, is the ratio of the volume occupied by the quarters compared to the volume of the container itself. It is impossible to achieve 100% packing efficiency in the case of cylinders with a low aspect ratio, such as quarters. Here, we have chosen a packing efficiency of 75% (0.75), which is the highest practical efficiency you can achieve.

**How to calculate how many quarters fit in a 2 gallon jug**

In this section, we explain how to calculate how many quarters fit in a 2 gallon water jug and summarize what we found.

**Calculation Summary**

To summarize the answers found in the steps above, here is a list of the number of quarters that fit in a gallon jug plus other key variables:

**Volume of a 2 gallon jug :** 7,570.823568 cubic centimeters

**Volume of one quarter:** 0.80893 cubic centimeters

**Theoretical maximum number of quarters (perfect packing):** 9,359 quarters

**Value of the theoretical maximum number of quarters (100% perfect packing efficiency):** 2,339.75

**Actual packing efficiency:** 75%

**Number of quarters that fit in a 2 gallon jug:** 7,019 quarters

**Value of the number of quarters that fit in a 2 gallon jug:** $1,754.75

**Calculation Steps**

To calculate the number of quarters that fit in a 2 gallon water jug, follow these steps:

**Step 1:** Calculate the volume of the jug (7,570.823568 cubic centimeters)

A two gallon jug full of quarters is a cylinder with a volume of 2 gallons, 7.57082 liters, 0.00757082 cubic meters, 462 cubic inches, 7,570.823568 cubic centimeters, or 7,570,823.6 cubic millimeters.

**Step 2:** Calculate the volume of 1 quarter (0.80893 cubic centimeters)

To find the volume, we used the fact that a quarter is a cylinder with a height of 1.75 mm and a diameter of 24.26 mm. The equation to find the volume of one quarter is the formula for a cylindrical container:

Volume = pi * radius² = pi * (24.26mm/2)² = pi * (12.13)² = 808.93 mm³=0.80893 cm³

**Step 3:** Divide the volume of the jug by the volume of a quarter to find the theoretical maximum number of quarters with perfect packing. Then round down to the nearest whole number. Note: Perfect packing is not achievable.

Number of quarters=7,570.823568 cm³/0.80893 cm³=9,359.05896431=9,359 quarters

**Step 4:** Find the dollar value of the theoretical maximum number of quarters with perfect packing

Value of the quarters=9,359 quarters * ($0.25/quarter)=$2,339.75

**Step 5:** Determine the packing efficiency of quarters (75%)

Packing efficiency, also referred to as the packing density or packing fraction, describes how well objects fit in a container. There is an inherent inefficiency in packing coins because they are small round cylinders with a low aspect ratio, which leads to a loss of volume to dead space. For this reason, it is impossible to achieve perfect packing.

For example, pennies have been experimentally shown to have a packing efficiency of 57%. In contrast, quarters have a higher packing efficiency than in the case of pennies. For this analysis, we will assume that quarters have a 75% packing efficiency.

**Step 6:** Multiply the perfectly packed number of quarters found in Step 3 by the 75% packing efficiency found in Step 5 to find the number of quarters that will fit in a 2 gallon jug (7,019 quarters)

Number of quarters=7,570.823568 cm³/0.80893 cm³)*75%=(7,570.823568 cm³/0.80893 cm³)*(0.75)=7019.29422323=7,019 quarters

**Step 7:** Find the dollar value of the quarters ($1,754.75)

Value of the quarters=7,019 quarters * ($0.25/quarter)=$1,754.75

Following the math in the steps above, you can quickly calculate the number of quarters in a 2 gallon bucket full of coins (or other container sizes).
