Pint


Pint
The pint is the name of a unit of liquid measurement in some countries. The pint is defined as of a gallon. Because the imperial system and the American system use different gallons, their pints are different also.
The imperial pint is still used to measure beer in the countries of the old British Empire. It is usually not used today for anything else. It is divided into 20 fluid ounces.
The United States is the only other country to use pints. In the American system there are two pints. There is a wet pint and a dry pint. Six U.S. wet pints are about five imperial pints. The U.S. wet pint is divided into 16 fluid ounces.
