When we talk about **measurements**, we often hear about grams and quarts. These are two ways we measure things. **Grams** are a way to measure weight, and they’re often used in cooking or when we’re measuring soil for our gardening projects. On the other hand, **quarts** are a measurement for liquid and are often used for things like watering plants, making it important for gardeners like you!

To understand how to convert **grams** into **quarts**, we need to think about what we are measuring. For instance, a quart is a volume measurement, while a gram is a weight measurement. Because different materials have different densities (this means how much stuff is packed into a certain amount of space), we need to know what we are measuring to convert properly.

For example, if we have **100 grams** of water, we can convert that to quarts. The conversion is based on the fact that 1 quart of water weighs about 946 grams. We can set up an equation to find out how many quarts are in 100 grams of water:

$$

\text{Quarts} = \frac{\text{grams}}{946}

$$

So if we put in 100 grams:

$$

\text{Quarts} = \frac{100}{946} \approx 0.106 \text{ quarts}

$$

This tells us that 100 grams of water is about 0.106 quarts.

Now, let’s consider some examples of objects that are **exactly equal** to **100 grams**:

- A
**small tomato**– typical weight. - A
**medium apple**– almost the same weight. - A
**sliced cucumber**– if you slice it up enough, you could reach this weight. - About
**1/4 cup of sugar**– sugar weighs about 200 grams for a full cup, so half of that is 100. - A
**small onion**– often weighs around 100 grams. - A
**large egg**– one large egg weighs about 50-60 grams, so you might find two to be close to 100 grams. - A
**tiny bag of flour**– if you take a small bag, it might be 100 grams.

So as you keep gardening, remember that knowing how to measure things in grams and quarts can help you take care of your plants better!
