In the video it shows "a pound of milk", but it seems he actually says "about a pint of milk". So is a pound of milk almost equivalent to a pint of milk?
Good question! He does say "pint" instead of "pound" here. A pound measures a unit of weight and a pint measures a unit of volume, so these are measuring different things. Thus, the conversion rate depends on level of density. Generally, one pound is approximately equal to 0.96 pints, which is why the speaker says "about a pint" here (to indicate it is around one pound total).
