Default Co2 consumption per gal

I am getting a 5lb co2 tank and a 5gal corny keg and was wondering if anyone knows the how many kegs I would get out of a 5lb tank?

Ok so you might have to explain force carbing for me, I know I've heard and had it explained to me I just forget. 6-8 5gal kegs isn't bad at all.

force carb....turn up gas pressure on uncarbonated beer to carbonate it. decrease pressure for serving.

natural carb: add sugar, close it up, wait.
