Default how much water is displaced by a pound of grain?

I'm trying to decide which pot to use for my partial mash... is there an easy way to tell how much the water will rise when I put the grain in, so that I can make sure I'm using a big enough pot?

i.e. something along the lines of: I need an extra xxx gallons of headspace for every pound of grain I put in.

Thanks!

1 lb grain + 1 qt water = 1.3200 qt (courtesy of Promash)
