Ton Definition and Usage
One short ton, sometimes called a US ton, is equal to 2,000 pounds and is mostly used in the US as a unit of mass/weight. The short ton should not be confused with the long ton, which is used mostly in the United Kingdom, or the metric ton which is used in most other countries.
The ton is a US customary unit of weight. A ton is sometimes also referred to as a short ton. Tons can be abbreviated as t; for example, 1 ton can be written as 1 t.
