## What is a Ton?

A ton is a unit used to measure weight.

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.

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.

## How Much is a Ton?

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.^{[1]} One ton is equal to 907.18474 kilograms.

## How to Convert Tons

To convert tons to another unit of weight, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor.
A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.^{[2]}

You can find the conversion factors for tons in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the weight measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

tons × conversion factor = result

You can also use a calculator, such as one of the converters below, for the conversion.
