Tons

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] 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.

Kilograms

The definition of the kilogram changed in 2019. Previously, one kilogram was equal to the mass of the platinum-iridium bar, known as the International Prototype of the Kilogram, which was stored in Sèvres, France.

The 2019 SI brochure now defines the kilogram using the Planck constant, and it is defined using the meter and second.[2] It is roughly equal to the mass of 1,000 cubic centimeters of water.

The kilogram, or kilogramme, is the SI base unit for weight, and is also a multiple of the gram. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilograms can be abbreviated as kg, for example 1 kilogram can be written as 1 kg.
