how many tonnes in a pound

Tons to pounds conversion factors are listed below (for short (US), long (UK) and metric tons to pounds). To find out how many pounds in tons, multiply by the conversion factor or use the converter if the conversion is from US short tons.

1 Short Ton [US] = 2 000 Pounds
1 Long Ton [UK] = 2 240 Pounds
1 Metric Ton = 2 204.62262 Pounds

For example, to calculate how many pounds there are in a half ton (US), multiply the ton value by the conversion factor, 1/2 US ton * 2000 = 1000 lbs in a half short ton.

Ton is a unit of mass in different measurement systems and usually mistaken with each other. The short ton (also known as net ton) equals to 2000 pounds and used in North America (United States and Canada), the long ton (also known as weight or gross ton) is used in the imperial system (UK and some of the other English speaking countries) and defined as 2240 pounds or 1016 kilograms. The metric ton (also known as tonne) equals to 1000 kilograms and used in the metric system. The abbreviations for ton are “T” and “t“.

If you are trading internationally, you must know what type of ton as a weight unit is used in that country to avoid the surprises.

Pound is a unit of mass in the imperial and US customary measurement systems. International avoirdupois pound is defined as 0.45359237 kilograms. Troy pound is rarely used. There are 16 ounces in a pound and 12 troy ounces in a troy pound. The abbreviations are “lb“, “lbs“.
