# How many lbs dose it equal to make one ton?

In the United States, when people say "a ton," they're most often thinking of the short ton of 2,000 pounds.

In the UK, a ton is equal to the long ton of 2,240 pounds.

Depends which "ton" you want:

• 1 US (short) ton = 2,000 pounds
• 1 UK (long) ton = 2,240 pounds
• 1 metric ton (tonne) = 1000 kg ≈ 2,205 pounds

The international unit for mass is the kilogram; the tonne (t) is a multiple of kg but is only an "accepted" unit in SI - the correct name is megagram.

Short and long ton are obsolete units that make many confusions.
There are 2,000 pounds in every ton. Wiki User
