> neither, they both weigh 2,000 pounds > > They both weigh the same. They're both a ton. > The above is not complete. Gold is measured using the Troy system of weights where the ounce is heavier but there's less of them per pound. 1 Avoirdupois ounce = 28.3 grams (Feathers) 1 Troy ounce = 31.1 grams (Gold) There are 12 Troy Ounces is a Troy Pound. There are 16 Avoirdupois Ounces in a Avoirdupois Pound 453 grams in a Avoirdupois pound. 373 grams in a Troy Pound So the Avoirdupois pound is heavier. a troy ton is 2450 troy pounds or 913 kg a Avoirdupois ton has 2 weights, the short ton and the long ton. (note: in the US "short ton" is known as ton and long ton is mostly unused, also known as the imperial ton) a short ton, 907 kg (2000lbs) a long ton is 1016 kg (2240 lbs) So, a short ton of feathers weighs less than a ton of gold, a long ton of feathers weighs more than a ton of gold. Fun times. Unless of course you're referring to the metric ton which is 1000 kg (2205 lbs). In which case they are the same weight.

If there are 16 ounces in a pound, and 2000 pounds in a ton, then there are 32,000 ounces in a ton.

The metric tonne is heavier than the US ton. 1 metric tonne is 1000 Kgs or 2204.62 pounds compared to 1 US ton which is 907.19 Kgs or 2000 pounds.
