How to convert

1 stone (st) = 0.006350293 metric ton (t). Stone (st) is a unit of Weight used in Standard system. Metric Ton (t) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system.

Stones: A Unit of Weight

Stones are a unit of weight that are used in the British imperial system and the US customary system. Stones are derived from the use of stones for weights, a practice that dates back to ancient times. The word stone comes from the Old English stan, meaning stone, and the abbreviation st comes from the Latin word statera, meaning balance.

Definition of the Stone

The stone is defined as 14 pounds avoirdupois, which is equal to 6.35 kilograms or 224 ounces. The avoirdupois pound is defined as 7000 grains, which is a unit of mass based on the weight of a grain of wheat. The stone is one-eighth of a hundredweight, which is 112 pounds, and one-quarter of a quarter, which is 28 pounds.

The stone is not a legal unit of measurement in most countries, except for the United Kingdom and Ireland, where it is still used for measuring body weight. In other countries, such as the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, the stone is sometimes used informally for expressing human weight.

How to Convert Stones

Stones can be converted to other units of weight by using conversion factors or formulas. Here are some examples of how to convert stones to other units of weight in the US customary system and the SI system:

  • To convert stones to pounds, multiply by 14. For example, 10 st = 10 x 14 = 140 lb.
  • To convert stones to ounces, multiply by 224. For example, 5 st = 5 x 224 = 1120 oz.
  • To convert stones to tons (short), divide by 142.857. For example, 20 st = 20 / 142.857 = 0.14 ton.
  • To convert stones to kilograms, multiply by 6.35. For example, 8 st = 8 x 6.35 = 50.8 kg.
  • To convert stones to grams, multiply by 6350. For example, 3 st = 3 x 6350 = 19050 g.
  • To convert stones to milligrams, multiply by 6350000. For example, 2 st = 2 x 6350000 = 12700000 mg.

Where Stones are Used

Stones are used in different countries and regions for different applications and purposes. Here are some examples of where stones are used:

  • In the United Kingdom and Ireland, stones are used for measuring body weight and livestock weight. For example, a person may weigh 11 st or a cow may weigh 40 st.
  • In the United States, stones are sometimes used for measuring body weight and sports equipment. For example, a boxer may weigh 12 st or a bowling ball may weigh 1 st.
  • In Canada, Australia and New Zealand, stones are sometimes used for measuring body weight and agricultural products. For example, a person may weigh 9 st or a bag of potatoes may weigh 2 st.
  • In some African countries, such as Kenya and Uganda, stones are sometimes used for measuring crops and commodities. For example, a sack of maize may weigh 4 st or a bunch of bananas may weigh 1 st.

History of Stones

Stones have a long history that dates back to ancient times. Here are some highlights of the history of stones:

  • The stone was an ancient unit of measurement that was based on the weight of a natural stone or rock. It varied from place to place and from time to time depending on the type and size of the stone used.
  • The stone was used in different systems of measurement, such as the Roman system, the Anglo-Saxon system, the English system and the Scottish system. It ranged from about 5 pounds to about 40 pounds depending on the region and the object weighed.
  • The stone was standardized by royal statutes and international agreements in different periods of history. For example, in 1389 a royal statute fixed the stone of wool at 14 pounds in England; in 1824 an international agreement defined the avoirdupois pound as exactly 453.59237 grams; in 1835 an act permitted using a stone of 14 pounds for trade in Britain; in 1959 an international agreement defined the international avoirdupois ounce as exactly 28.349523125 grams.

Example Conversions of Stones to Other Units

Here are some examples of conversions of stones to other units of weight:

  • 1 st = 14 lb
  • 1 st = 224 oz
  • 1 st = 0.007143 ton
  • 1 st = 6.35 kg
  • 1 st = 6350 g
  • 1 st = 6350000 mg
  • 1 st = 0.714286 troy oz
  • 1 st = 0.714286 apothecaries’ oz
  • 1 st = 0.5 Spanish oz
  • 1 st = 0.458333 French oz

Metric Tons: A Unit of Weight

Metric tons are a unit of weight that are used for measuring large masses, such as vehicles, ships, and buildings. Metric tons are also known as tonnes or megagrams. The symbol for metric ton is t.

Definition of the Metric Ton

The metric ton is defined as 1000 kilograms, which is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI). The metric ton is also equal to one million grams or one billion milligrams.

The metric ton is equal to about 2204.6 avoirdupois pounds or 1.1023 short tons. The metric ton is also equal to about 0.9842 long tons or 0.9072 tonnes-force.

How to Convert Metric Tons

Metric tons can be converted to other units of weight by using conversion factors or formulas. Here are some examples of how to convert metric tons to other units of weight in the US customary system and the SI system:

  • To convert metric tons to avoirdupois pounds, multiply by 2204.6226. For example, 10 t = 10 x 2204.6226 = 22046.226 lb.
  • To convert metric tons to short tons, multiply by 1.1023. For example, 5 t = 5 x 1.1023 = 5.5115 st.
  • To convert metric tons to long tons, multiply by 0.9842. For example, 20 t = 20 x 0.9842 = 19.684 lt.
  • To convert metric tons to kilograms, multiply by 1000. For example, 15 t = 15 x 1000 = 15000 kg.
  • To convert metric tons to grams, multiply by 1000000. For example, 25 t = 25 x 1000000 = 25000000 g.
  • To convert metric tons to milligrams, multiply by 1000000000. For example, 30 t = 30 x 1000000000 = 30000000000 mg.

Where Metric Tons are Used

Metric tons are used in different countries and regions for different applications and purposes. Here are some examples of where metric tons are used:

  • In most countries that use the SI system, metric tons are used for measuring weight, especially for large masses, such as vehicles, ships, and buildings.
  • In the United States, metric tons are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for international trade and commerce.
  • In Canada, Australia and New Zealand, metric tons are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for international trade and commerce.
  • In the United Kingdom, metric tons are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for international trade and commerce.
  • In India, metric tons are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for international trade and commerce.

History of Metric Tons

Metric tons have a relatively short history that dates back to the late 18th century. Here are some highlights of the history of metric tons:

  • The metric ton was originally based on the weight of a cubic meter of water at its maximum density of four degrees Celsius, which was approximately equal to 1000 kilograms.
  • The metric ton was part of the original metric system that was introduced in France in 1795 as a decimal-based system of measurement that was designed to replace the traditional units that varied from region to region.
  • The metric ton was adopted by many countries around the world as part of the International System of Units (SI) that was established in 1960 as a universal system of measurement that was based on seven base units and several derived units.
  • The metric ton was also referred to as the tonne or the megagram in some countries and contexts to distinguish it from the non-metric units of the short ton and the long ton.

Example Conversions of Metric Tons to Other Units

Here are some examples of conversions of metric tons to other units of weight:

  • 1 t = 2204.6226 lb
  • 1 t = 1.1023 st
  • 1 t = 0.9842 lt
  • 1 t = 1000 kg
  • 1 t = 1000000 g
  • 1 t = 1000000000 mg
  • 1 t = 32.1507 oz t
  • 1 t = 643.0149 dwt
  • 1 t = 15432.3584 gr
  • 1 t = 0.001 kN
Metric Tons also can be marked as Tonnes (alternative British English spelling in UK).
