How to Convert US Short Tons

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

  • To convert US short tons to avoirdupois pounds, multiply by 2000. For example, 10 tn = 10 x 2000 = 20000 lb.
  • To convert US short tons to long tons, multiply by 0.8929. For example, 5 tn = 5 x 0.8929 = 4.4645 LT.
  • To convert US short tons to tonnes, multiply by 0.9072. For example, 20 tn = 20 x 0.9072 = 18.144 t.
  • To convert US short tons to kilograms, multiply by 907.1847. For example, 15 tn = 15 x 907.1847 = 13607.7705 kg.
  • To convert US short tons to grams, multiply by 907184.7. For example, 25 tn = 25 x 907184.7 = 22679617.5 g.
  • To convert US short tons to milligrams, multiply by 907184700. For example, 30 tn = 30 x 907184700 = 27215541000 mg.

Where US Short Tons are Used

  • 1 tn = 2000 lb
  • 1 tn = 0.8929 LT
  • 1 tn = 0.9072 t
  • 1 tn = 907.1847 kg
  • 1 tn = 907184.7 g
  • 1 tn = 907184700 mg
  • 1 tn = 31.4286 oz t

Carats: A Unit of Weight

Carats are a unit of weight that are used for measuring gemstones and pearls. Carats are derived from the Arabic word qirat, which means a small weight or a seed. The symbol for carat is ct.

Definition of the Carat

The carat is defined as 200 milligrams, which is one fifth of a gram. The carat is divided into 100 points, which are each 2 milligrams. For example, a diamond that weighs 0.5 carat can also be expressed as 50 points or 100 milligrams.

The carat is not a legal unit of measurement in most countries, except for some that use the metric system, such as France, Belgium, Italy and Switzerland. In other countries, such as the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, the carat is used as a standard unit for the diamond industry.

How to Convert Carats

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

  • To convert carats to ounces, divide by 141.7476. For example, 10 ct = 10 / 141.7476 = 0.071 oz.
  • To convert carats to pounds, divide by 2267.962. For example, 20 ct = 20 / 2267.962 = 0.009 lb.
  • To convert carats to tons (short), divide by 4535923.7. For example, 50 ct = 50 / 4535923.7 = 0.000011 ton.
  • To convert carats to grams, divide by 5. For example, 100 ct = 100 / 5 = 20 g.
  • To convert carats to kilograms, divide by 5000. For example, 200 ct = 200 / 5000 = 0.04 kg.
  • To convert carats to milligrams, multiply by 200. For example, 25 ct = 25 x 200 = 5000 mg.

Where Carats are Used

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

  • In most countries that use the metric system, carats are used for measuring gemstones and pearls, such as diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds and pearls.
  • In the United States, carats are used for measuring gemstones and pearls, especially for diamonds and diamond jewelry.
  • In Canada, Australia and New Zealand, carats are used for measuring gemstones and pearls, especially for diamonds and diamond jewelry.
  • In China, carats are used for measuring gemstones and pearls, especially for jade and jade jewelry.
  • In India, carats are used for measuring gemstones and pearls, especially for gold and gold jewelry.

History of Carats

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

  • The carat was originally based on the weight of a carob seed, which was used as a counterweight in balance scales by ancient traders and jewelers. The carob seed was believed to have a uniform weight of about one fifth of a gram.
  • The carat was used in different systems of measurement, such as the Roman system, the Byzantine system, the Arabic system and the Ottoman system. It varied from about 180 milligrams to about 220 milligrams depending on the region and the time period.
  • The carat was standardized by international agreements in different periods of history. For example, in 1575 an agreement between France and England fixed the carat at 205 milligrams; in 1871 an agreement between Parisian jewelers fixed the carat at 205.3 milligrams; in 1907 an agreement between the International Committee of Weights and Measures fixed the carat at exactly 200 milligrams.
