## 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

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

• In the United States, US short tons are used for measuring weight, especially for coal, iron, steel, and other bulk commodities and goods.
• In Canada, US short tons are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for coal, iron, steel, and other bulk commodities and goods.
• In Mexico, US short tons are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for coal, iron, steel, and other bulk commodities and goods.
• In some other countries that use the metric system, US short tons are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for international trade and commerce.

## History of US Short Tons

US short tons have a relatively recent history that dates back to the late 19th century. Here are some highlights of the history of US short tons:

• The US short ton was originally based on the weight of a tun or a large cask that could hold about 252 gallons of wine or ale.
• The US short ton was part of the US customary system of measurements that was derived from the British imperial system of measurements that was used in the United States before its independence.
• The US short ton was adopted by many industries and sectors in the United States as a standard unit of weight for coal, iron, steel, and other bulk commodities and goods.
• The US short ton was also referred to as the net ton or simply the ton in some countries and contexts to distinguish it from the long ton used in the United Kingdom and some other Commonwealth of Nations countries and the metric tonne used in most other countries.

## Example Conversions of US Short Tons to Other Units

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

• 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

## Grains: A Unit of Weight

Grains are a unit of weight that are used for measuring small masses, such as bullets, arrows, and seeds. Grains are derived from the English word grain, which was the name of a seed or a cereal plant. The symbol for grain is gr.

## Definition of the Grain

The grain is defined as one seven-thousandth of an avoirdupois pound, which is the common unit of weight in the US customary system and the British imperial system. The grain is equal to the troy grain, which is the smallest unit of the troy weight system, which is used for measuring precious metals. The grain is also equal to the apothecaries’ grain, which is the smallest unit of the apothecaries’ weight system, which is used for measuring medicines.

The grain is equal to about 0.0023 avoirdupois ounces or 0.0648 grams. The grain is also equal to about 0.00014 troy ounces or 0.0417 pennyweights.

## How to Convert Grains

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

• To convert grains to avoirdupois ounces, divide by 437.5. For example, 10 gr = 10 / 437.5 = 0.0229 oz.
• To convert grains to avoirdupois pounds, divide by 7000. For example, 5 gr = 5 / 7000 = 0.0007 lb.
• To convert grains to tons (short), divide by 14000000. For example, 20 gr = 20 / 14000000 = 0.0000014 ton.
• To convert grains to kilograms, divide by 15432.3584. For example, 15 gr = 15 / 15432.3584 = 0.000972 kg.
• To convert grains to grams, divide by 15.4323584. For example, 25 gr = 25 / 15.4323584 = 1.6218 g.
• To convert grains to milligrams, multiply by 64.79891. For example, 30 gr = 30 x 64.79891 = 1943.9673 mg.

## Where Grains are Used

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

• In most countries that use the SI system, grains are not used for measuring weight, but only for measuring small masses, such as bullets, arrows, and seeds.
• In the United States, grains are sometimes used for measuring small masses, such as bullets, arrows, and seeds.
• In Canada, Australia and New Zealand, grains are sometimes used for measuring small masses, such as bullets, arrows, and seeds.
• In the United Kingdom, grains are sometimes used for measuring small masses, such as bullets, arrows, and seeds.
• In India, grains are sometimes used for measuring small masses, such as bullets, arrows, and seeds.

## History of Grains

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

• The grain was originally based on the weight of a single seed of wheat or barley, which was used as a unit of mass in ancient civilizations such as Egypt, Mesopotamia and Greece.
• The grain was part of different systems of measurement, such as the Tower system, the Troy system, the Avoirdupois system and the Apothecaries’ system. It varied from about 40 milligrams to about 80 milligrams depending on the region and the time period.
• The grain was standardized by royal statutes and international agreements in different periods of history. For example, in 1527 an act of Henry VIII fixed the grain at exactly one seven-thousandth of an avoirdupois pound; in 1828 an act of Congress adopted the troy ounce as the official unit of weight for coinage in the United States; in 1959 an international agreement defined the international avoirdupois ounce as exactly 28.349523125 grams.
