The US short ton is defined as 2000 pounds, which is the common unit of weight in the US customary system of measurements. The US short ton is equal to 20 short hundredweight, each of which is 100 pounds. The US short ton is also equal to 0.893 long tons, which are used in the United Kingdom and some other Commonwealth of Nations countries.

The US short ton is equal to about 907 kilograms or 0.907 tonnes. The US short ton is also equal to about 0.8929 tonnes-force.

## 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
• 1 tn = 628.5714 dwt
• 1 tn = 31428.5714 gr
• 1 tn = 0.0089 kN

## Definition of Micrograms

A microgram is a unit of mass or weight equal to one-millionth of a gram. It is part of the metric system, which is based on powers of ten. The symbol for microgram is μg according to the International System of Units (SI); the recommended symbol in the United States and United Kingdom when communicating medical information is mcg. One microgram is equivalent to 0.001 milligrams or 0.000000001 kilograms. It is also equal to 0.000015 grains, which is a unit of weight in the imperial system.

## How to Convert Micrograms

To convert micrograms to other units of weight, we need to multiply or divide by the appropriate conversion factor. For example, to convert micrograms to milligrams, we divide by 1000; to convert micrograms to grams, we divide by 1,000,000; and to convert micrograms to kilograms, we divide by 1,000,000,000. Here are some examples of conversion factors for different units of weight:

• 1 microgram = 0.001 milligram
• 1 microgram = 0.000001 gram
• 1 microgram = 0.000000001 kilogram
• 1 microgram = 0.000000035 ounce
• 1 microgram = 0.000000002 pound
• 1 microgram = 0.000015 grain

## Where Micrograms are Used

Micrograms are very commonly used in scientific and medical fields where precision and accuracy are essential. For example, micrograms may be used to measure:

• The mass of tiny objects or substances, such as bacteria, viruses, DNA, hormones or pollutants.
• The dosage of some medications, such as steroids, anticoagulants or chemotherapy drugs.
• The concentration of some nutrients or toxins in food, water or air.

Micrograms may also be used in different countries for different applications. For example, in China, micrograms are used to measure the weight of silk; in India, micrograms are used to measure the weight of spices; and in Switzerland, micrograms are used to measure the weight of gold.

## History of Micrograms

The origin of micrograms can be traced back to the development of the metric system in France in the late 18th century. The metric system was designed to simplify and standardize the measurement of length, area, volume and mass by using decimal units based on the meter and the kilogram. The gram was defined as one-thousandth of a kilogram, and the microgram was defined as one-millionth of a gram.

The metric system was adopted by many countries around the world over the next two centuries, but it also faced some resistance and opposition from those who preferred the traditional units of measurement. In some cases, the metric system was modified or adapted to suit local needs and preferences. For example, in Germany, the metric system was officially adopted in 1872, but some old units such as pfund (pound) and zentner (hundredweight) are still used today.

The International System of Units (SI) was established in 1960 as a modern version of the metric system that is based on seven base units: meter, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, mole and candela. The SI also defines several derived units that are combinations of the base units, such as newton, joule and watt. The SI is recognized as the global standard for measurement and is used by most countries and international organizations today.

## Example Conversions of Micrograms to Other Units

Here are some examples of how to convert micrograms to other units of weight using the conversion factors mentioned above:

• 2 micrograms = 0.002 milligrams
• 5 micrograms = 0.000005 grams
• 10 micrograms = 0.00000001 kilograms
• 15 micrograms = 0.00000053 ounces
• 20 micrograms = 0.00000004 pounds
• 25 micrograms = 0.00039 grains
Micrograms also can be marked as Microgrammes or µg (alternative British English spelling in UK).
