Info about Long ton

In outdated terms, the long ton is also called the "British ton". It is equivalent to 20 "long hundredweight" or 2,240 pounds.

Exactly as with the short ton, a long ton is equivalent to 20 hundredweight. The unit hundredweight differs in the British and American systems, however. While in America a hundredweight is defined as 100 pounds, in the Anglo-Saxon world it is defined as 112 pounds. Thus: one long ton is equivalent to 20 long hundredweights, which in turn is equivalent to 2 240 pounds and thus 1 016.0469088 kilograms.

The long ton is used in particular for the standard displacement of a ship, which was established in 1922 in Washington.

Incidentally, the well-known unit "ton" from the metric system, which is defined as 1 000 kilograms, is consequently called the metric ton in the Anglo-American area to differentiate from the long ton and short ton.
