Info about Short ton

In outdated terms, the short ton is also known as "American ton" and is especially common in the USA. It is equivalent to 20 "short hundredweight" or 2 000 pounds.

Exactly as with the long ton, a short 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 short ton is equivalent to 20 short hundredweights, which in turn is equivalent to 2 000 pounds and thus 907.18474 kilograms.

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.
