Usage notes

  • A tonne (about 2204.6 pounds) is approximately equal to a long ton (2240 pounds) and the difference is often not important. However, because "tonne" is often pronounced identically to "ton", there may be confusion about which unit is meant when the word is spoken. This may be avoided by using "metric ton" where "tonne" is intended.
