How many dollar bills are in one ton?
According to one source, a dollar bill weighs an ounce. There are 16 ounces in a pound. 16*2000=32000, so there would be $32,000 in one ton of dollar bills. Another source says a dollar bill weighs one gram. There are 28.34952grams in one ounce. Rounding it to 28 grams in one ounce, 16*28=448 grams in one pound. 448*2000=$896,000 if you round. Not rounding, it would be 16(oz=1lb)*28.34952=453.59232 453.59232*2000=$907,184.64
It's simply a saying (colloquialism). To try to get a true answer to the question, you would need to know the exact weight of a coin or bill and divide it into 2000 pounds. One $100 bill weighs about a gram. A thousand $100 bills would be 1 kilo ($100,000). So 1 million dollars would weigh 10 kilos or around 22 lbs. A metric ton would in $100 bills would be worth a hundred million…
