tons, a plural
but one ton of rocks
the correct answer is 1.
Is this a trick question? A ton of anything should weigh a ton.
It depends one what you are measuring. A ton of rock and a ton of dirt measure out to different amounts of yards.
A megaton is one million tons. A metric ton (or tonne) is about 2200 lbs. A ton is 2000 lbs. Multiply 1,000,000 times 2000, ten divide by 2200, and you will get about 907,184.74 metric tons in a megaton.
The cost to have one ton of river rock delivered and installed will cost about $140. However, if two tons are delivered, it will cost about $210.
The ton depends where you are:In the UK, the ton is the long ton = 2,240 lb → 4 tonnes ≈ 3.94 tonsIn the US, the ton is the short ton = 2,000 lb → 4 tonnes ≈ 4.41 tons
Where:1 ton is a long ton (2240 lb), 100 tons = 101.605 tonnes1 ton is a short ton (2000 lb), 100 tons = 90.7185 tonnes
A metric ton is 0.907185 of a ton. That gives you 2.449 tons.
A metric ton is 0.907185 of a ton. That gives you 5.765 tons.
A metric ton is 0.907185 of a ton. That gives you 2.268 tons.
1 ton is 0.91 metric tons.
1 short ton = 0.9078 metric tons 1 long ton = 1.016 metric tons
A metric ton is 0.907185 of a ton. That gives you 16,766 tons.
1 ton = 0.90718474... metric tons1 metric ton = 1.1023113... tons
there is about 1.25 yards to a ton,so 22.5 tons would be approx 18 yards
A metric ton is 0.907185 of a ton. That gives you 11.79 metric tons.
1 ton (metric) = 1.1 tons (short).
1.10231131 short tons in one metric ton (tonne).
1 metric ton is 1.1 short tons.
This depends on how much rock you will use per square yard. Suppose you intend to use 1/100 tons (=20 lb) per square yard. Then if you have one ton of rock, it will cover 100 square yards. Similarly, if you intended to use 1/50 tons per square yard, 1 ton will cover 50 square yards. In general you want to use factor labeling: If you are using x tons per square yard, then write this as (1 square yard) / (x tons of rock) = (1/x)*(square yards/tons of rock) This is called a conversion factor. Now, if you have some quantity of rock, say y tons of rock, and you want to see how many square yards it would cover you just multiply (y tons of rock)*(1/x)*(square yards/tons of rock) = y/x (square yards*tons of rock/tons of rock) = y/x square yards since the labels just divide out.
There are 2000 pounds in one ton. Therefore, 2000 tons is equal to 2000 x 2000 = 4000000 pounds.
A long ton weighs 2,240 pounds A short ton weighs 2,000 pounds 16 metric tons weighs 15.747304 long tons 16 metric tons weighs 17.636981 short tons Short tons tend to be used in the US, long tons in the UK and elsewhere.
A good estimate for the density of rock is about 1.5 tons per cubic meter. For a 10,000 ton rock this would give a volume of about 6,700 cubic meters. If the rock is spherical the diameter will be roughly 23 meters or 75 feet. This is close to official esitmates fo 65 feet for the object. Given the magnitude of the explosion, claims that the Chelyabinsk meteor was 10 tons are absurd.
About 1.10231 US tons per metric ton.
