Long Ton-force

A ton-force is one of various units of force defined as the weight of one ton due to standard gravity.[note 1] The precise definition depends on the definition of ton used.

Tonne-force

The tonne-force (tf or tf)[note 2] is equal to the weight of one tonne.

 one tonne-force = 1000 kilograms-force (kgf) = kilonewtons (kN) ? 2204.623 pounds-force (lbf)[note 3] ? 0.9842065 long tons-force[note 4] ? 1.1023113 short tons-force[note 5] ? 70931.64 poundals (pdl)[note 6]

Long ton-force

The long ton-force is equal to the weight of one long ton.

 one long ton-force = 2240 lbf = 1016.0469088 kgf = 9.96401641818352 kN = 1.12 short tons-force[note 7] ? 72069.87 pdl[note 8]

Short ton-force

The short ton-force is equal to the weight of one short ton.

 one short ton-force = 2000 lbf =  kgf = ? 0.892857 long tons-force[note 9] ? 64348.10 pdl[note 10]
