Convert Atomic Mass Unit to Short Ton (amu to shton)

In next fields, kindly type your value in the text box under title [ From: ] to convert from atomic mass unit to Short ton (amu to shton). As you type your value, the answer will be automatically calculated and displayed in the text box under title [ To: ].


Atomic Mass Unit (abbreviations: amu, or u): also known as dalton (symbol: Da), is a standard unit of mass that used on an atomic or molecular scale (atomic mass). One unified atomic mass unit is about the mass of one nucleon (either a single proton or neutron) and equivalent to 1 g/mol.

Short Ton (abbreviations: shton, or ton U.S.): is a non-SI metric unit of mass. Although, it is used principally as a unit of mass, it has acquired a number of meanings and uses over long years. It is equivalent to 907.2 kilograms (Kg), or approximately 2000 pounds (lb), or 0.9072 metric tons, or 0.892913 long tons (imperial).

How to Convert Atomic Mass Units to Short Tons

Example: How many Short tons are equivalent to 96.32 atomic mass units?


1 atomic mass units = 1.8298665171398E-30 Short tons

96.32 atomic mass units = Y Short tons

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 96.32 times 1.8298665171398E-30 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 96.32 * 1.8298665171398E-30 / 1 = 1.762527429309E-28 Short tons

Answer is: 1.762527429309E-28 Short tons are equivalent to 96.32 atomic mass units.
