**Definitions:**

**Long Ton** (abbreviations: **Lton, or ton imperial**): 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 1,016 kilograms (Kg), or approximately 2,239.859 pounds (lb), or 1.119929 short tons (US), or 1.016 metric tons.

**Newton** (abbreviation: **N**): is the International System of Units (SI) derived unit of force. It is named after Isaac Newton in recognition of his work on classical mechanics, specifically Newton's second law of motion. One newton is the force needed to accelerate one kilogram of mass at the rate of one metre per second squared in direction of the applied force.

## How to Convert Long Tons to Newtons

*Example: How many newtons are equivalent to 59.16 Long tons?*

As;

1 Long tons = 9964.0116357636 newtons

59.16 Long tons = Y newtons

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

Y equals 59.16 times 9964.0116357636 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 59.16 * 9964.0116357636 / 1 = 589470.92837178 newtons

Answer is: 589470.92837178 newtons are equivalent to 59.16 Long tons.
