**Definitions:**

**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.

**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.

## How to Convert Newtons to Long Tons

*Example: How many Long tons are equivalent to 58.99 newtons?*

As;

1 newtons = 0.00010036118348264 Long tons

58.99 newtons = Y Long tons

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

Y equals 58.99 times 0.00010036118348264 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 58.99 * 0.00010036118348264 / 1 = 0.0059203062136408 Long tons

Answer is: 0.0059203062136408 Long tons are equivalent to 58.99 newtons.
