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.

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 Newtons to Short Tons

Example: How many Short tons are equivalent to 68 newtons?


1 newtons = 0.00011237272667017 Short tons

68 newtons = Y Short tons

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

Y equals 68 times 0.00011237272667017 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 68 * 0.00011237272667017 / 1 = 0.0076413454135714 Short tons

Answer is: 0.0076413454135714 Short tons are equivalent to 68 newtons.
