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).

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.

## How to Convert Short Tons to Atomic Mass Units

### Example: How many atomic mass units are equivalent to 78.65 Short tons?

As;

1 Short tons = 5.4648794905711E+29 atomic mass units

78.65 Short tons = Y atomic mass units

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

Y equals 78.65 times 5.4648794905711E+29 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 78.65 * 5.4648794905711E+29 / 1 = 4.2981277193342E+31 atomic mass units

Answer is: 4.2981277193342E+31 atomic mass units are equivalent to 78.65 Short tons.
