**Definitions:**

**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).

**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 Short Tons to Newtons

*Example: How many newtons are equivalent to 20.6 Short tons?*

As;

1 Short tons = 8896.4409787864 newtons

20.6 Short tons = Y newtons

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

Y equals 20.6 times 8896.4409787864 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 20.6 * 8896.4409787864 / 1 = 183266.684163 newtons

Answer is: 183266.684163 newtons are equivalent to 20.6 Short tons.
