Quick Rough Maths

To get the Tonnes, divide the number of Pounds by 2.2 thousand

Pounds (lb) in 1 Tonne

There are 2204.62 Pounds in 1 Tonne

Tonnes (t) in 1 Pound

There are 0 Tonnes in 1 Pound

Symbol: **lb**

The pound is a unit of mass (acceptable for use as weight on Earth) and is part of the imperial system of units. It has the symbol lb.

Not to be confused with a number of other definitions, the most common is international avoirdupois pound. The avoirdupois pound is defined as exactly 0.45359237 kilograms and is divided into 16 avoirdupois ounces.

One of the most common uses of the pound is in measuring the mass / weight of human beings or animals. When introduced, sports athletes such as boxers or wrestlers are described by their weight in pounds before any other characteristic as it helps people visualise how big / powerful they are.

The unit pounds originated from the Roman ‘libra’ (hence the abbreviated ‘lb’). The libra, which is Latin for scales or balance, was an ancient Roman unit used to measure mass and was equivalent to approximately 328.9 grams. The libra was originally split into 12 ounces (or unciae).

Random fact: Some cannons, such as the Smoothbore cannon, are based on the imperial pounds of circular solid iron balls of the diameters that fit the barrels. For example, a cannon that fires 12-pound ball is called a twelve-pounder.

The tonne is a unit of mass (acceptable for use as weight on Earth) and is a non-SI metric unit. It has the symbol t.

1 tonne is equal to 1000 kg. In the US it is called a metric ton (to avoid confusion with other similarly named units like the short ton, the long ton and the register ton. It is equal to approximately 2204.6 lbs.

Tonne is the correct spelling in England and France although ton is acceptable across the world. Before the establishment as an SI-derivative (or metrication), the ton (or imperial ton) was equal to 2240 avoirdupois pounds (or 20 hundredweight). This is only 16 kg different from the up to date (metric) tonne as we know it today.

A car weighs about a tonne.
