Chart: A chart of conversions from pounds (lbs) to tons (T). The chart reads:
2,000 pounds=1 ton
50,000 pounds=25 tons
100,000 pounds=50 tons
200,000 pounds=100 tons
250,000 pounds=125 tons
500,000 pounds=250 tons

Since using a chart to compare pounds to tons makes conversion easier, use the chart to figure out how much your plane weighs in tons. Remember, the Boeing 747 weighs 500,000 pounds.

500,000 lbs= ?T

Click on how many tons that is.
