It depends upon which "ton" you mean

    1 long (or gross) ton = 2240 pounds (UK)    1 short (or net) ton = 2000 pounds (US)    1 tonne (i.e., a metric ton) = 2204.6 pounds    In the United States, when people say "a ton," they're thinking the short ton, or 2000 pounds.

Pound is a unit of measurement. It is also mainly used in the United States and United Kingdom. It is abbreviated as lb and is used to measure mass. Its size varies from system to system. The most commonly used pound in the present day is avoirdupois pound. A pound is equal to 16 ounces or exactly 453.59237 grams.    A ton is also a unit of measurement for weight and mass but is used only to denote objects that are very huge and heavy. It is much larger than even kilogram. It gets its name from Old English. There are three types of tons i.e. Short ton, long ton and metric ton. Pound and ton are usually not used to measure the same objects. A ton is equal to 2000 pounds as per short ton, 2,240 pounds as per the long ton and 2,204.6 pounds according to a metric ton.

There are 20 hundredweigts in a ton, the hundredweight is 112 pounds in the Imperial system, the lazy American system calls it 100 lbs, so the American short ton is 2,000 lbs, but a *real* ton is 2240 lbs. 14 lbs to the stone, 8 stones to the cwt.

How can so many have got this wrong?
112 lbs in a hundredweight
20 hundredweights in a ton
Therefore one ton = 112 lbs x 20 = 2240 lbs
