How much does one metric ton weigh?

Answer

One ton is a measurement of the mass of an object, not the weight which also factors gravity. An object with a mass of one ton on earth will still have a mass of one ton in space, where it is weightless. One metric ton is equal to 1,000 kg, or 2,200 lbs.
