Kilonewton (abbreviation: kN): is the International System of Units (SI) derived unit of force where 1 kN = 1000 N. It is named after Isaac Newton in recognition of his work on classical mechanics, specifically Newton's second law of motion.

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).

How to Convert Kilonewton to Short Tons

Example: How many Short tons are equivalent to 30.38 kilonewton?


As;


1 kilonewton = 0.1123728887518 Short tons


30.38 kilonewton = Y Short tons


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


Y equals 30.38 times 0.1123728887518 over 1


(i.e.) Y = 30.38 * 0.1123728887518 / 1 = 3.4138883602798 Short tons


Answer is: 3.4138883602798 Short tons are equivalent to 30.38 kilonewton.
