What is a metric ton? Is it bigger or smaller than a normal ton? :?

It is properly called a Mg, or mega gram :)

It's about 10% bigger than a short ton, and a teensy bit smaller than a long ton.

And nowhere close to the heavy $hit ton

Specifically, 2204.62 pounds.  A lot easier is 1.1 short tons, at least for me, as that can be calculated in my head.

I've never heard "megagram". although that would be correct.

I have seen "megameter" and "gigameter", but not often.
