1) Unit of weight measurement: 1000 kilograms (metric ton) or 2,240 lbs (long ton) or 2000 lbs (short ton). Unit of cubic measurement, mainly used to express the cubic capacity of a vessel. (GRT) 2) Unit of weight or measurement used as a basis for the calculation of freights (freight ton).

The code identifying the components in a fertilizer mixture: nitrogen (N), phosphorus pentoxide (P), and potassium oxide (K). Fertilizers are graded in the order N-P-K, with the numbers indicating the percentage of the total weight of each component. For example, 5-10-10 represents a mixture containing by weight 5% nitrogen, 10% phosphorus pentoxide, and 10% potassium oxide. and a detector downstream measures the amount of decay of the resonance, thereby sensing fluid velocity.

[INDENG] That portion of the working area that is readily accessible to the hands of a worker when in his normal states that the difference between the specific heat of a gas at constant pressure and its specific heat at constant volume is equal to the gas constant divided by the molecular weight of the gas.

A method of determining the thermal expansion coefficient of a liquid, in which the apparent weight of a sinker when immersed in the liquid is measured for two different temperatures of the liquid.

The rule stating that sound insulation for a single wall is determined almost wholly by its weight per unit area; doubling the weight of the partition increases the insulation by 5 decibels.
