  • chemistry -

    You need to convert 2.60 x 10^15 short tons to pounds. Convert pounds to kg. Convert kg to metric tons.
    2.60 x 10^15 s.tons x (1000 lb/1 s.ton) x (1 kg/2.2045 lbs) x (1 metric ton/1000 kg) = ??
    Check my thinking. Look through the conversions and see that s.tons cancel with s. tons, lb cancel lbs, kg cancel with kg, and the only unit left is metric tons.
