How much does a ton weigh?

August 10, 2017



It's not unusual to describe a heavy

object in tonnage.

But no one has any idea how much a ton is, really. Is 250 tons a lot?


250 tons is 500,000 pounds. About the weight of 8 houses. Or the

weight of 100,000 bricks.


Wich is a solid stack of brick 10 x 10 by 1,000 bricks high.


It would take you more than 2 months, working 24 hour a day, a brick

a minute, to unload that many bricks.


Facts are facts, but images resonate.
