The expression, “a ton of money” is constantly thrown around, but did you ever wonder just how much money it would take in bills to actually weigh a ton? Because no one would actually withdrawal a million dollars and weigh it, math comes into the equation.
If a single dollar bill is weighed, it roughly comes out to a gram. Ten dollar bills equal 9.83 grams, so a million dollar bills would roughly weigh a thousand kilograms, or one metric ton. However, some more math is necessary.
A kilogram is around 2.2 pounds, so 1000 kilograms would result in just over 2200 pounds, which results in around a ton. So this means if you say I have a ton of money, you literally have a million dollars!
