Ton has two meanings.
- A unit of volume equal to 13.5 cubic meters. It is derived from the volume of a ton (mass) of liquid hydrogen, the fuel used by starships.
- Ton (or tonne) is a unit of mass equal to one thousand kilograms.
Where it is important to distinguish between the two the former is refered to as a dTon (for displacement Ton) and the latter as an sTon (for standard Ton).
