wikipedia - 25 Aug 2019
*The equivalent units columns use the short scale large-number naming system currently used in most English-language countries, e.g. 1 billion = 1,000 million = 1,000,000,000. †Values in the equivalent short and long tons columns are rounded to five significant figures. See Conversions for exact values. ǂThough non-standard, the symbol "kt" is also used for knot, a unit of speed for aircraft and sea-going vessels, and should not be confused with kilotonne.
