What is a t

In homework L35 it asks you to use a mass of 2.50 t. What is the conversion from t to grams?

t probably means ton. The conversion would be 1 ton=1,000,000 grams. Hope this is helpful!

t means tons, so to convert it into a unit that can be used with the molar mass you would use the following conversions:
1 ton= 1,000 kg
1 kg= 1,000 mg

since the problem stated that there was 2.15 t, you would use the following unit conversions:
2.15t ( 1000 kg/t) (1000 mg/kg)
= 2.15 x 10^6 g
