Convert kilograms to tons 

The calculator allows you to convert kilograms to tons (kilograms to tonnes). Perform the reverse calculation: convert tons to kilograms 
1 t = 1 000 kg 
To convert kilograms to metric tons (or tonnes), divide by 1 000. Example 1We are going to convert a mass m of 3000 kilograms to tons.Mass m = 3 000 kg 1 kg = 1 / 1 000 t m = 3 / 1 000 t = 3 t Other examplesTo convert kilograms to tons, you need to divide the number of kilograms by 1 000. Here are five examples:5 000 kilograms = 5 000 / 1 000 = 5 tons 12 000 kilograms = 12 000 / 1 000 = 12 tons 2 500 kilograms = 2 500 / 1 000 = 2.5 tons 8 000 kilograms = 8 000 / 1 000 = 8 tons 15 000 kilograms = 15 000 / 1000 = 15 tons To convert any number of kilograms to tons, you simply divide the number of kilograms by 1000 to get the equivalent weight in tons. A conversion table for kilograms (kg) to tons (t)
To read the table, you can use the headers to identify the columns. The first column represents the weight in kilograms, and the second column represents the weight in tons. Each row represents a different weight value, with the lefthand column showing the weight in kilograms and the righthand column showing the equivalent weight in tons. For example, to find the equivalent weight in tons for 40 kg, you would find the row that has "40" in the lefthand column, and then look at the righthand column to find "0.04 t". This means that 40 kilograms is equivalent to 0.04 ton. Kilogram (kg)The kilogram is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI). One kilogram is equal to 1 000 grams or 1 000 000 milligrams. The symbol for kilogram is "kg"."Kilo" is a prefix used in the International System of Units (SI) to denote a factor of 1 000. It is represented by the symbol "k". The prefix "kilo" is commonly used to indicate multiplication by 1 000 for units of measurement. Ton (t)The unit ton (t) is a metric unit of mass that is equivalent to 1 000 kilograms. A tonne is a unit of weight in the metric system, which is equal to 1000 kilograms. It is also referred to as a metric ton.
