Kilograms to Tons

It is a conversion calculator that is used to convert the mass in kilograms (Kg) to mass in tons (t). It uses a simple interface with a single text field and two active controls. When using the calculator, the first procedure is to enter the value in Kilograms in the blank text field and then click the "Convert" button. It is the control which executes the conversion from kilograms to tons.

The result in tons will be shown in the panel below the two controls. This calculator also indicates the method used in the conversion of kilograms to tons. The "Reset" button enhances the efficiency of the calculator since it can only perform one conversion at a time.  It erases all data of the previous calculations from the converter with a single click. The "Reset" button is used when you want to carry out new conversions from kilograms to tons.

Example

Convert 200 kilograms to tons

Solution

First, enter the value in kilograms (200) in the blank text field. Initiate the conversion by pressing the "Convert" button and the results will be displayed as;

Tons: 0.2 tons (t)

Calculation:

= 200 kg / 1000

= 0.2 t 

How to convert kilograms to tons

1 Kg = (1/1000) t = 0.001 t

Therefore, one kilogram is equivalent to 0.001 tons

The mass in tons is calculated by dividing the mass in kilograms by 1000. This can be expressed as;

M (t) = M (Kg) / 1000

Using the example above;

Convert 200 kilograms to tons

The calculation will be;

= 200 Kg / 1000

= 0.2 t

The Kilograms to Ton's conversion table is used to determine the conversions of common values from kilograms to tons on a scale of 0 Kg to 1000 kg.
