Updated on by Stefan Banse

Here you can convert the Unit of weight Ton into the unit Kilogram and vice versa you can convert Kilogram into Ton. By clicking the "Swap units" icon, you will always obtain the desired conversion in the calculation result, i.e., t to kg or kg to t. With the following calculator you can also calculate any other Unit of weight.

The unit ton belongs to the metric system and is derived from the basic unit kilogram. 1 kilogram is equivalent to 0.001 tons, and 1 ton is equivalent to 1 000 kilograms.

According to the conversion into kilograms, the ton is defined in national systems of units and standards.

The kilogram is the basic unit of mass, i.e., weight. Since 1889 it has been defined by the mass of the international prototype kilogram or original kilogram. This is a cylinder made of platinum-iridium, which is kept in a safe by the International Office of Weights and Measures in Paris.

All other units of mass or weight in the metric system are derived from the kilogram (e.g., 1 t = 1 000 kg, 1 kg = 1 000 g).
