Kilos to tons

You probably know that one ton equals one thousand kilograms So, starting from this basis, we can easily calculate the formula we have to apply to go from kilograms to tons:

m(t) = m(kg) / 1000

By example,We are going to convert 500 kg to tons to see what the result is:

m(t) = m(kg) / 1000 = 500 Kg / 1000 = 0.5 tons.
