## How to go from kg 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.

As can be seen, the calculation is very simple, although, as we have said before, working with a magnitude as large as the ton **only makes sense for huge amounts of weight**.

## How to convert kilos to tons in Excel

Now that we know **convert kilos to tons with the formula**Let's see how the conversion is done in Excel.

To do this, open a new spreadsheet and type in an empty cell the following formula:

=kilos/1000

Where we have put the word "kilos" you must replace it with the amount of Kg you want to convert to tons. For example, if we want to know **how many tons is 1 Kg**the formula will be written as follows:

=1/1000

After pressing the Enter key, Excel will calculate that **in 1 Kg there are 0.001 tons**.

## How to go from tons to kilograms

The ton is a very large unit of weight, so much so that most of us don't use it in our daily lives because it doesn't make any sense. But how much is a ton in kilograms? To refresh our memory, we should know that **a ton is equal to 1,000 kilograms**.

From the above we can deduce that to go from tons to kilograms, it is enough with** multiply by a thousand** as shown in the following formula:

*m*_{(kg)} = *m*_{(t)} × 1000

By **example,**We are going to move to Kg a weight of 2 tons:

*m*_{(kg)} = *m*_{(t)} × 1000 = 2 tons x 1000 = 2000 Kg.

## Tons to kg in Excel

We will also see how **convert tons to kilograms using Excel**. In this case, we simply have to transfer the formula we have seen in the previous point to the Microsoft spreadsheet program.

=tons*1000

You just have to write the above function in an empty cell and replace the word "tons" with the amount of ton you want to convert to kg. For example, if we want to know how many kilos are in 5 tons, the formula to use will be the following:

=5*1000

Press the enter key to get the result. If you have done it right, Excel will calculate that **in 5 tons there are 5,000 kilograms**.
