# kilogram to ton

Here this is an article we will consider two basic units of mass conversion, well kilograms as SI unit and ton as one of the widely used groups considering a technical point. You can find the use of kilogram unit use in your day to day life and ton is mainly used in the industries; both these units have their significance, they are essential in day to day life and as well as in industries, where we take or give things in a vast amount.

## kilogram to ton

The best thing about both the unit’s kilograms and ton is that one unit is an SI unit and another unit is an industrial unit.

Considering kilogram, the kilogram is the unit of mass, which has its way of defining, the SI has defined the kilogram as the mass equal to a standard prototype. This standard prototype is represented by SI and which is accepted worldwide and is used as the means to measure mass.

Considering tons, well as we have said this earlier, a ton is an industrial unit, this means that the primary use of unit ton can be seen in industrial works only. Since there we deal with a large number of masses.

Well, one ton is equal to 1000 kilograms, this means you need to multiply the mass to that prototype thousand times to show its mass.

Hence we have that one ton is equal to 1000 kilograms, using this we can say that one kilogram is equal to 0.001 kilograms of mass. Therefore take the kilograms value and multiply it with 0.001 to change it in tons factor.

Check that while you are converting, that you are using a proper conversion factor.
