Definitions:

Metric Tonne (abbreviations: metric ton, or metric tons, or ton, or tons): is a SI metric unit of mass, also known as tonne. Although, it is used principally as a unit of mass, it has acquired a number of meanings and uses over long years. It is equivalent to 1,000 kilograms (Kg), or one megagram (Mg), or approximately 2,204.6 pounds (lb), or 1.10 short tons (US), or 0.984 long tons (imperial).

Kilogram (abbreviations: kg, or kgm): is a SI (metric) system unit of mass (IPK, also known as "Le Grand K" or "Big K") and equivalent to 1/1000 of one gram. Where, at the temperature of melting ice, one gram is the absolute weight of a volume equal to the hundredth part of a metre cube of pure water.

How to Convert Metric Tonnes to Kilograms

Example: How many kilograms are equivalent to 37 metric tonnes?


As;


1 metric tonnes = 1000 kilograms


37 metric tonnes = Y kilograms


Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;


Y equals 37 times 1000 over 1


(i.e.) Y = 37 * 1000 / 1 = 37000 kilograms


Answer is: 37000 kilograms are equivalent to 37 metric tonnes.
