A kilogram(kg) is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI) and it was originally defined as the mass of one liter of water.
While a tonne(t) is a metric unit of mass equal to 1,000 kilograms.
Formula to convert tonnes to kilograms.
To convert t to kg, we first need to know their relationship which states that 1 t is equivalent to 1000 kg.
Therefore, to convert tonnes to kilograms we multiply the tonnes by 1000.
Mass in kg = Mass in t x 1000
Convert 4.8t to kg.
= 4.8 x 1000
