Metric Tons to Kilograms

One tonne is equal to 1,000 kilograms or 2,204.6 pounds, and is used throughout the world as a unit of mass/weight. One tonne is also equal to 1 megagram. The metric ton should not be confused with short tons, used primarily in the US, or long tons, used primarily in the UK.

The metric ton is an SI accepted unit for weight for use with the metric system. A metric ton is sometimes also referred to as a tonne. Metric tons can be abbreviated as t, and are also sometimes abbreviated as T, Te, or MT. For example, 1 metric ton can be written as 1 t, 1 T, 1 Te, or 1 MT. In the US the unit is referred to as the metric ton, while the rest of the world refers to it as the tonne. Most often it's still pronounced as tun, but it is sometimes pronounced tunny.

The definition of the kilogram changed in 2019. One kilogram was previously equal to the mass of the platinum-iridium bar, known as the International Prototype of the Kilogram, which was stored in Sèvres, France. The 2019 SI brochure now defines the kilogram using the Planck constant, and it is defined using the meter and second. It is roughly equal to the mass of 1,000 cubic centimeters of water.

The kilogram, or kilogramme, is the SI base unit for weight and is also a multiple of the gram. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilograms can be abbreviated as kg; for example, 1 kilogram can be written as 1 kg.

The stone (st) is a unit of measure equal to 14 pounds (lb) avoirdupois, or 6.3503 kilograms (kg). The plural of stone is also stone.

The stone measurement remains widely used in Britain, Australia, and Ireland for measuring human body weight. In the U.K. people may be said to weigh, e.g., "11 stone 4" (11 stones and 4 pounds), rather than "72 kilograms", or "158 pounds" as in the U.S.

A pound (symbol: lb) is a unit of mass used in the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. The international avoirdupois pound (the common pound used today) is defined as exactly 0.45359237 kilograms. The avoirdupois pound is equivalent to 16 avoirdupois ounces.

How to convert Stones to Pounds

1 stone (st) is equal to 14 pounds (lb).

1 st = 14 lb

The mass m in pounds (lb) is equal to the mass m in stones (st) times 14:

m(lb) = m(st) × 14


Convert 5 st to pounds:

m(lb) = 5 st × 14 = 70 lb
