How to Convert Long Tons to Kilograms

Scales are used to measure weight

To convert a long ton measurement to a kilogram measurement, multiply the weight by the conversion ratio. One long ton is equal to 1,016.0469 kilograms, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilograms = long tons × 1,016.0469

The weight in kilograms is equal to the long tons multiplied by 1,016.0469.

For example, here's how to convert 5 long tons to kilograms using the formula above.
5 lt = (5 × 1,016.0469) = 5,080.2345 kg

Long Tons

One long ton is equal to 2,240 pounds and is mostly used in the United Kingdom as a unit of mass/weight.[1] Long tons are not the same as the short ton, which is used mostly in the United States, or the metric ton which is used throughout the world.

The long ton is an imperial unit of weight. A long ton is sometimes also referred to as an imperial ton or displacement ton. Long tons can be abbreviated as lt, and are also sometimes abbreviated as t. For example, 1 long ton can be written as 1 lt or 1 t.

Kilograms

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.[2] 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.
