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).

How to Convert Kilopounds to Metric Tonnes

Example: How many metric tonnes are equivalent to 23.59 kilopounds?


1 kilopounds = 0.45359290943564 metric tonnes

23.59 kilopounds = Y metric tonnes

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

Y equals 23.59 times 0.45359290943564 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 23.59 * 0.45359290943564 / 1 = 10.700256733587 metric tonnes

Answer is: 10.700256733587 metric tonnes are equivalent to 23.59 kilopounds.
