One **kiloton** (**kt**) is the equivalent of **1,000 tons** (factor:^{103}). A kiloton is therefore a unit of measurement for particularly large masses. Only the megaton (1,000,000 tons or^{106}) and the gigaton (1,000,000,000 tons or^{109}) are larger.

The conversion from tons to kilotons is a fundamental concept in the metric system of measurement that is often used in science, engineering and everyday language. Both are units for measuring mass.

A ton, often referred to as a metric ton, is a unit of mass equal to 1000 kilograms. A kiloton is a unit of mass equal to 1000 tons. The prefix "kilo-" in the metric system means "thousand", therefore a kiloton represents a thousand tons.

So if you want to convert tons to kilotons, you divide the number of tons by 1000. For example, if you have 2000 tons and want to know how many kilotons that is, you would divide 2000 by 1000 to get 2 kilotons.

It is important to note that the metric system is based on the decimal system, which means that all conversions are done by powers of ten. Therefore, converting tons to kilotons (and vice versa) is possible by simply dividing or multiplying by 1000.
