# How to Convert Tons to Kilograms Using Python?

Estimated read time 1 min read

To convert tons to kilograms in Python, you can use the following conversion factor: 1 ton = 1000 kilograms.

Here’s an example Python function that converts tons to kilograms:

``````def tons_to_kilograms(tons):
kilograms = tons * 1000
return kilograms``````

In this function, the input parameter `tons` represents the value in tons that you want to convert. The function multiplies the input value by 1000 to convert it to kilograms and assigns the result to the variable `kilograms`. Finally, the function returns the converted value.

You can use this function by calling it with the desired value in tons, like this:

``````tons_value = 2.5  # Example value in tons
kilograms_value = tons_to_kilograms(tons_value)
print(kilograms_value)``````

This will output the converted value in kilograms:

``2500.0``

Note that the output is a floating-point value because the multiplication operation involves a floating-point number (2.5) and an integer (1000). If you specifically want the output to be an integer, you can use the `int()` function to convert it:

``````tons_value = 2.5  # Example value in tons
kilograms_value = int(tons_to_kilograms(tons_value))
print(kilograms_value)``````

This will output:

``2500``
