How to convert 1 carat (ct) = 0.0000002 metric ton (t).
Carat (ct) is a unit of Weight used in Standard system.
Metric Ton (t) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system. Carats: A Unit of Weight
Carats are a unit of weight that are used for measuring gemstones and pearls. Carats are derived from the Arabic word qirat, which means a small weight or a seed. The symbol for carat is ct.
Definition of the Carat
The carat is defined as 200 milligrams, which is one fifth of a gram. The carat is divided into 100 points, which are each 2 milligrams. For example, a diamond that weighs 0.5 carat can also be expressed as 50 points or 100 milligrams.
The carat is not a legal unit of measurement in most countries, except for some that use the metric system, such as France, Belgium, Italy and Switzerland. In other countries, such as the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, the carat is used as a standard unit for the diamond industry.
How to Convert Carats
Carats can be converted to other units of weight by using conversion factors or formulas. Here are some examples of how to convert carats to other units of weight in the US customary system and the SI system:
 To convert carats to ounces, divide by 141.7476. For example, 10 ct = 10 / 141.7476 = 0.071 oz.
 To convert carats to pounds, divide by 2267.962. For example, 20 ct = 20 / 2267.962 = 0.009 lb.
 To convert carats to tons (short), divide by 4535923.7. For example, 50 ct = 50 / 4535923.7 = 0.000011 ton.
 To convert carats to grams, divide by 5. For example, 100 ct = 100 / 5 = 20 g.
 To convert carats to kilograms, divide by 5000. For example, 200 ct = 200 / 5000 = 0.04 kg.
 To convert carats to milligrams, multiply by 200. For example, 25 ct = 25 x 200 = 5000 mg.
Where Carats are Used
Carats are used in different countries and regions for different applications and purposes. Here are some examples of where carats are used:
 In most countries that use the metric system, carats are used for measuring gemstones and pearls, such as diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds and pearls.
 In the United States, carats are used for measuring gemstones and pearls, especially for diamonds and diamond jewelry.
 In Canada, Australia and New Zealand, carats are used for measuring gemstones and pearls, especially for diamonds and diamond jewelry.
 In China, carats are used for measuring gemstones and pearls, especially for jade and jade jewelry.
 In India, carats are used for measuring gemstones and pearls, especially for gold and gold jewelry.
History of Carats
Carats have a long history that dates back to ancient times. Here are some highlights of the history of carats:
 The carat was originally based on the weight of a carob seed, which was used as a counterweight in balance scales by ancient traders and jewelers. The carob seed was believed to have a uniform weight of about one fifth of a gram.
 The carat was used in different systems of measurement, such as the Roman system, the Byzantine system, the Arabic system and the Ottoman system. It varied from about 180 milligrams to about 220 milligrams depending on the region and the time period.
 The carat was standardized by international agreements in different periods of history. For example, in 1575 an agreement between France and England fixed the carat at 205 milligrams; in 1871 an agreement between Parisian jewelers fixed the carat at 205.3 milligrams; in 1907 an agreement between the International Committee of Weights and Measures fixed the carat at exactly 200 milligrams.

Metric Tons: A Unit of Weight
Metric tons are a unit of weight that are used for measuring large masses, such as vehicles, ships, and buildings. Metric tons are also known as tonnes or megagrams. The symbol for metric ton is t.
Definition of the Metric Ton
The metric ton is defined as 1000 kilograms, which is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI). The metric ton is also equal to one million grams or one billion milligrams.
The metric ton is equal to about 2204.6 avoirdupois pounds or 1.1023 short tons. The metric ton is also equal to about 0.9842 long tons or 0.9072 tonnesforce.
How to Convert Metric Tons
Metric tons can be converted to other units of weight by using conversion factors or formulas. Here are some examples of how to convert metric tons to other units of weight in the US customary system and the SI system:
 To convert metric tons to avoirdupois pounds, multiply by 2204.6226. For example, 10 t = 10 x 2204.6226 = 22046.226 lb.
 To convert metric tons to short tons, multiply by 1.1023. For example, 5 t = 5 x 1.1023 = 5.5115 st.
 To convert metric tons to long tons, multiply by 0.9842. For example, 20 t = 20 x 0.9842 = 19.684 lt.
 To convert metric tons to kilograms, multiply by 1000. For example, 15 t = 15 x 1000 = 15000 kg.
 To convert metric tons to grams, multiply by 1000000. For example, 25 t = 25 x 1000000 = 25000000 g.
 To convert metric tons to milligrams, multiply by 1000000000. For example, 30 t = 30 x 1000000000 = 30000000000 mg.
Where Metric Tons are Used
Metric tons are used in different countries and regions for different applications and purposes. Here are some examples of where metric tons are used:
 In most countries that use the SI system, metric tons are used for measuring weight, especially for large masses, such as vehicles, ships, and buildings.
 In the United States, metric tons are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for international trade and commerce.
 In Canada, Australia and New Zealand, metric tons are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for international trade and commerce.
 In the United Kingdom, metric tons are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for international trade and commerce.
 In India, metric tons are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for international trade and commerce.
History of Metric Tons
Metric tons have a relatively short history that dates back to the late 18th century. Here are some highlights of the history of metric tons:
 The metric ton was originally based on the weight of a cubic meter of water at its maximum density of four degrees Celsius, which was approximately equal to 1000 kilograms.
 The metric ton was part of the original metric system that was introduced in France in 1795 as a decimalbased system of measurement that was designed to replace the traditional units that varied from region to region.
 The metric ton was adopted by many countries around the world as part of the International System of Units (SI) that was established in 1960 as a universal system of measurement that was based on seven base units and several derived units.
 The metric ton was also referred to as the tonne or the megagram in some countries and contexts to distinguish it from the nonmetric units of the short ton and the long ton.
Example Conversions of Metric Tons to Other Units
Here are some examples of conversions of metric tons to other units of weight:
 1 t = 2204.6226 lb
 1 t = 1.1023 st
 1 t = 0.9842 lt
 1 t = 1000 kg
 1 t = 1000000 g
 1 t = 1000000000 mg
 1 t = 32.1507 oz t
 1 t = 643.0149 dwt
 1 t = 15432.3584 gr
 1 t = 0.001 kN
Metric Tons also can be marked as Tonnes (alternative British English spelling in UK).
