Enter the total power (kW) and the total weight (tons) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Kw Per Ton. 

Kw Per Ton Formula

KWT = P / W


  • KWT is the Kw Per Ton (kW/tons)
  • P is the total power (kW)
  • W is the total weight (tons)

To calculate Kw Per Ton, divide the power output in kilowatts by the weight in tons.

How to Calculate Kw Per Ton?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Kw Per Ton.

  1. First, determine the total power (kW). 
  2. Next, determine the total weight (tons). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = KWT = P / W.
  4. Finally, calculate the Kw Per Ton.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total power (kW) = 4000

total weight (tons) = 200
