# Convert 1 mcg to t

In this article I will show you how to convert 1 micrograms into metric tonnes. Throughout the explanation below I might also call it 1 mcg to t. They are the same thing!

## How to Convert Micrograms to Metric tonnes

A microgram is smaller than a metric tonne. I know that a mcg is smaller than a t because of something called conversion factors.

Put very simply, a conversion factor is a number that can be used to change one set of units to another, by multiplying or dividing it. So when we need to convert 1 micrograms into metric tonnes, we use a conversion factor to get the answer.

The conversion factor for mcg to t is:

1 mcg = 1.0E-12 t

Now that we know what the conversion factor is, we can easily calculate the conversion of 1 mcg to t by multiplying `1.0E-12` by the number of micrograms we have, which is 1.

1 x 1.0E-12 = 1.0E-12 t

So, the answer to the question "what is 1 micrograms in metric tonnes?" is 1.0E-12 t.
