**2 Ton = 7.033705 kW**, Use our **ton to kw calculator** to convert the cooling capacity from **tons of refrigeration (TR)** to **kilowatts (kW)** using **P (kW) = P (RT) x 3.5168525** formula.

The term “

ton” in this context refers to a unit ofrefrigeration, not weight. One ton of refrigeration is defined as the amount of heat required to melt2,000 pounds (907 kg)of ice in24 hours. This is equivalent to about12,000 BTU/houror3.517 kWof heat removal.

An air conditioning unit rated at **5 tons**, using the conversion factor, you can calculate its power in kilowatts:

**5 tons x 3.51685 kW/ton = 17.58425 kW**

A **5-ton AC unit** has a power output of approximately **17.58 kW**.

A

5-ton air conditioning unithas a cooling capacity equivalent to melting10,000 poundsof ice in24 hours.

## Ton To Kw Conversion Formula

The formula for converting tons to kilowatts is:

**kW = Tons × 3.517**

**Where:**

P (kW)is the power in kilowatts.P (RT)is the power in refrigeration tons.

This formula is derived from the definition of a ton of refrigeration, where **1 ton equals 3.517 kW**.

To convert **2 tons** to kilowatts:

**P (kW) = 2 RT x 3.5168525 = 7.033705 kW**

This means that **2 tons of refrigeration** is equivalent to approximately **7.03 kW**.

To convert **3 tons** to kW:

- kW = 3 × 3.517
- kW =
**10.551 kW**

## How do you convert ton to kW?

- Identify the cooling capacity in
tons.- Multiply the tonnage by
3.517.- The result is the equivalent power in
kilowatts.

Let’s convert **7.5 tons** to kW:

Cooling capacity:

7.5 tonsMultiply by

3.517: 7.5 × 3.517 =26.3775Result:

7.5 tonsis equivalent to26.3775 kW

## How much kW is in one ton AC?

One ton of air conditioning is equivalent to **3.517 kW** of cooling capacity. This is a fixed conversion rate based on the definition of a ton of refrigeration.

A **1-ton air conditioner** can remove **3.517 kW** of heat from a space per hour. The electrical power consumed by the AC unit to achieve this cooling effect is typically less due to the **Coefficient of Performance (COP)** or **Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER)** of the system.

If an AC unit has a COP of **3**, it means:

- Cooling capacity:
**3.517 kW** - Electrical power consumption:
**3.517 / 3 ≈ 1.172 kW**
