No such conversion is possible; these units measure different quantities (length vs. weight).

X meters = Y metric tonnes.

Can't convert directly without knowing a volume and a density.

Multiply first X[meters] by Y[meters], then Z[meters], to get a Volume in cubic-meters or [m^3]

Choose an applicable Density in [kg/m^3]

Then multiply...

Volume [m^3] x Density [kg/m^3] x 1/1000 [metric-ton/kg] = ???? [metric-tons]

My (volt) meter weighs 1 pound; 1 metric tonne is 2205 pounds; 1/2205= 0.0004531 metric tonnes. One (volt) meter= 0.0004531 metric tonnes.

you could start with a bushel (2152.42 cubic inches) which converts to 0.0352718443 cubic meters.

A bushel of wheat weighs in at 60 lbs which converts to 0.0272155422 metric tons.

one metric ton weighs approximately 2204.62262 pounds

36.74371 bushels to a metric ton

1.2960167 cubic meters in a metric ton

If my math is correct this is a roundabout way of getting there.

the cube root of 1.2960167 is 1.09027704

1.09027704m x 1.09027704m x 1.09027704m equals mow many meters in a metric ton
