## Conversion Formulas

Both grams and kilograms are units of mass, with the following relation between them:

**1 Kilogram = 1000 grams **

**1 Gram = 1/1000 Kilograms = 0.001 Kilograms**

Again, the "kilo" is one of the official unit prefixes in the International System (SI) of Units and means one thousand (1000 = 10^{3}) - so, one kilo-gram (kilo, kg) has 1000 grams (10^{3} grams).

Thus, in order to convert mass given in grams into the mass given in kilograms and vice versa, be sure to remember the following formulas:

**M _{kg} = M_{grams} / 1000**

**M _{grams} = M_{kg} * 1000**
