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 = 103) - so, one kilo-gram (kilo, kg) has 1000 grams (103 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:

Mkg = Mgrams / 1000

Mgrams = Mkg * 1000
