Grams to Kilograms

A gram is the mass/weight equal to 1/1,000 of a kilogram and is roughly equivalent to the mass of one cubic centimeter of water.

The gram, or gramme, is an SI unit of weight in the metric system. Grams can be abbreviated as g; for example, 1 gram can be written as 1 g.

The definition of the kilogram changed in 2019. One kilogram was previously equal to the mass of the platinum-iridium bar, known as the International Prototype of the Kilogram, which was stored in SÃ¨vres, France.

The 2019 SI brochure now defines the kilogram using the Planck constant, and it is defined using the meter and second. It is roughly equal to the mass of 1,000 cubic centimeters of water.

The kilogram, or kilogramme, is the SI base unit for weight and is also a multiple of the gram. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilograms can be abbreviated as kg; for example, 1 kilogram can be written as 1 kg.

How to convert Grams to Kilograms

1 gram (g) is equal to 0.001 kilograms (kg).

1 g = (1/1000) kg = 0.001 kg

The mass m in kilograms (kg) is equal to the mass m in grams (g) divided by 1000:

m(kg) = m(g) / 1000

Example

Convert 5 g to kilograms:

m(kg) = 5 g / 1000 = 0.005 kg
