#### Kilograms to Milligrams

The kilogram (also kilogramme) is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI), the current metric system, having the unit symbol kg. It is a widely used measure in science, engineering and commerce worldwide, and is often simply called a kilo in everyday speech.The kg is defined as being equal to the mass of the International Prototype of the Kilogram (IPK), a block of platinum-iridium alloy manufactured in 1889 and stored at the International Bureau of Weights and Measures in Sèvres, France.

It is the only SI unit that is defined by a physical object rather than a fundamental physical property that can be reproduced in laboratories.

A milligram is a unit of weight and mass that is based on the SI (International System of Units) base unit of mass, the kilogram. It is equal to 1/1,000 grams, or 1/1,000,000 kilograms.

#### How to convert Kilograms to Milligrams

1 gram (kg) is equal to 1000000 milligrams (mg).

1 kg = 106 mg = 1000000 mg

The mass m in milligrams (mg) is equal to the mass m in kilograms (kg) times 1000000:

m(mg) = m(kg) × 106 = m(kg) × 1000000

#### Example

Convert 5 kg to milligrams:

m(mg) = 5 kg × 1000000 = 5000000 mg
