#### Milligrams to Kilograms

The milligram is the mass equal to 1/1,000 of a gram, or 0.0154 grains. The milligram, or milligramme, is an SI unit of weight in the metric system. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. Milligrams can be abbreviated as mg; for example, 1 milligram can be written as 1 mg.

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 Milligrams to Kilograms

1 milligram (mg) is equal to 1/1000000 kilograms (kg).

1 mg = (1/1000000) kg = 10-6 kg = 0.000001 kg

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

m(kg) = m(mg) / 106

= m(mg) / 1000000

#### Example

Convert 5mg to kilograms:

m(kg) = 5 mg / 1000000 = 0.000005 kg
