## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from grams to kilograms is 0.001, which means that 1 gram is equal to 0.001 kilograms:

1 g = 0.001 kg

To convert 1 gram into kilograms we have to multiply 1 by the conversion factor in order to get the mass amount from grams to kilograms. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 g → 0.001 kg

1 g → M_{(kg)}

Solve the above proportion to obtain the mass *M* in kilograms:

M_{(kg)} = 1 g × 0.001 kg

M_{(kg)} = 0.001 kg

The final result is:

1 g → 0.001 kg

We conclude that **1 gram is equivalent to 0.001 kilograms**:

1 gram = 0.001 kilograms

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 kilogram is equal to 1000 × 1 gram**.

Another way is saying that *1 gram is equal to 1 ÷ 1000 kilograms*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **one gram is approximately zero point zero zero one kilograms**:

1 g ≅ 0.001 kg

An alternative is also that *one kilogram is approximately one thousand times one gram*.
