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 1040 grams into kilograms we have to multiply 1040 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

1040 g → M(kg)

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

M(kg) = 1040 g × 0.001 kg

M(kg) = 1.04 kg

The final result is:

1040 g → 1.04 kg

We conclude that 1040 grams is equivalent to 1.04 kilograms:

1040 grams = 1.04 kilograms
