## 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 12.5 grams into kilograms we have to multiply 12.5 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

12.5 g → M(kg)

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

M(kg) = 12.5 g × 0.001 kg

M(kg) = 0.0125 kg

The final result is:

12.5 g → 0.0125 kg

We conclude that 12.5 grams is equivalent to 0.0125 kilograms:

12.5 grams = 0.0125 kilograms ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 kilogram is equal to 80 × 12.5 grams.

Another way is saying that 12.5 grams is equal to 1 ÷ 80 kilograms.

## Approximate result

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

12.5 g ≅ 0.013 kg

An alternative is also that one kilogram is approximately eighty times twelve point five grams.
