To convert 12 grams into kilograms we have to multiply 12 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 g → M(kg)

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

M(kg) = 12 g × 0.001 kg

M(kg) = 0.012 kg

The final result is:

12 g → 0.012 kg

We conclude that 12 grams is equivalent to 0.012 kilograms:

12 grams = 0.012 kilograms ## Alternative conversion
