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 3.8 grams into kilograms we have to multiply 3.8 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

3.8 g → M(kg)

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

M(kg) = 3.8 g × 0.001 kg

M(kg) = 0.0038 kg

The final result is:

3.8 g → 0.0038 kg

We conclude that 3.8 grams is equivalent to 0.0038 kilograms:

3.8 grams = 0.0038 kilograms
