To convert 38 grams into kilograms we have to multiply 38 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

38 g → M(kg)

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

M(kg) = 38 g × 0.001 kg

M(kg) = 0.038 kg

The final result is:

38 g → 0.038 kg

We conclude that 38 grams is equivalent to 0.038 kilograms:

38 grams = 0.038 kilograms
