## 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 40.2 grams into kilograms we have to multiply 40.2 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

40.2 g → M(kg)

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

M(kg) = 40.2 g × 0.001 kg

M(kg) = 0.0402 kg

The final result is:

40.2 g → 0.0402 kg

We conclude that 40.2 grams is equivalent to 0.0402 kilograms:

40.2 grams = 0.0402 kilograms

## Alternative conversion
