1 g = 0.001 kg

To convert 420 grams into kilograms we have to multiply 420 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

420 g → M(kg)

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

M(kg) = 420 g × 0.001 kg

M(kg) = 0.42 kg

The final result is:

420 g → 0.42 kg

We conclude that 420 grams is equivalent to 0.42 kilograms:

420 grams = 0.42 kilograms ## Alternative conversion
