To convert 48 grams into kilograms we have to multiply 48 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

48 g → M(kg)

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

M(kg) = 48 g × 0.001 kg

M(kg) = 0.048 kg

The final result is:

48 g → 0.048 kg

We conclude that 48 grams is equivalent to 0.048 kilograms:

48 grams = 0.048 kilograms
