## 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 5 grams into kilograms we have to multiply 5 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

5 g → M(kg)

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

M(kg) = 5 g × 0.001 kg

M(kg) = 0.005 kg

The final result is:

5 g → 0.005 kg

We conclude that 5 grams is equivalent to 0.005 kilograms:

5 grams = 0.005 kilograms

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 kilogram is equal to 200 × 5 grams.

Another way is saying that 5 grams is equal to 1 ÷ 200 kilograms.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that five grams is approximately zero point zero zero five kilograms:

5 g ≅ 0.005 kg

An alternative is also that one kilogram is approximately two hundred times five grams.
