## 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 500 grams into kilograms we have to multiply 500 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

500 g → M(kg)

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

M(kg) = 500 g × 0.001 kg

M(kg) = 0.5 kg

The final result is:

500 g → 0.5 kg

We conclude that 500 grams is equivalent to 0.5 kilograms:

500 grams = 0.5 kilograms

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 kilogram is equal to 2 × 500 grams.

Another way is saying that 500 grams is equal to 1 ÷ 2 kilograms.

## Approximate result

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

500 g ≅ 0.5 kg

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