## 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 8 grams into kilograms we have to multiply 8 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

8 g → M_{(kg)}

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

M_{(kg)} = 8 g × 0.001 kg

M_{(kg)} = 0.008 kg

The final result is:

8 g → 0.008 kg

We conclude that **8 grams is equivalent to 0.008 kilograms**:

8 grams = 0.008 kilograms

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 kilogram is equal to 125 × 8 grams**.

Another way is saying that *8 grams is equal to 1 ÷ 125 kilograms*.

## Approximate result

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

8 g ≅ 0.008 kg

An alternative is also that *one kilogram is approximately one hundred twenty-five times eight grams*.
