How to Convert Henries to Kilohenries

conversion scale showing henries and equivalent kilohenries electrical inductance values

To convert a henry measurement to a kilohenry measurement, divide the electrical inductance by the conversion ratio. One kilohenry is equal to 1,000 henries, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilohenries = henries ÷ 1,000

The electrical inductance in kilohenries is equal to the henries divided by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 henries to kilohenries using the formula above.
5,000 H = (5,000 ÷ 1,000) = 5 kH

Henries and kilohenries are both units used to measure electrical inductance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Henries

One henry is equal to the inductance of a conductor in which there is one volt of electromotive force when the current through the conductor is increased by one ampere per second.[1]

The henry is the SI derived unit for electrical inductance in the metric system. Henries can be abbreviated as H, for example 1 henry can be written as 1 H.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology recommends using "henries" as the plural form of the unit, however the usage of "henrys" is also common.[2]

Kilohenries

One kilohenry is equal to 1,000 henries, which are the inductance of a conductor with one volt of electromotive force when the current is increased by one ampere per second.

The kilohenry is a multiple of the henry, which is the SI derived unit for electrical inductance. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilohenries can be abbreviated as kH, for example 1 kilohenry can be written as 1 kH.
