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.
