## How to Convert Kiloamperes to Amperes

To convert a kiloampere measurement to an ampere measurement, multiply the electric current by the conversion ratio. One kiloampere is equal to 1,000 amperes, so use this simple formula to convert:

The electric current in amperes is equal to the kiloamperes multiplied by 1,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 kiloamperes to amperes using the formula above.

Kiloamperes and amperes are both units used to measure electric current. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Kiloamperes

One kiloampere is equal to 1,000 amperes, which are the electrical current equal to the flow of one coulomb per second.

The kiloampere is a multiple of the ampere, which is the SI base unit for electric current. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 10^{3}. A kiloampere is sometimes also referred to as a kiloamp. Kiloamperes can be abbreviated as *kA*; for example, 1 kiloampere can be written as 1 kA.

## Amperes

The ampere, commonly referred to as an "amp," is the electrical current constant equal to the flow of one coulomb per second.

The ampere was previously defined as a constant current that when passed through two straight and parallel conductors that are spaced one meter apart, will produce a force equal to 0.0000002 newtons per meter of length.

In 2019, the ampere was redefined as the electric current corresponding to the flow of 1/(1.602 176 634 × 10^{-19}) elementary charges per second.^{[1]}

The ampere is the SI base unit for electric current in the metric system. An ampere is sometimes also referred to as an amp. Amperes can be abbreviated as *A*; for example, 1 ampere can be written as 1 A.

Ohm's Law states the current between two points on a conductor is proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance. Using Ohm's Law, it's possible to express the current in amperes as an expression using resistance and voltage.

I_{A} = V_{V}R_{Ω}

The current in amperes is equal to the potential difference in volts divided by the resistance in ohms.
