Kiloamperes to Amperes Conversion
Enter the electric current in kiloamperes below to get the value converted to amperes.
How to Convert Kiloamperes to Amperes
To convert a kiloampere measurement to an ampere measurement, multiply the electric current by the conversion ratio.
Since one kiloampere is equal to 1,000 amperes, you can use this simple formula to convert:
The electric current in amperes is equal to the kiloamperes multiplied by 1,000.
How Many Amperes are in a Kiloampere?
There are 1,000 amperes in a kiloampere, which is why we use this value in the formula above.
1 kA = 1,000 A
Kiloamperes and amperes are both units used to measure electric current. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
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 103. 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.
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.
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.
IA = VVRΩ
