Convert kilograms to grams with this simple formula:

grams = kilograms × 1,000

Converting a kilogram weight measurement to a gram measurement involves multiplying the weight by the conversion ratio to find the result. One kilogram is equal to 1,000 grams, so to convert simply multiply by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilograms to grams using the formula above.
5 kg = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 g

Understanding the Metric System

The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.

Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:

  • “kilo” – 1,000x larger
  • “hecto” – 100x larger
  • “deca” – 10x larger
  • “deci” – 10x smaller
  • “centi” – 100x smaller
  • “milli” – 1,000x smaller

There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”
The u in Until refers to the base unit.
