## How to Convert Kiloohms to Gigaohms

To convert a measurement in kiloohms to a measurement in gigaohms, divide the electrical resistance by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 kiloohms/gigaohm.

Since one gigaohm is equal to 1,000,000 kiloohms, you can use this simple formula to convert:

gigaohms = kiloohms ÷ 1,000,000

The electrical resistance in gigaohms is equal to the electrical resistance in kiloohms divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 kiloohms to gigaohms using the formula above.
gigaohms = (5,000,000 kΩ ÷ 1,000,000) = 5 GΩ

## What Is a Kiloohm?

One kiloohm is equal to 1,000 ohms. A kiloohm is the resistance across a conductor with an electrical potential difference of 1,000 volts with one ampere of current flowing through it.

The kiloohm is a multiple of the ohm, which is the SI derived unit for electrical resistance. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for thousands, or 103. Kiloohms can be abbreviated as kΩ; for example, 1 kiloohm can be written as 1 kΩ.

## What Is a Gigaohm?

One gigaohm is equal to 1,000,000,000 ohms, which is the resistance between two points of a conductor with one ampere of current at one volt.

The gigaohm is a multiple of the ohm, which is the SI derived unit for electrical resistance. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for billions, or 109. Gigaohms can be abbreviated as GΩ; for example, 1 gigaohm can be written as 1 GΩ.
