## How to Convert Kilosiemens to Microsiemens

To convert a measurement in kilosiemens to a measurement in microsiemens, multiply the electrical conductance by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000,000 microsiemens/kilosiemens.

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

microsiemens = kilosiemens × 1,000,000,000

The electrical conductance in microsiemens is equal to the electrical conductance in kilosiemens multiplied by 1,000,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilosiemens to microsiemens using the formula above.
microsiemens = (5 kS × 1,000,000,000) = 5,000,000,000 μS

### How Many Microsiemens Are in a Kilosiemens?

There are 1,000,000,000 microsiemens in a kilosiemens, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 kS = 1,000,000,000 μS

## What Is a Kilosiemens?

The kilosiemens is the SI defined unit equal to the kilomho. One kilosiemens is the electrical conductance equal to 1,000 siemens, which are equal to one ampere per volt.

The kilosiemens is a multiple of the siemens, which is the SI derived unit for electrical conductance. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for thousands, or 103. Kilosiemens can be abbreviated as kS; for example, 1 kilosiemens can be written as 1 kS.

## What Is a Microsiemens?

The microsiemens is the SI defined unit equal to the micromho. One microsiemens is the electrical conductance equal to 1/1,000,000 of a siemens, which is equal to one ampere per volt.

The microsiemens is a multiple of the siemens, which is the SI derived unit for electrical conductance. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for millionths, or 10-6. Microsiemens can be abbreviated as μS; for example, 1 microsiemens can be written as 1 μS.
