Do you want to convert kiloohms to ohms?

## How to Convert Ohms to Kiloohms To convert an ohm measurement to a kiloohm measurement, divide the electrical resistance by the conversion ratio. One kiloohm is equal to 1,000 ohms, so use this simple formula to convert:

kiloohms = ohms ÷ 1,000

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

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

## Ohms

The ohm is the resistance between two points of an electrical conductor transmitting a current of one ampere when the potential difference is one volt.

The ohm is the SI derived unit for electrical resistance in the metric system. Ohms can be abbreviated as ; for example, 1 ohm can be written as 1 Ω.

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 resistance in ohms as an expression using current and voltage.

R = VVIA

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

## Kiloohms

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

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 103. Kiloohms can be abbreviated as kΩ; for example, 1 kiloohm can be written as 1 kΩ.
