How to Convert Ohms to Kiloohms

conversion scale showing ohms and equivalent kiloohms electrical resistance values

To convert a ohm measurement to a kiloohm measurement, multiply the electrical resistance by the conversion ratio. One ohm is equal to 0.001 kiloohms, so use this simple formula to convert:

kiloohms = ohms × 0.001

The electrical resistance in kiloohms is equal to the ohms multiplied by 0.001.

For example, here's how to convert 5 ohms to kiloohms using the formula above.
5 Ω = (5 × 0.001) = 0.005 kΩ

Ohms and kiloohms are both units used to measure electrical resistance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


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.


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


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.
