How to Convert Siemens to Kilosiemens

To convert a siemens measurement to a kilosiemens measurement, multiply the electrical conductance by the conversion ratio. One siemens is equal to 0.001 kilosiemens, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilosiemens = siemens × 0.001

The electrical conductance in kilosiemens is equal to the siemens multiplied by 0.001.

For example, here's how to convert 5 siemens to kilosiemens using the formula above.
5 S = (5 × 0.001) = 0.005 kS

Siemens and kilosiemens are both units used to measure electrical conductance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Siemens

One siemens is the electrical conductance equal to an increase in current of one ampere for every increase in electrical potential difference of one volt. The siemens is the SI defined unit equal to the mho, and is the reciprocal of the resistance in ohms.

The siemens is the SI derived unit for electrical conductance in the metric system. Siemens can be abbreviated as S, for example 1 siemens can be written as 1 S.

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 103. Kilosiemens can be abbreviated as kS, for example 1 kilosiemens can be written as 1 kS.
