The calculation of how many grams are in a kilogram is quite simple. It is important to know one thousand grams are in every kilogram.
To know how many grams are in a specific number of kilograms, multiply that by 1000.
To figure out how many grams are in 5 kilograms, multiply the input by 1000. With 5000 being the answer, this means that there are 5000 grams in 5 kilograms.
To convert a number from grams to kilograms, divide that many by 1000.
To find out how many kilograms you can make from 6000 grams, divide it by 1000. 6, our answer, means that there are 6 kilograms in 6000 grams.
Another way to convert grams into kilograms, or the other way around, is by moving the decimal point.
For instance, 6.2 kilograms will give you 6200 if you can move the decimal point three times to the right.
If given 5100 grams, moving the decimal point three times to the left, it becomes 5.1 kilograms.
However, conversion charts are a handy way to figure out how many grams are in certain numbers of kilograms or vice versa.
