In scientific and technical writing, SI (International System of Units) use demands that both the number and the unit name be expressed in full (e.g., twelve kilograms) or that the numeral be followed by the symbol (e.g., 12 kg). When writing about weight alone, it is customary to use the word kilo (or kilo-) for clarity. One can write about 3.5 kilograms or 35 kilograms, but not 2+2 kilograms.

When writing about volume, SI use requires that the word milliliter (ml) be used with a number after it, even if the amount measured is very small (e.g., 1 ml). Although the term milligram (mg) is commonly used when referring to **a very small quantity** of metal, this term is not appropriate for **other units** of measurement. For example, one cannot say "a few mgs" because there is no such thing as **a few mills** or micograms. Instead, one says "a few hundredths of a gram" or "a few tens of micrograms."

When writing about people, SI use requires that the word kilo (or kilo-) be used with a number after it, even if the amount measured is very small (e.g., 1 kilo).

The right unit is kg, which is an abbreviation for kilograms. SI units are not pluralized by adding a s because they stand for seconds. "kgs" stands for **kilogram seconds**, which is not a common unit of measurement. A kilogram second is one thousandth of a kilogram, or 1/1000 kg.

The kilogram (also known as the kilogramme) is the basic unit of mass in **the International System** of Units (SI), the current metric system, and is represented by the unit sign kg. It is equal to 1/1000 of a tonne. A kilo is 1000 grams.

There are 10 tonnes in **a metric ton**; one ton is about 2.2046kg. There are 100 grams in a gram; one gram is 0.035951oz. One kilo equals **1000 grams** or 35.419451oz.

Thus 1KG = 0.354119 ozt.

You can convert **any amount** into kilograms by dividing it by 1000 and removing the decimal point. For example, if you have an ounce of marijuana then its weight in kilograms is 28.35. Or you could say that the marijuana weighs **350 grams** or 13.52 ounces.

Or in long form: 28.35 kg

You can convert any amount into ounces by multiplying it by 28.35 and adding the decimal point. For example, if you want to know how many pounds of marijuana there are you would say that there are about 700 pounds or 315 kg.

Or in long form: 703 lb.

In most English-speaking nations, the thousand units are separated by a comma: 1,000.. Notation

- The decimal representation for one thousand is.
- The SI prefix for a thousand units is “kilo-“, abbreviated to “k”—for instance, a kilometre or “km” is a thousand metres.

When referring to one kilogram, you use kg. Every other number you use is in kilograms. 1 kilo = 0.001 meter; 1 million grams is called a metric ton. 1 billion grams is called a metric ton.

In **general usage**, people will know what you mean if you say "we write in kilograms" or "they write in kilograms." However, scientists sometimes use **the abbreviations kGa** and kG for kilogauss and kilogamma, respectively. These are units of magnetic flux density. A kilogauss is 100 gauss, and a kilogamma is 10,000 gauss.

As you can see, there are many different ways to refer to **the same quantity** of gravity!

The kilogram is the SI base unit for mass. One kilogram equals one pound. It should be noted that rounding mistakes might occur, therefore always double-check the findings. Learn how to convert kilos to kilograms on this website. Fill out the form with **your own numbers** to convert the units!
