The history of the kilogram dates back to the late 18th century during the French Revolution when the metric system was established. Initially, a kilogram was defined as the mass of one liter of water.

Later, it was refined into a physical object known as IPK (International Prototype of the Kilogram), a platinum-iridium alloy cylinder kept at the BIPM in France.

However, relying on a physical prototype posed challenges due to its susceptibility to change over time. To address this, in 2019, the kilogram underwent a significant redefinition based on a fundamental constant of nature known as the Planck constant.

### How to convert kilogram into gram?

How many kilograms are in one gram? 0.001 kg. So if you convert 1 kg to gram, you get 1000g. To convert kilograms to grams, you have to divide the kilogram value by 0.001 or multiply it by 1000.

1 kg = 1000 gram

0.001 kg = 1 gram
