How Do You Convert Ohms to Kilohms?

Ohms, which measure electrical resistance, can be converted to kiloohms by multiplying by 1,000. One ohms is equal to .001 kiloohm, while 1 kiloohm is equal to 1,000 ohms.

As a measurement unit, an ohm is represented in calculations by the Greek letter omega. To calculate how many ohms of resistance are present in a circuit, the number of volts are divided by the amount of amps present: R = V/I. In practical applications, ohms can be measured by commercially available voltmeters and multimeters.
