Each kilogram is equal to 1,000 grams. Both the kilogram and gram are metric measurements, with the former being roughly equivalent to 2.2 pounds and the latter 0.0353 of an ounce.
A gram is comparable in weight to a small paperclip, and a kilogram weighs about the same as a small laptop. A gram is also equal to 1 milliliter of water, making 1,000 grams of water the same weight as a liter. The kilogram is the base measurement of weight in the International System of Units measurement system. This system was previously known as the metric system and is used in most of the countries of the world.
