Likewise, one kiloliter is 1,000 liters, and one kilogram is 1,000 grams. Reversing the operation shows that one meter is one thousandth of a kilometer, one liter is one thousandth of a kiloliter, and one gram is one thousandth of a kilogram. To convert meters to kilometers, divide by 1,000, and to convert kilometers to meters, multiply by 1,000. The same method may be used to convert liters and grams.
