Convert Kilogram to Atomic Mass Unit (kg to amu)

In next fields, kindly type your value in the text box under title [ From: ] to convert from kilogram to atomic mass unit (kg to amu). As you type your value, the answer will be automatically calculated and displayed in the text box under title [ To: ].


Kilogram (abbreviations: kg, or kgm): is a SI (metric) system unit of mass (IPK, also known as "Le Grand K" or "Big K") and equivalent to 1/1000 of one gram. Where, at the temperature of melting ice, one gram is the absolute weight of a volume equal to the hundredth part of a metre cube of pure water.

Atomic Mass Unit (abbreviations: amu, or u): also known as dalton (symbol: Da), is a standard unit of mass that used on an atomic or molecular scale (atomic mass). One unified atomic mass unit is about the mass of one nucleon (either a single proton or neutron) and equivalent to 1 g/mol.

How to Convert Kilograms to Atomic Mass Units

Example: How many atomic mass units are equivalent to 0.06 kilograms?


1 kilograms = 6.024E+26 atomic mass units

0.06 kilograms = Y atomic mass units

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 0.06 times 6.024E+26 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 0.06 * 6.024E+26 / 1 = 3.6144E+25 atomic mass units

Answer is: 3.6144E+25 atomic mass units are equivalent to 0.06 kilograms.
