##### How to Convert Units of Acceleration

Conversions are performed by using a conversion factor. By knowing the conversion factor, converting between
units can become a simple multiplication problem:

**S * C = E**

Where **S** is our starting value, **C** is our conversion factor, and **E**
is our end converted result.

To simply convert from any unit into grams^{}, for example, from 5 kilograms, just *
***multiply by** the conversion value in the right column in the table below.

5 kg * 1000 [ (g^{}) / (kg) ] = 5000 g^{}

To convert from g^{} into units in the left column **divide by**
the value in the right column or, multiply by the reciprocal, 1/x.

5000 g^{} / 1000 [ (g^{}) / (kg) ] = 5 kg

To convert among any units in the left column, say from A to B, you can multiply by the factor for A to
convert A into grams then divide by the factor for B to convert out of g^{}. Or, you can find the single factor
you need by dividing the A factor by the B factor.

For example, to convert from kilograms to pounds you would multiply by 1000 then divide by 453.59237.
Or, multiply by 1000/453.59237 = 2.204622. So, to convert directly from kg to lb, you multiply by 2.204622.
