## What is a GSM to KG Calculator?

As the name implies, GSM to KG Calculator is an online paper/fabric tool which helps the user to calculate the weight of the paper, fabric or any other material bases on their GSM values and their dimensions.

GSM or Grams per Square Meter is a measurement unit used to define the weight or thickness of a paper. fabric, or any other sheet like materials. It represents the mass of the material over a square meter area.

Higher GSM paper is thicker and more durable than low GSM papers. Therefore, artists use higher GSM values papers for their artwork. On the other hand, lower GSM value papers are used in day to day life for printing newspapers, and office receipts. This unit is also called ‘Grammage’ in English and French.

## How to Use the GSM to KG Calculator?

- Visit the GSM to KG Calculator page
- Enter the GSM value in the first input field
- Similarly, enter the length and breadth of the paper in their respective fields
- After that, click on the calculate button to calculate the weight of the paper

## How to Convert GSM to KG?

To find the weight of the paper or the fabric, you should have the idea about the GSM of the material and the dimensiosn of the material. Once you have the GSM value, and the dimensions value, then you can easily calculate the weight of the material using the following formula:

**Weight (KG) = [GSM (g/m ^{2}) x Length (m) x Breadth (m)]/1000**

where:

- GSM is the grams per square meter of the material
- Length is the length of the material (in meters)
- Breadth is the breadth of the material (in meters)
- Weight is the weight of the material (in kilograms)

**Note:** Here, we are dividing by 1000 to convert the grams into kilograms.

**Example**

**Example:** Calculate the weight of an A4 paper of 90 GSM.

GSM of the Paper = 90g/m^{2}

Length of the A4 paper = 0.29m

Width of the A4 paper = 0.21m

Now, we have the GSM value of the paper and dimensions of the paper. So, we’ll use the grammage formula to calculate the weight of the paper.

Weight (Kg) = (90 x 0.29 x 0.21)/1000 = 0.005481 Kg

Thus, the weight of the A4 paper of 90 GSM is 0.005481 kg or 5.48 g.
