    You use kilograms when your dealing with mass and grams is larger

    Kilogram = 1000 grams. A Kilo is 1000 times larger than a gram. ANd think about this... it might help. When you buy fruits in vegitables in the USA, they sell by the pound. What is closer to a pound? A kilo or a gram?

    Yah. So since the kilo is roughly 2.2 pounds, you use it for thing that would use that sort of measure.

    =) A lot of conversions is knowing how to set it up. Personally, I find it easier to set up if I can find a similar thing that I relate to. So say centimeters vs inches. They are both for measuring small objects, vs. kilometers and miles which are for things more like distance traveled. When you equate it to being similar in purpose then it is, for me, easier to translate from one to the other because I know which to translate to.
