# Convert kip to dram

Learn how to convert 1 kip to dram step by step.

## Calculation Breakdown

Set up the equation
$$1.0\left(kip\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(dram\right)$$
Define the base values of the selected units in relation to the SI unit $$\left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} kilo}gram\right)$$
$$\text{Left side: 1.0 } \left(kip\right) = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 453.59237\left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} kilo}gram\right)} = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 453.59237\left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} k}g\right)}$$
$$\text{Right side: 1.0 } \left(dram\right) = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 4.37 \times 10^{-3}\left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} kilo}gram\right)} = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 4.37 \times 10^{-3}\left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} k}g\right)}$$
Insert known values into the conversion equation to determine $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$$1.0\left(kip\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(dram\right)$$
$$\text{Insert known values } =>$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 453.59237} \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} kilo}gram\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 4.37 \times 10^{-3}}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} kilo}gram\right)}$$
$$\text{Or}$$
$$1.0 \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 453.59237} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} k}g\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 4.37 \times 10^{-3}} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} k}g\right)}$$
$$\text{Cancel SI units}$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 453.59237} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \cancel{\left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} k}g\right)}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 4.37 \times 10^{-3}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \cancel{\left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} k}g\right)}}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$453.59237 = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times 4.37 \times 10^{-3}$$
Switch sides
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times 4.37 \times 10^{-3} = 453.59237$$
Isolate $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
Multiply both sides by $$\left(\dfrac{1.0}{4.37 \times 10^{-3}}\right)$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times 4.37 \times 10^{-3} \times \dfrac{1.0}{4.37 \times 10^{-3}} = 453.59237 \times \dfrac{1.0}{4.37 \times 10^{-3}}$$
$$\text{Cancel}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{4.37}} \times {\color{rgb(99,194,222)} \cancel{10^{-3}}} \times \dfrac{1.0}{{\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{4.37}} \times {\color{rgb(99,194,222)} \cancel{10^{-3}}}} = 453.59237 \times \dfrac{1.0}{4.37 \times 10^{-3}}$$
$$\text{Simplify}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = \dfrac{453.59237}{4.37 \times 10^{-3}}$$
Rewrite equation
$$\dfrac{1.0}{10^{-3}}\text{ can be rewritten to }10^{3}$$
$$\text{Rewrite}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = \dfrac{10^{3} \times 453.59237}{4.37}$$
Solve $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\approx103796.88101\approx1.038 \times 10^{5}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$1.0\left(kip\right)\approx{\color{rgb(20,165,174)} 1.038 \times 10^{5}}\left(dram\right)$$
