Since kilo means  "thousand" then there would be 1/1000th of a kiloliter in one liter or 0.001 kiloliters = 1.0 liters

How many kiloliters are in 473 liters?

Well, first lets go over the metric system prefixes. K ilo, H ecto, D eca, BASE U NIT, D eci, C enti, M illi. Here's an acronym to remember, K ing H enry D ied U nexpectedly D rinking C ement M ix (or C hocolate M ilk). So if you want to convert 473 liters to kiloliters, move the decimal over however many times to the left as it does to get from Base Unit (liter) to Kilo (kiloliter). 1000 liters are in a kiloliter, so it is .473 kiloliters . Just for future advice, with the metric system it is as simple as moving a decimal. 10 cm=1 decimeter. 100 cm= 1 meter. 1000 ml= 1 liter. To convert a smaller unit (milli, for example) to a larger unit (base unit for example), you move the decimal times however times to the left (milli, centi, deci, base unit). 3 spaces, so 1000 milliliters are in a liter. I hope that makes sense!
