This tool calculates the karat value of your gold based on its weight and purity.

## How to Use the Karat Calculator

This calculator helps to determine the value of a gold item based on its weight and purity in karats. To use this calculator:

- Enter the weight of the gold item in grams in the “Gold Weight” input box.
- Enter the purity of the gold item in karats in the “Gold Purity” input box. Note that pure gold is 24 karats.

`Value = Gold Weight (grams) * (Gold Purity / 24) * Pure Gold Price per Gram`

Where:

**Gold Weight**is the weight of the gold in grams entered by the user.**Gold Purity**is the karat value of the gold entered by the user, which can vary from 0 to 24.**Pure Gold Price per Gram**is set to a constant value (e.g., $50 per gram) and represents the market price for pure 24-karat gold.

## Limitations
