Actually that question, exactly as stated in unanswerable. Assuming you mean "1 k ohm", then the answer is 1000 ohms. Uppercase K refers to the Kelvin temperature scale.

For the sake of clarity in electronics, the value indicator also substitutes for the decimal point. In the absence of "omega" in standard typesetting, 1.2 ohms is represented as 1R2 and 1200 ohms as 1k2. Therefore 1M2 would be 1,200,000 ohms and 1m2 would be 0R0012 ohms or 1.2 milli-ohms.
