Gram (g) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system. Centigrams: A Unit of Weight
Centigrams are a unit of weight that are used for measuring small masses, such as coins, jewels, and medicines. Centigrams are also known as hundredths of a gram. The symbol for centigram is cg.
Definition of the Centigram
The centigram is defined as one hundredth of a gram, which is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI). The centigram is also equal to 10 milligrams or 0.01 grams.
The centigram is equal to about 0.000353 ounces or 0.154 grains. The centigram is also equal to about 6.02×1020 atomic mass units or 1.66×1023 kilograms.
How to Convert Centigrams
Centigrams can be converted to other units of weight by using conversion factors or formulas. Here are some examples of how to convert centigrams to other units of weight in the US customary system and the SI system:
 To convert centigrams to ounces, multiply by 0.000353. For example, 10 cg = 10 x 0.000353 = 0.00353 oz.
 To convert centigrams to grains, multiply by 0.154. For example, 5 cg = 5 x 0.154 = 0.77 gr.
 To convert centigrams to tonnes, multiply by 1×108. For example, 20 cg = 20 x 1×108 = 2×107 t.
 To convert centigrams to kilograms, multiply by 1×105. For example, 15 cg = 15 x 1×105 = 0.00015 kg.
 To convert centigrams to grams, multiply by 0.01. For example, 25 cg = 25 x 0.01 = 0.25 g.
 To convert centigrams to milligrams, multiply by 10. For example, 30 cg = 30 x 10 = 300 mg.
Where Centigrams are Used
Centigrams are used in different countries and regions for different applications and purposes. Here are some examples of where centigrams are used:
 In the fields of jewelry and gemology, centigrams are used for measuring weight, especially for diamonds, pearls, and gold.
 In the fields of medicine and pharmacology, centigrams are used for measuring weight, especially for drugs, vitamins, and supplements.
 In the fields of chemistry and biology, centigrams are used for measuring weight, especially for reagents, samples, and enzymes.
 In the fields of nutrition and dietetics, centigrams are used for measuring weight, especially for calories, carbohydrates, and proteins.
History of Centigrams
Centigrams have a long history that dates back to the late 18th century. Here are some highlights of the history of centigrams:
 The centigram was derived from the gram, which was originally defined as the mass of one cubic centimeter of water at its maximum density of four degrees Celsius in the late 18th century.
 The centigram was part of the metric system that was introduced in France in the late 18th century as a decimalbased system of measurement that was designed to replace the traditional units that varied from region to region.
 The centigram was adopted by many countries around the world as part of the International System of Units (SI) that was established in the mid 20th century as a universal system of measurement that was based on seven base units and several derived units.
 The centigram was also referred to as the hundredth of a gram or the decimilligram in some countries and contexts to emphasize its small size.
Example Conversions of Centigrams to Other Units
Here are some examples of conversions of centigrams to other units of weight:
 1 cg = 0.000353 oz
 1 cg = 0.154 gr
 1 cg = 1×108 t
 1 cg = 1×105 kg
 1 cg = 0.01 g
 1 cg = 10 mg
Centigrams also can be marked as Centigrammes (alternative British English spelling in UK). Grams: A Unit of Weight
Grams are a unit of weight that are used in the International System of Units (SI), also known as the metric system. Grams are derived from the French word gramme, which was taken from the Late Latin term gramma, meaning a small weight. The symbol for gram is g.
How to Convert Grams
Grams can be converted to other units of weight by using conversion factors or formulas. Here are some examples of how to convert grams to other units of weight in the US customary system and the SI system:
 To convert grams to ounces, divide by 28.349523125. For example, 100 g = 100 / 28.349523125 = 3.527 oz.
 To convert grams to pounds, divide by 453.59237. For example, 500 g = 500 / 453.59237 = 1.102 lb.
 To convert grams to tons (short), divide by 907184.74. For example, 1000 g = 1000 / 907184.74 = 0.0011 ton.
 To convert grams to kilograms, divide by 1000. For example, 200 g = 200 / 1000 = 0.2 kg.
 To convert grams to milligrams, multiply by 1000. For example, 50 g = 50 x 1000 = 50000 mg.
 To convert grams to micrograms, multiply by 1000000. For example, 10 g = 10 x 1000000 = 10000000 µg.
Grams also can be marked as grammes (alternative British English spelling in UK).
