Convert Kilograms to Decigrams (kg to dg) ▶ Conversion Table
How to convert1 decigram (dg) = 0.0001 kilogram (kg). Decigram (dg) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system. Kilogram (kg) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system. Decigrams: A Unit of WeightDefinition of DecigramsA decigram is a unit of mass or weight equal to onetenth of a gram. It is part of the metric system, which is based on powers of ten. The symbol for decigram is dg. One decigram is equivalent to 100 milligrams or 0.0001 kilograms. It is also equal to 1.543 grains, which is a unit of weight in the imperial system. How to Convert DecigramsTo convert decigrams to other units of weight, we need to multiply or divide by the appropriate conversion factor. For example, to convert decigrams to grams, we multiply by 0.1; to convert decigrams to kilograms, we divide by 10,000; and to convert decigrams to milligrams, we multiply by 100. Here are some examples of conversion factors for different units of weight:
Where Decigrams are UsedDecigrams are not very commonly used in everyday life, as they are too small for most practical purposes. However, they may be used in some scientific or technical fields where precision and accuracy are important. For example, decigrams may be used to measure:
Decigrams may also be used in different countries for different applications. For example, in France, decigrams are used to measure the weight of cheese; in Italy, decigrams are used to measure the weight of gold; and in Japan, decigrams are used to measure the weight of pearls. History of DecigramsThe origin of decigrams can be traced back to the introduction of the metric system in France in the late 18th century. The metric system was designed to simplify and standardize the measurement of length, area, volume and mass by using decimal units based on the meter and the kilogram. The gram was defined as onethousandth of a kilogram, and the decigram was defined as onetenth of a gram. The metric system was adopted by many countries around the world over the next two centuries, but it also faced some resistance and opposition from those who preferred the traditional units of measurement. In some cases, the metric system was modified or adapted to suit local needs and preferences. For example, in Britain, the metric system was officially adopted in 1965, but some imperial units such as pounds and ounces are still widely used today. The International System of Units (SI) was established in 1960 as a modern version of the metric system that is based on seven base units: meter, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, mole and candela. The SI also defines several derived units that are combinations of the base units, such as newton, joule and watt. The SI is recognized as the global standard for measurement and is used by most countries and international organizations today. Example Conversions of Decigrams to Other UnitsHere are some examples of how to convert decigrams to other units of weight using the conversion factors mentioned above:
Kilograms: A Unit of WeightA kilogram is a unit of weight that measures how much force an object or substance exerts on a scale due to gravity. It is equal to the mass of the International Prototype of the Kilogram (IPK), a cylinder of platinumiridium alloy stored at the International Bureau of Weights and Measures in France. One kilogram can also be written as kg or 1000 g.History of the Kilogram.The kilogram was originally defined in 1795 during the French Revolution as the mass of one litre of water at 4 °C, which was determined to be 18841 grains. In 1799, the Kilogramme des Archives, a platinum artifact, replaced it as the standard of weight. In 1889, the IPK became the new standard of the unit of weight for the metric system and remained so for 130 years, until the current definition was adopted in 2019. The kilogram, as well as other metric units of weight, such as the gram and the tonne, were introduced in the 19th century as part of the decimal system of measurement that aimed to simplify and unify the units used in science and commerce. The kilogram was officially adopted by the International System of Units (SI) in 1960 as one of the seven base units. How to Convert KilogramsTo convert kilograms to other units of weight, we need to use conversion factors that relate the kilogram to the desired unit. For example, to convert kilograms to pounds, we need to know that one pound is equal to 0.45359237 kg. Therefore, one kilogram is equal to 2.2046226218 pounds. Here are some common conversion factors for kilograms:
To convert from other units of weight to kilograms, we need to use the inverse of these conversion factors. For example, to convert pounds to kilograms, we need to divide by 2.2046226218. Kilograms also can be marked as kilogrammes in UK.Español Russian Français
