## How to convert

1 gram (g) = 0.01 hectogram (hg). Gram (g) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system. Hectogram (hg) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system.

## 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).

## An Introduction to Hectograms

Hectograms are a unit of mass in the metric system that are equal to one hundred grams. They are rarely used in everyday life, but they have some specific applications in agriculture, retail and radio astronomy. In this article, we will explore the definition, history, conversion and usage of hectograms.

## Definition of Hectograms

A hectogram is “a metric unit of mass equal to one hundred grams”, according to the Oxford Dictionaries. The symbol for hectogram is hg, and it is derived from the Greek word “hekatón”, meaning “hundred”. A hectogram is also equivalent to 0.1 kilogram, 3.527 ounces or 487.76 carats.

## History of Hectograms

Hectograms were introduced as a multiplier in the metric system in 1795, along with other prefixes such as kilo, deca, deci and centi. The metric system was developed in France during the French Revolution, as a way to standardize and simplify measurements. The metric system was based on decimal fractions and powers of ten, unlike the previous systems that used arbitrary units and fractions.

The metric system was adopted by many countries in the 19th and 20th centuries, and became the official system of measurement for science and international trade. However, some countries such as the United States still use other systems such as the imperial or customary units.

## How to Convert Hectograms

Hectograms can be easily converted to other units of mass by multiplying or dividing by powers of ten. For example, to convert hectograms to grams, we multiply by 100; to convert hectograms to kilograms, we divide by 10; to convert hectograms to milligrams, we multiply by 100000.

## Where Hectograms are Used

Hectograms are not very common in everyday life, but they have some specific applications in different fields and countries. Here are some examples:

• In agronomy, hectograms are used for measuring quantities of animal feed (hectogram/animal) and for measuring agricultural productivity (hectogram/hectare).
• In Italy, hectograms are used for retail sale of cold cuts and meat, and are abbreviated as etto.
• In Canada, New Zealand and Sweden, hectograms are sometimes used for labeling packages of cheese and meat.
• In radio astronomy, hectograms are occasionally used to indicate a radio band by wavelength (hectometre).

## Example Conversions of Hectograms to Other Units

Here are some example conversions of hectograms to other units:

• To convert 2 hg to g, we multiply by 100: 2 hg x 100 = 200 g
• To convert 5 hg to kg, we divide by 10: 5 hg / 10 = 0.5 kg
• To convert 3 hg to mg, we multiply by 100000: 3 hg x 100000 = 300000 mg
• To convert 4 hg to oz, we multiply by 3.527: 4 hg x 3.527 = 14.108 oz
• To convert 6 hg to lb, we multiply by 0.22: 6 hg x 0.22 = 1.32 lb
• To convert 7 hg to ct, we multiply by 487.76: 7 hg x 487.76 = 3414.32 ct
Hectograms also can be marked as Hectogrammes (alternative British English spelling in UK).
