## 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.

## Definition of the Gram

The gram is defined as one one-thousandth of a kilogram, which is the base unit of mass in the SI. The kilogram is defined by taking the fixed numerical value of the Planck constant h to be 6.62607015 ×10 −34 when expressed in the unit J s, which is equal to kg m 2 s −1, where the meter and the second are defined in terms of c and ∆ν Cs. The Planck constant is a fundamental physical constant that relates the energy of a photon to its frequency.

The gram is a very small unit of weight, equivalent to about 0.035 ounces or 0.002 pounds. It is commonly used for measuring non-liquid ingredients in cooking, such as flour, sugar, salt and spices. It is also used for measuring small masses, such as jewelry, coins, medicines and chemicals.

## 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.

## Where Grams are Used

Grams are used in different countries and regions for different applications and purposes. Here are some examples of where grams are used:

• In most countries that use the SI system, grams are used for measuring food portions and ingredients, postal items, drugs and medicines, precious metals and gems and scientific experiments.
• In the United States, grams are sometimes used for measuring food portions and ingredients, especially for nutritional information labels, drugs and medicines, precious metals and gems and scientific experiments.
• In Canada, grams are used for measuring food portions and ingredients, postal items, drugs and medicines, precious metals and gems and scientific experiments.
• In Australia and New Zealand, grams are used for measuring food portions and ingredients, postal items, drugs and medicines, precious metals and gems and scientific experiments.
• In China, grams are used for measuring food portions and ingredients, postal items, drugs and medicines, precious metals and gems and scientific experiments.

## History of Grams

Grams have a long history that dates back to ancient times. Here are some highlights of the history of grams:

• The gram was originally defined in 1795 as the absolute weight of a volume of pure water equal to the cube of the hundredth part of a meter at the temperature of melting ice.
• The gram was later changed to be the weight of a volume of pure water equal to the cube of the hundredth part of a meter at the temperature of maximum density of water (4 °C).
• The gram was part of the centimeter–gram–second system of units (CGS) that was developed in the 19th century as an alternative to the meter–kilogram–second system of units (MKS).
• The gram was replaced by the kilogram as the base unit of mass in the SI system that was adopted in 1960 as an international standard for measurements.
• The gram was redefined in terms of the kilogram and the Planck constant in 2019 as part of a major revision of the SI system.

## Example Conversions of Grams to Other Units

Here are some examples of conversions of grams to other units of weight:

• 1 g = 0.035274 oz
• 1 g = 0.002205 lb
• 1 g = 0.0000011 ton
• 1 g = 0.001 kg
• 1 g = 1000 mg
• 1 g = 1000000 µg
• 1 g = 0.032151 troy oz
• 1 g = 0.032151 apothecaries’ oz
• 1 g = 0.035274 Spanish oz
• 1 g = 0.033814 French oz
Grams also can be marked as grammes (alternative British English spelling in UK).

## Stones: A Unit of Weight

Stones are a unit of weight that are used in the British imperial system and the US customary system. Stones are derived from the use of stones for weights, a practice that dates back to ancient times. The word stone comes from the Old English stan, meaning stone, and the abbreviation st comes from the Latin word statera, meaning balance.

## Definition of the Stone

The stone is defined as 14 pounds avoirdupois, which is equal to 6.35 kilograms or 224 ounces. The avoirdupois pound is defined as 7000 grains, which is a unit of mass based on the weight of a grain of wheat. The stone is one-eighth of a hundredweight, which is 112 pounds, and one-quarter of a quarter, which is 28 pounds.

The stone is not a legal unit of measurement in most countries, except for the United Kingdom and Ireland, where it is still used for measuring body weight. In other countries, such as the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, the stone is sometimes used informally for expressing human weight.

## How to Convert Stones

Stones can be converted to other units of weight by using conversion factors or formulas. Here are some examples of how to convert stones to other units of weight in the US customary system and the SI system:

• To convert stones to pounds, multiply by 14. For example, 10 st = 10 x 14 = 140 lb.
• To convert stones to ounces, multiply by 224. For example, 5 st = 5 x 224 = 1120 oz.
• To convert stones to tons (short), divide by 142.857. For example, 20 st = 20 / 142.857 = 0.14 ton.
• To convert stones to kilograms, multiply by 6.35. For example, 8 st = 8 x 6.35 = 50.8 kg.
• To convert stones to grams, multiply by 6350. For example, 3 st = 3 x 6350 = 19050 g.
• To convert stones to milligrams, multiply by 6350000. For example, 2 st = 2 x 6350000 = 12700000 mg.

## Where Stones are Used

Stones are used in different countries and regions for different applications and purposes. Here are some examples of where stones are used:

• In the United Kingdom and Ireland, stones are used for measuring body weight and livestock weight. For example, a person may weigh 11 st or a cow may weigh 40 st.
• In the United States, stones are sometimes used for measuring body weight and sports equipment. For example, a boxer may weigh 12 st or a bowling ball may weigh 1 st.
• In Canada, Australia and New Zealand, stones are sometimes used for measuring body weight and agricultural products. For example, a person may weigh 9 st or a bag of potatoes may weigh 2 st.
• In some African countries, such as Kenya and Uganda, stones are sometimes used for measuring crops and commodities. For example, a sack of maize may weigh 4 st or a bunch of bananas may weigh 1 st.

## History of Stones

Stones have a long history that dates back to ancient times. Here are some highlights of the history of stones:

• The stone was an ancient unit of measurement that was based on the weight of a natural stone or rock. It varied from place to place and from time to time depending on the type and size of the stone used.
• The stone was used in different systems of measurement, such as the Roman system, the Anglo-Saxon system, the English system and the Scottish system. It ranged from about 5 pounds to about 40 pounds depending on the region and the object weighed.
• The stone was standardized by royal statutes and international agreements in different periods of history. For example, in 1389 a royal statute fixed the stone of wool at 14 pounds in England; in 1824 an international agreement defined the avoirdupois pound as exactly 453.59237 grams; in 1835 an act permitted using a stone of 14 pounds for trade in Britain; in 1959 an international agreement defined the international avoirdupois ounce as exactly 28.349523125 grams.
