## How to convert

1 kilogram (kg) = 1E+18 femtogram (fg). Kilogram (kg) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system. Femtogram (fg) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system.

## Definition of the Kilogram

A 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 platinum-iridium 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 Kilograms

To 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:

• 1 kg = 1000 g
• 1 kg = 2.2046226218 lb
• 1 kg = 35.27396195 oz
• 1 kg = 0.001 t
• 1 kg = 0.1574730444 st

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.

## Where Kilograms are Used

The kilogram is a unit of weight that is widely used to measure the weight of objects and substances such as food, clothes, animals, metals and chemicals. For example, an adult human body has an average weight of about 62 kg.

The kilogram is also used to measure the weight of some physical quantities such as force, pressure and torque. For example, one newton (N) is equal to one kilogram times one meter per second squared (kg x m/s2).

## Example Conversions of Kilograms to Other Units

Here are some examples of how to convert kilograms to other units of weight using the conversion factors given above:

• 2 kg = 2 x 1000 g = 2000 g
• 3 kg = 3 x 2.2046226218 lb = 6.6138678654 lb
• 4 kg = 4 x 35.27396195 oz = 141.0958478 oz
• 5 kg = 5 x 0.001 t = 0.005 t
• 6 kg = 6 x 0.1574730444 st = 0.9448382664 st

## Conclusion

The 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 IPK, a cylinder of platinum-iridium alloy stored in France. The kilogram is widely used to measure the weight of objects and substances such as food, clothes, animals, metals and chemicals, as well as some physical quantities such as force, pressure and torque. To convert kilograms to other units of weight, we need to use conversion factors that relate the kilogram to the desired unit.

Kilograms also can be marked as kilogrammes in UK.

## Femtograms: A Unit of Weight

Femtograms are a unit of weight that are used for measuring extremely small masses, such as atoms, molecules, and particles. Femtograms are also known as trillionths of a gram. The symbol for femtogram is fg.

## Definition of the Femtogram

The femtogram is defined as one trillionth of a gram, which is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI). The femtogram is also equal to one thousandth of a picogram or one millionth of a nanogram.

The femtogram is equal to about 2.2×10-18 pounds or 1.54×10-14 grains. The femtogram is also equal to about 6.02×10-20 atomic mass units or 1.66×10-30 kilograms.

## How to Convert Femtograms

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

• To convert femtograms to pounds, multiply by 2.2×10-18. For example, 10 fg = 10 x 2.2×10-18 = 2.2×10-17 lb.
• To convert femtograms to grains, multiply by 1.54×10-14. For example, 5 fg = 5 x 1.54×10-14 = 7.7×10-14 gr.
• To convert femtograms to tonnes, multiply by 1×10-18. For example, 20 fg = 20 x 1×10-18 = 2×10-17 t.
• To convert femtograms to kilograms, multiply by 1×10-15. For example, 15 fg = 15 x 1×10-15 = 1.5×10-14 kg.
• To convert femtograms to grams, multiply by 1×10-12. For example, 25 fg = 25 x 1×10-12 = 2.5×10-11 g.
• To convert femtograms to milligrams, multiply by 0.000000001. For example, 30 fg = 30 x 0.000000001 = 0.00000003 mg.

## Where Femtograms are Used

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

• In the fields of physics, chemistry, and microbiology, femtograms are used for measuring weight, especially for atoms, molecules, and particles.
• In the fields of medicine and pharmacology, femtograms are used for measuring weight, especially for drugs, hormones, and biomarkers.
• In the fields of biotechnology and nanotechnology, femtograms are used for measuring weight, especially for nanostructures, nanomaterials, and nanodevices.
• In the fields of environmental science and toxicology, femtograms are used for measuring weight, especially for pollutants, contaminants, and toxins.

## History of Femtograms

Femtograms have a relatively recent history that dates back to the late 20th century. Here are some highlights of the history of femtograms:

• The femtogram 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 femtogram was part of the metric system that was introduced in France in the late 18th century as a decimal-based system of measurement that was designed to replace the traditional units that varied from region to region.
• The femtogram 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 femtogram was also referred to as the trillionth of a gram or the millinano gram in some countries and contexts to emphasize its extremely small size.

## Example Conversions of Femtograms to Other Units

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

• 1 fg = 2.2×10-18 lb
• 1 fg = 1.54×10-14 gr
• 1 fg = 1×10-18 t
• 1 fg = 1×10-15 kg
• 1 fg = 1×10-12 g
• 1 fg = 0.000000001 mg
• 1 fg = 6.02×10-20 u
• 1 fg = 1.66×10-30 kN
• 1 fg = 3.53×10-20 oz
Femtograms also can be marked as Femtogrammes (alternative British English spelling in UK).
