## How to convert

1 microgram (mcg) = 1E-12 tonne (tonne). Microgram (mcg) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system. Tonne (tonne) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system.

## Definition of Micrograms

A microgram is a unit of mass or weight equal to one-millionth of a gram. It is part of the metric system, which is based on powers of ten. The symbol for microgram is μg according to the International System of Units (SI); the recommended symbol in the United States and United Kingdom when communicating medical information is mcg. One microgram is equivalent to 0.001 milligrams or 0.000000001 kilograms. It is also equal to 0.000015 grains, which is a unit of weight in the imperial system.

## How to Convert Micrograms

To convert micrograms to other units of weight, we need to multiply or divide by the appropriate conversion factor. For example, to convert micrograms to milligrams, we divide by 1000; to convert micrograms to grams, we divide by 1,000,000; and to convert micrograms to kilograms, we divide by 1,000,000,000. Here are some examples of conversion factors for different units of weight:

• 1 microgram = 0.001 milligram
• 1 microgram = 0.000001 gram
• 1 microgram = 0.000000001 kilogram
• 1 microgram = 0.000000035 ounce
• 1 microgram = 0.000000002 pound
• 1 microgram = 0.000015 grain

## Where Micrograms are Used

Micrograms are very commonly used in scientific and medical fields where precision and accuracy are essential. For example, micrograms may be used to measure:

• The mass of tiny objects or substances, such as bacteria, viruses, DNA, hormones or pollutants.
• The dosage of some medications, such as steroids, anticoagulants or chemotherapy drugs.
• The concentration of some nutrients or toxins in food, water or air.

Micrograms may also be used in different countries for different applications. For example, in China, micrograms are used to measure the weight of silk; in India, micrograms are used to measure the weight of spices; and in Switzerland, micrograms are used to measure the weight of gold.

## History of Micrograms

The origin of micrograms can be traced back to the development 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 one-thousandth of a kilogram, and the microgram was defined as one-millionth 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 Germany, the metric system was officially adopted in 1872, but some old units such as pfund (pound) and zentner (hundredweight) are still 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 Micrograms to Other Units

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

• 2 micrograms = 0.002 milligrams
• 5 micrograms = 0.000005 grams
• 10 micrograms = 0.00000001 kilograms
• 15 micrograms = 0.00000053 ounces
• 20 micrograms = 0.00000004 pounds
• 25 micrograms = 0.00039 grains
Micrograms also can be marked as Microgrammes or µg (alternative British English spelling in UK).

## Tonnes: A Unit of Weight

Tonnes are a unit of weight that are used for measuring large masses, such as vehicles, ships, and buildings. Tonnes are also known as metric tons or megagrams. The symbol for tonne is t.

## Definition of the Tonne

The tonne is defined as 1000 kilograms, which is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI). The tonne is also equal to one million grams or one billion milligrams.

The tonne is equal to about 2204.6 avoirdupois pounds or 1.1023 short tons. The tonne is also equal to about 0.9842 long tons or 0.9072 tonnes-force.

## How to Convert Tonnes

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

• To convert tonnes to avoirdupois pounds, multiply by 2204.6226. For example, 10 t = 10 x 2204.6226 = 22046.226 lb.
• To convert tonnes to short tons, multiply by 1.1023. For example, 5 t = 5 x 1.1023 = 5.5115 st.
• To convert tonnes to long tons, multiply by 0.9842. For example, 20 t = 20 x 0.9842 = 19.684 lt.
• To convert tonnes to kilograms, multiply by 1000. For example, 15 t = 15 x 1000 = 15000 kg.
• To convert tonnes to grams, multiply by 1000000. For example, 25 t = 25 x 1000000 = 25000000 g.
• To convert tonnes to milligrams, multiply by 1000000000. For example, 30 t = 30 x 1000000000 = 30000000000 mg.

## Where Tonnes are Used

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

• In most countries that use the SI system, tonnes are used for measuring weight, especially for large masses, such as vehicles, ships, and buildings.
• In the United States, tonnes are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for international trade and commerce.
• In Canada, Australia and New Zealand, tonnes are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for international trade and commerce.
• In the United Kingdom, tonnes are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for international trade and commerce.
• In India, tonnes are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for international trade and commerce.

## History of Tonnes

Tonnes have a relatively short history that dates back to the late 18th century. Here are some highlights of the history of tonnes:

• The tonne was originally based on the weight of a cubic meter of water at its maximum density of four degrees Celsius, which was approximately equal to 1000 kilograms.
• The tonne was part of the original metric system that was introduced in France in 1795 as a decimal-based system of measurement that was designed to replace the traditional units that varied from region to region.
• The tonne was adopted by many countries around the world as part of the International System of Units (SI) that was established in 1960 as a universal system of measurement that was based on seven base units and several derived units.
• The tonne was also referred to as the metric ton or the megagram in some countries and contexts to distinguish it from the non-metric units of the short ton and the long ton.

## Example Conversions of Tonnes to Other Units

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

• 1 t = 2204.6226 lb
• 1 t = 1.1023 st
• 1 t = 0.9842 lt
• 1 t = 1000 kg
• 1 t = 1000000 g
