How to convert

1 milligram (mg) = 0.1 centigram (cg). Milligram (mg) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system. Centigram (cg) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system.

Milligrams: A Unit of Weight

Milligrams are a unit of weight that are used in the International System of Units (SI), also known as the metric system. Milligrams are derived from the Latin word mille, which means thousand, and the French word gramme, which means weight. The symbol for milligram is mg.

Definition of the Milligram

The milligram is defined as one one-thousandth of a gram, which is one one-millionth 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 milligram is a very small unit of weight, equivalent to about 0.000035 ounces or 0.000002 pounds. It is commonly used for measuring small masses, such as medicines, chemicals, vitamins, minerals and microorganisms.

How to Convert Milligrams

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

• To convert milligrams to ounces, divide by 28349.523125. For example, 1000 mg = 1000 / 28349.523125 = 0.035 oz.
• To convert milligrams to pounds, divide by 453592.37. For example, 5000 mg = 5000 / 453592.37 = 0.011 lb.
• To convert milligrams to tons (short), divide by 907184740. For example, 10000 mg = 10000 / 907184740 = 0.000011 ton.
• To convert milligrams to grams, divide by 1000. For example, 2000 mg = 2000 / 1000 = 2 g.
• To convert milligrams to kilograms, divide by 1000000. For example, 3000 mg = 3000 / 1000000 = 0.003 kg.
• To convert milligrams to micrograms, multiply by 1000. For example, 50 mg = 50 x 1000 = 50000 µg.

Where Milligrams are Used

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

• In most countries that use the SI system, milligrams are used for measuring small masses, such as medicines, chemicals, vitamins, minerals and microorganisms.
• In the United States, milligrams are sometimes used for measuring small masses, such as medicines, chemicals, vitamins, minerals and microorganisms.
• In Canada, milligrams are used for measuring small masses, such as medicines, chemicals, vitamins, minerals and microorganisms.
• In Australia and New Zealand, milligrams are used for measuring small masses, such as medicines, chemicals, vitamins, minerals and microorganisms.
• In China, milligrams are used for measuring small masses, such as medicines, chemicals, vitamins, minerals and microorganisms.

History of Milligrams

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

• The milligram was originally based on the weight of a grain of wheat or barley, which was used as a unit of mass in ancient civilizations such as Egypt, Mesopotamia and Greece.
• The milligram was part of the gram-centimeter-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 milligram 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 milligram 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 Milligrams to Other Units

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

• 1 mg = 0.000035 oz
• 1 mg = 0.000002 lb
• 1 mg = 0.0000000011 ton
• 1 mg = 0.001 g
• 1 mg = 0.000001 kg
• 1 mg = 1000 µg
• 1 mg = 0.000032 troy oz
• 1 mg = 0.000032 apothecaries’ oz
• 1 mg = 0.000035 Spanish oz
• 1 mg = 0.000034 French oz
Milligrams also can be marked as Milligrammes (alternative British English spelling in UK).

Centigrams: A Unit of Weight

Centigrams are a unit of weight that are used for measuring small masses, such as coins, jewels, and medicines. Centigrams are also known as hundredths of a gram. The symbol for centigram is cg.

Definition of the Centigram

The centigram is defined as one hundredth of a gram, which is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI). The centigram is also equal to 10 milligrams or 0.01 grams.

The centigram is equal to about 0.000353 ounces or 0.154 grains. The centigram is also equal to about 6.02×10-20 atomic mass units or 1.66×10-23 kilograms.

How to Convert Centigrams

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

• To convert centigrams to ounces, multiply by 0.000353. For example, 10 cg = 10 x 0.000353 = 0.00353 oz.
• To convert centigrams to grains, multiply by 0.154. For example, 5 cg = 5 x 0.154 = 0.77 gr.
• To convert centigrams to tonnes, multiply by 1×10-8. For example, 20 cg = 20 x 1×10-8 = 2×10-7 t.
• To convert centigrams to kilograms, multiply by 1×10-5. For example, 15 cg = 15 x 1×10-5 = 0.00015 kg.
• To convert centigrams to grams, multiply by 0.01. For example, 25 cg = 25 x 0.01 = 0.25 g.
• To convert centigrams to milligrams, multiply by 10. For example, 30 cg = 30 x 10 = 300 mg.

Where Centigrams are Used

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

• In the fields of jewelry and gemology, centigrams are used for measuring weight, especially for diamonds, pearls, and gold.
• In the fields of medicine and pharmacology, centigrams are used for measuring weight, especially for drugs, vitamins, and supplements.
• In the fields of chemistry and biology, centigrams are used for measuring weight, especially for reagents, samples, and enzymes.
• In the fields of nutrition and dietetics, centigrams are used for measuring weight, especially for calories, carbohydrates, and proteins.

History of Centigrams

Centigrams have a long history that dates back to the late 18th century. Here are some highlights of the history of centigrams:

• The centigram 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 centigram 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 centigram 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 centigram was also referred to as the hundredth of a gram or the decimilligram in some countries and contexts to emphasize its small size.
