How to convert

1 milligram (mg) = 0.000001 kilogram (kg). Milligram (mg) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system. Kilogram (kg) 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).

Kilograms: A Unit of Weight

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.
