1 nanogram (ng) = 0.000000001 gram (g). Nanogram (ng) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system. Gram (g) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system.

## Nanograms: A Unit of Weight

Nanograms are a unit of weight that are used for measuring very small masses, such as molecules, atoms, and particles. Nanograms are also known as billionths of a gram. The symbol for nanogram is ng.

## Definition of the Nanogram

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

The nanogram is equal to about 2.2×10-12 pounds or 1.54×10-8 grains. The nanogram is also equal to about 6.02×10-14 atomic mass units or 1.66×10-24 kilograms.

## How to Convert Nanograms

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

• To convert nanograms to pounds, multiply by 2.2×10-12. For example, 10 ng = 10 x 2.2×10-12 = 2.2×10-11 lb.
• To convert nanograms to grains, multiply by 1.54×10-8. For example, 5 ng = 5 x 1.54×10-8 = 7.7×10-8 gr.
• To convert nanograms to tonnes, multiply by 1×10-12. For example, 20 ng = 20 x 1×10-12 = 2×10-11 t.
• To convert nanograms to kilograms, multiply by 1×10-9. For example, 15 ng = 15 x 1×10-9 = 1.5×10-8 kg.
• To convert nanograms to grams, multiply by 1×10-6. For example, 25 ng = 25 x 1×10-6 = 2.5×10-5 g.
• To convert nanograms to milligrams, multiply by 0.001. For example, 30 ng = 30 x 0.001 = 0.03 mg.

## Where Nanograms are Used

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

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

## History of Nanograms

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

• The nanogram 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 nanogram 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 nanogram 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 nanogram was also referred to as the billionth of a gram or the millimicrogram in some countries and contexts to emphasize its extremely small size.

## Example Conversions of Nanograms to Other Units

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

• 1 ng = 2.2×10-12 lb
• 1 ng = 1.54×10-8 gr
• 1 ng = 1×10-12 t
• 1 ng = 1×10-9 kg
• 1 ng = 1×10-6 g
• 1 ng = 0.001 mg
• 1 ng = 6.02×10-14 u
• 1 ng = 1.66×10-24 kN
• 1 ng = 3.53×10-14 oz
• 1 ng = 5.64×10-13 dr
Nanograms also can be marked as Nanogrammes (alternative British English spelling in UK).

## 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.
