## How to convert

1 nanogram (ng) = 1000 picogram (pg). Nanogram (ng) is a unit of Weight used in Metric system. Picogram (pg) 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).

## Picograms: A Unit of Weight

Picograms are a unit of weight that are used for measuring extremely small masses, such as atoms, molecules, and particles. Picograms are also known as billionths of a gram. The symbol for picogram is pg.

## Definition of the Picogram

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

The picogram is equal to about 2.2×10-15 pounds or 1.54×10-11 grains. The picogram is also equal to about 6.02×10-17 atomic mass units or 1.66×10-27 kilograms.

## How to Convert Picograms

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

• To convert picograms to pounds, multiply by 2.2×10-15. For example, 10 pg = 10 x 2.2×10-15 = 2.2×10-14 lb.
• To convert picograms to grains, multiply by 1.54×10-11. For example, 5 pg = 5 x 1.54×10-11 = 7.7×10-11 gr.
• To convert picograms to tonnes, multiply by 1×10-15. For example, 20 pg = 20 x 1×10-15 = 2×10-14 t.
• To convert picograms to kilograms, multiply by 1×10-12. For example, 15 pg = 15 x 1×10-12 = 1.5×10-11 kg.
• To convert picograms to grams, multiply by 1×10-9. For example, 25 pg = 25 x 1×10-9 = 2.5×10-8 g.
• To convert picograms to milligrams, multiply by 0.000001. For example, 30 pg = 30 x 0.000001 = 0.00003 mg.
