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.
