Conversion Tables and Methods to Use when converting

from Metric Units to Metric Units (weight)

 Gram – Length Kilo – Thousand Liter – Volume Milli – Thousand Gram – Mass/Weight Centi – Hundred Celsius – Temperature Deci – Ten

### Weight/Mass

 1,000 milligrams (mg) = 1 gram 10 centigrams = 100 milligrams (mg) 1 gram (g) = 1,000 milligrams 1,000 grams = 1 kilogram (kg) = 1,000,000 mg 1,000 kilograms = 1,000,000 grams

### Operations for Weight

Example: To get Milligrams from grams you multiply the grams by 1000

You Have: 23 grams

You want milligrams: So, milligrams = 23 Grams

We Multiply the grams by 1000: 23g x 1000 = 23000mg

You want milligrams: So, milligrams = 23 Grams

There are 23000 milligrams in 23 grams or 1000 milligrams for every gram.

 If you have this Do this To get this milligrams (mg) Divide by 10 (mg/10) Move Decimal one place to Left centigram (cg) centigrams (cg) Multiply by 10 (cg * 10) Move decimal one place to the right Milligrams (mg) Grams (g) Multiply by 100 (g * 100) Centigrams (cg) Centigrams (cm) Divide by 100 (cg/100) Move decimal two places to the left. Grams (g) Milligrams (mg) Divide by 1000 (mg/1000) Move decimal three places to the left. Grams (g)
