# What is the unit of G g

#### Mass / weight units

The metric system of measurement uses the units of mass: gram (g), kilogram (kg) and ton (t).

 1000 g = 1 kg 1000 kg = 1 ton

By using the prefixes of the International System of Units SI ('Système international d’unités ’), weights can be expressed as multiples or fractions of a gram:

 1 gigaton (Gt) = 1 000 000 000 000 000 g 1 megaton (Mt) = 1 000 000 000 000 g 1 ton (t) = 1,000,000 g 1 kilogram (kg) = 1,000 g 1 gram (G) = 1 g 1 milligram (mg) = 0.001 g 1 microgram (µg) = 0.000 001 g 1 nanogram (ng) = 0.000 000 001 g 1 picogram (pg) = 0.000 000 000 001g

Also the traditional British and US weight systems can be represented as metric units:

 Metric unit 1 US ton (Ton) = 0.907 ton 1 GB ton (Ton) = 1,016 ton 1 lb (Lb) = 453.59 g 1 oz (Ounce) = 28.35g
