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
