## About the Weight Unit Converter

Our Weight Unit Converter automatically converts the unit you enter to another unit quickly and easily. Simply enter the value you wish to convert in the field of interest. The Weight Converter will perform conversions for all the units available on this site and display the results in the appropriate fields. You can choose how accurate (how many decimal places) the converted units should be. The default value is 4 and you can choose between 0 and 10 decimal places.

For example, if you enter `123` in the `gram` field, you will learn that it is equal to `4.3387 ounces [oz]`. This allows you to quickly convert milligrams (mg) to decagrams (dkg) or kilograms (kg) from the base SI system. The table also includes Anglo-Saxon measures and a few others such as carat or drachma.

The unit of mass in the SI system is denoted by the symbol kg (kilogram). It is defined by the fixed numerical value of Planck's constant h, which is 6.62607015 × 10-34, expressed in the unit `J s`, which is equal to `kg m2 s-1`.

The SI unit of mass is the only unit that begins with the prefix kg.

It is also worth mentioning that on 20 May 2019, the standard of 1 kg was a cylinder with a base diameter of 39 mm, made of a platinum and iridium alloy. It was kept at the International Bureau of Weights and Measures in Sevres, near Paris.

### Who can use a mass (weight) unit converter?

A mass (weight) unit converter can be useful for many people and in many situations. Here are some examples of people who can benefit from such a converter:

1. Students: The mass unit converter can be useful for students studying maths, physics, chemistry or other sciences that involve calculating and comparing the masses of different objects. It can help them convert units of mass such as kilograms, pounds, ounces or tonnes, making it easier to understand and carry out tasks.
2. Cooks and bakers: Those working in the culinary industry often need a mass unit converter to accurately measure ingredients in recipes. The converter allows you to convert the weight of ingredients from one unit to another, such as ounces to grams or kilograms to pounds.
3. Designers and engineers: Designers and engineers often need to convert the weights of different components and materials. A unit of mass converter can be useful when calculating loads, assessing strength or planning transportation.

#### Which weight units are converted?

Basic units of mass from the SI system:

• Ton [t] - 1 t = 1000 kg
• Kilogram [kg] - the base unit of mass in the metric system; the only base unit with a prefix (kilogram)
• Decagram [dkg] - 1 dkg = 0.01 kg - a metric unit of mass or weight equal to 10 grams
• Gram [g] - 1 g = 0.001 kg
• Milligram [mg] - 1 mg = 0.000001 kg

Imperial / American units of weight

• Grain [gr] - 1 gr = 0.0000647989 kg
• Drachma [dr] - 1 dr = 0.0017718452 kg
• Ounce [oz] - 1 oz = 0.0283495231 kg
• Pound [lb] - 1 lb = 0.45359237 kg
• Stone [st] - 1 st = 6.35029318 kg
• Quarter [qr] - 1 qr = 12.70058636 kg
• Hundredweight [cwt] - 1 cwt = 50.80234544 kg
• Short ton (US) - 1 ton (US) = 907.18474 kg
• Long ton (UK) - 1 ton (UK) = 1.0160469088 kg

Other weight units:

• Carat [ct] - 1 ct = 0.0002 kg = 200 mg
• Dram - 1 dram = 0.00177185 kg
• Troy ounce [oz t] - 1 oz t = 0.03110348 kg
• Troy pound - 1 troy pound = 0.37324172 kg
• Quintal [q] - 1 q = 100 kg
##### Summary
