What are the important parts of a conversion factor?

Examples of Conversion Factors

  • 1 gallon = 3.78541 liters (volume)
  • 1 pound = 16 ounces (mass)
  • 1 kilogram = 1,000 grams (mass)
  • 1 pound = 453.592 grams (mass)
  • 1 minute = 60000 milliseconds (time)
  • 1 square mile = 2.58999 square kilometers (area)

What is the conversion factor between mass and volume?

The density of a substance tells you the mass of exactly one unit of volume of that substance. This essentially means that density can be used as a conversion factor to go from the mass of a sample to the volume it occupies, or vice versa. Now, density relates two quantities, mass and volume.

What is the conversion factor of length?

Is ug or ng bigger?

Convert Micrograms to Nanograms 1 Microgram is exactly 0.000000001 kilograms (SI unit). As per the prefix micro it is a millionth of a gram; a gram is a thousandth of a kilogram, the SI base unit of mass. 1 µg = 0.000000001 kg. 1 ng = 0.000000000001 kg.

Is G bigger than Ng?

Nanogram is a metric unit of mass. It is equal to 0.000000000001 gram, or one millionth of a milligram.

What is a NG measurement?

Nanograms per milliliter, abbreviated ng/mL, is the unit of measure most commonly used to express drug testing cut-off levels and quantitative test results in urine and oral fluid. A nanogram is 10-9 grams.
