Well, let me bring it closer to you in this post.

Gram is widely used as a unit of measurement for ingredients and grocery shopping across the world. Also, a number of standards and legal requirements for nutrition labels on food products demand relative contents to be stated per 100 g of the product. There is more to learn about the gram.

What is Gram

The gram, abbreviated as g or gm is the cgs (centimeter/gram/second) unit of measurement of weight and mass in the metric system. When it comes to weight, a gram is equal to a thousandth kilogram. As for mass, a gram is equal to a thousandth of a liter of water at 4 degree centigrade.

From history, the word ‘gramme’ dates back to 1795 when it was adopted by the French National Conversion. French ‘gramme’ was taken from the Late Latin term ‘gramma’. This unit of measurement was the fundamental unit of mass in the 19th-century centimeter-gram-second system of units(CGS). The system co-existed with MKS system of units, proposed during the 20th century,1901 to be precise. However, when MKS was chosen for the SI base units in 1960, the gram became displaced by the kilogram as the fundamental unit of mass.

Converting gram to pounds is quite simple. You start by memorizing the equivalent value of a single gram in pound(0.0022). You should then multiply this number with the value you wish to convert to pound.

Reversing the process is also easy. You should first memorize the equivalent of each pound in grams(453.59)then multiply the value you want to convert by 453.59. What you get is the equivalent in grams.

You can also accurately convert grams to ounces by either using the conversion chart or modern day conversion calculator. You need to know that one gram is equivalent to 0.0352739619 ounces. However, this may be confusing especially when converting large numbers. So in this case, it is advisable to use a chart instead. This will limit the denomination of the desired numbers. You can also use the online conversion if you want a sensible method to convert the digits.

This method is proven to display more accurate and precise results. The use of ounces in more popular in the United States as the British colonies recognize the use of grams as a standard unit of measuring weight. So here is what you need to know about ounces.

What is Ounce

The ounce is a unit of mass. The ounce is defined as one sixteenth (1/16) of a pound. Ounce is primarily used in the United States to measure food portions and packed food, boxing gloves, areal density of fabric and paper and so many things. Although ounce ceased to be a legal unit of measure in Britain in 2000, it is still being used in most restaurants to describe burger or steak portion sizes.

There are different system of units you need to know when talking about ounces. One of them is the international troy ounce. This is equal to 480 grains. When converting to grams, then you need to understand that the international troy ounce is equal to 31.1034768 grams. The now obsolete troy pound consists of 12 troy ounces.

Troy ounce is today only used to describe the mass of precious metals like platinum, gold, silver, palladium, and rhodium. The most common products produced and marketed in troy ounces are the Bullion coins.

Metric ounces is the other system of units redefined by some countries. For instance, in 1820, the Dutch redefined their ounce as 100 grams. This amendment has been inherited, taught and adopted in different places including Indonesia, beginning in elementary school.

Historical Ounces

There are different countries that had already adopted the use of ounce as a unit of measurement. For instance, Maria Theresa ounce was introduced in Ethiopia and some countries across Europe. A Maria Theresa ounce was equivalent to 28.0668 g or one Maria Theresa thaler.

Spanish ounce, on the other hand, was 1/16 of a pound which is equivalent to 28.75 g. Tower ounce of 450 grains was commonly used in the English mints in the Tower of London. This traces back to the era of Anglo-Saxon coinage weight standard. However, it was abolished in 1527 by Henry VIII in favor of the Troy ounce.

Conclusive Conclusion

There are 28.3495231 grams in an ounce. This is because, by definition, 1 kg is equal to 2.20462 pounds which converts to 35.27392 ounces. So since there are 1000 grams in a kilogram,1000 / 35.27392 will give you 28.349 grams in an ounce.
