The gram is a unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI). It is equal to the mass of one cubic centimeter of pure water at the temperature of maximum density (approximately 4 °C). It is often used in daily life, for example to measure the mass of food or other consumer goods.

The Milligram

The milligram is a unit of mass that is equal to one thousandth of a gram. This unit is often used in scientific contexts, such as chemistry and medicine, where small masses need to be measured. Examples are the mass of chemical substances or the dosage of drugs.

## The Ratio Between Gram and Milligram
