A centigram is a unit of mass in the metric system and corresponds to 0.01 grams. The prefix "centi-" stands for 1/100, so there are 100 centigrams in one gram.

## Conversion to other metric units

**Milligram (mg):**

1 cg = 10 mg

This means that there are 10 milligrams in a centigram.**Gram (g**):

1 cg = 0.01 g

A centigram is 1/100 of a gram.**Kilogram (kg**):

1 cg = 0.00001 kg

Since 1 kilogram contains 100,000 centigrams, the conversion is corresponding.**Tonne (t):**

1 cg = 0.00000001 t

It must be remembered that one tonne contains one million grams or 100 million centigrams.

## Conversion to imperial and US units

**Ounce (oz):**

1 cg = 0.00035274 oz

As there are 28.3495 grams in an ounce, the conversion from centigram to ounce is somewhat more complicated.**Pound (lb):**

1 cg = 0.00002205 lb

One pound contains 453.59237 grams, so the conversion factor from centigram to pound is correspondingly small.

## Conclusion

Knowledge of conversion factors is useful in many scientific and everyday contexts. It facilitates the understanding of weights and masses in different units and enables precise measurements and calculations. While the centigram is not the most commonly used unit, it provides a convenient intermediate step for converting between smaller and larger units of mass.
