A **nanogram****(ng**) is a metric unit of mass equal to one billionth of a gram or **10⁻⁹ grams**. Due to the small size of this unit, it is often used in science and medicine.

**Use calculator:**

- Enter the number of nanograms into the calculator.
- Select the unit into which the nanograms are to be converted.
- Click on "generate" to get the result.

Before we look specifically at converting nanograms, it is helpful to have a basic understanding of the metric unit scale. Here are some of the basic metric units for mass:

**Kilogram (kg)**: basic unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI).**Gram (g**): 1/1000 kilogram.**Milligram (mg)**: 10^-3 gram or 0.001 gram.**Microgram (µg)**: 10^-6 gram or 0.000001 gram.**Nanogram (ng)**: 10^-9 gram.

## Conversion from nanogram to other units

**Nanogram to microgram**- 1 microgram = 1,000 nanograms
- Formula: $µg=ng×1_{3}$

**Nanogram in milligrams**- 1 milligram = 1,000,000 nanograms
- Formula: $mg=ng×1_{6}$

**Nanogram in grams**- 1 gram = 1,000,000,000 nanograms
- Formula: $g=ng×1_{9}$

**Nanogram in kilogram**- 1 kilogram = 10^12 nanogram
- Formula: kg = ng x 10^-12

## Practical application

The conversion of nanograms into other units is particularly important in research and medicine. One example would be the measurement of trace substances in a sample. For example, if a researcher has a result of 500 ng of a particular molecule and wants to convert this to micrograms, they would use the following calculation:

**500 ng × 10^3 = 0.5 µg**

This means that 500 ng corresponds to the same mass value as 0.5 µg.

## Conclusion

Converting from nanograms to other metric units requires a basic understanding of the metric scale and the relationships between the different units. With the above guide and the appropriate conversion factors, anyone can easily switch between these units and perform accurate calculations.
