The **Mass and Weight Unit Conversion Calculator** helps you to *convert quickly and accurately between different units of measurement including kilograms, ounces and pounds.*

**convert**between the following

**units of mass**:

*metric tons, long tons, short tons, kilograms, decagrams, grams, milligrams, ounces, pounds, carats.*

- Metric ton (t) converter
- Long ton (lt) converter
- Short ton (tn) converter
- Kilogram (kg) converter
- Decagram (dag) converter
- Gram (g) converter
- Milligram (mg) converter
- Ounce (oz) converter
- Pound (lbs) converter
- Carat (ct) converter

## How shall I use the Mass and weight unit converter?

Select the **unit of mass** you want to *convert from*, then the unit you want to *convert to*. Then enter the mass value you want to convert in the box below. The conversion happens immediately. Our **Mass Unit Conversion Calculator** works in both directions: If you enter a value in the other field, it can also change the unit back from it. You can also decide how many decimal places you would like to see in the result. If you click on the Clear button, you can delete the digits you have already entered.

## Which units of measurement does the Mass and Weight Unit Conversion Calculator know?

Conversion can be run between the following units of mass and weight*:

**Units of the SI system**: kilogram (derived units: dekagram, gram, milligram).**Non-SI units**: ton, quintal, carat**British (Imperial) or US (customary) units**: pound (lb), ounce (oz)

*The range of units of weight and mass may be extended on request.

## How shall I convert between units of mass or weight?

First, a short sidenote: In everyday life, *we often use the word “weight” to refer to mass, even though the two concepts are not exactly the same*. Mass is a property of physical bodies that measures their inertia. Unlike weight, mass remains the same wherever the physical body is placed (i.e. the mass is constant).

*Conversion between mass units usually involves a simple multiplication or division.* You only have to know the correct conversion rate. This piece of information is enough to be able to convert 1 kg into grams. **Let’s take a simple example!**

Let’s say that you want to find out how many grams 5 kilograms weigh. We know that 1 kg = 1000 g (so this is the conversion rate between kg and g). So if you want to calculate how many grams 5 kilograms are, you need to do the following:

- You only have to multiply 5 with the conversion rate (i.e. with 1,000).
- The result is 5,000, so 5 kg = 5,000 g.
- OK, but what if you want to make a conversion in the opposite direction? If you want to convert from grams to kilograms, you have to use the conversion rate mentioned above. Yet, this is the opposite direction, so instead of multiplication, we use the conversion rate for division. In this example it means:
- You would like to know how many kilograms 5000 grams is.
- Divide 5000 by 1000.
- The result is: 5 (kg).
