centigrams are 1/100 of a gram
A centigram is a measure of weight equal to 0.01 grams or 0.00035274 ounces.
4.5 kg is 4.5 * 1000g. 1g is 100 centigrams. Therefore 4.5kg is 450 000 centigrams.
a centigram is 1/100th of a gram
10cg equals 100mg (10mg per centigram). *Centigrams x 10 = mg *Milligrams/10 = cg
16mg equates to 1.6cg (@10mg per centigram). *Centigrams x 10 = mg *Milligrams/10 = cg
474 kilograms is 47,400,000 centigrams.
10 times bigger. In the metric, or Sytem International, centi- is a prefix that means "one-hundredth." Milli- is a prefix that means "one-thousandth." A hundredth is ten time…s more in magnitude than a thousandth of anything. So just as a centimeter is ten times longer than a millimeter, a centigram is 10 times bigger (or more massive) than a milligram.
There are 10 milligrams per centigram: 4cg = 4 x 10 = 40mg
A centigram is a measure of weight, NOT length . It has no equivalent in length.
