It stands for dekagram.
'Dag' can have two meanings. One meaing is 'day', the other is '(good)bye'.
According to the Urban Dictionary: A dag is technically the matted wool on a sheep's tail, but in typical useage throughout Australia, it refers to people who don't have a n…eat, tidy or cultured appearance. It can also refer to a person who tends to be quite informal. It is not necessarily a derogatory term in modern useage, but may have negative connotations - ie " He's a real dag!" or as an adjective - " His clothes are daggy." Often it is used in relation to someone unfashionable. The term "dag" is also a type of compliment as used between mates, both male and female. For example, "you dag" means you're a good friend, and I know you don't mind me having a bit of fun with you, and putting you down in a way that I don't really mean. A real dag is the matted sheep droppings and dirt mixed with the wool on the sheep's backside. To clean the dags out of the wool means to clean the matted wool of droppings. It's also any long, dangling, matted part of the wool. Dag may even refer to the long, matted, untidy and dirty parts of another animal's coat, e.g. dags on a long-haired dog, especially the parts that hang down close to the ground and get dirty, or dags in a neglected horse's tail, etc. dekagram
This is the way i convert .. K H D B D C M . K=Kilo(meters). H=Hecto(meters). D=Deci(meters). B=Basic Unit(Meters in this case). D=Decka(meters). C=Centi(meters). M=Mi…lli(meters). I remember this order by saying "King Henry Died By Drinking Chocolate Milk.". So know lets convert. If you wanted to convert meters into millimeters(B to M) then you would see it is 3 letters to the right.(K H D B D C M)So all you do is take your Measurement in meters(lets say 23.447m) all you would do is move the decimal 3 places to the right. (So now it would be 23.447) But if you wanted to convert meters to kilometers, then you know K is three places to the left of B. So all you do is move your decimal 3 places to the right.(0.023447 Would be meters converted into kilometers.
In the metric system.. Dag means dekagram
The base units for the SI system are: length-meter, mass-kilogram, time-second, temperature interval-deg kelvin(or celsius), electric current-ampere, amount of substance…-mole, luminous intensity-candela. Some derived units are: area-hectare(10,000 sq m), volume-liter, weight-newton, energy-joule, power-watt, pressure-pascal or bar, frequency-hertz, angle-radian, potential difference-volt, resistance-ohm, capacitance-farad, inductance-henry

Metric thread pitch is measured directly from crest to crest of the thread form. For example the distance from crest to crest of a M8 x 1.25 MM thread would be 1….25 MM. Another way to measure it would be linear travel per rotation, in which case a M8 x 1.25 MM thread would travel 1.25 MM each rotation.
Everything. There is seven base units: metre, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, candela and mole. From these seven base units, several other units are derived. In addition t…o the SI units, there is also a set of non-SI units accepted for use with SI which includes some commonly used units such as the litre.
It can be used to measure almost anything that is measurable in length. A metric ruler is measured in centimeters.
Metric is a system or standard of measurements.
dag is an abbreviation for decagram which is 10 grams.
Decimeters might be used, but that unit is not very common. Centimeters are usually used in such cases; sometimes millimeters too.
