Is ug equivalent to a micro gram?

User Avatar
Yes. The "u" should really be the Greek letter "mu" - μ. If you can't see this correctly, the left line of the "u" should go further down. When you have technical difficulties writing it, a "u" is acceptable.

How many yams in a pound?

User Avatar
Depends on the size of the yams. Ones I cooked today weighed about 1 pound each. If you're truly talking about yams, the more accurate question would be: How many pounds in a yam, since the real thing is truly enormous at up to 5ft long, 6 inches high, and 150lb. Sweet potatos are not yams. They are actually of a totally different family of tubers, but on the average they run anywhere from 4oz to 18oz.
