# WEIGHT CONVERSIONS – METRIC/IMPERIAL

When using recipes you should never mix measurements.  As this is not an exact science, you should always stick to either the metric or imperial quantities for ingredients.

Here are some useful conversion charts for Metric and Imperial followed by the formulae for converting between the two.

 METRIC UNIT METRIC EQUIVALENT IMPERIAL EQUIVALENT 1 milligram (mg) = = 0.0154 grain 1 gram (g) = 1000 mg = 0.0353 ounces 1 kilogram (kg) = 1000 g = 2.2046 pounds 1 tonne (t) = 1000 kg = 0.9842 ton IMPERIAL UNIT IMPERIAL EQUIVALENT METRIC EQUIVALENT 1 ounce (oz) = 437.5 grains = 28.350 g 1 pound (lb) = 16 ounces = 0.4536 kg 1 stone (st) = 14 pounds = 6.3503 kg 1 hundredweight (cwt) = 112 pounds = 50.802 kg 1 ton = 20 cwt/2240 lbs. = 1.0161 tonnes
