It's extremely easy -- you just need to know metric prefixes and you shouldn't even care about the nature of the units. All prefixes are powers of 10.

For example, 'milli' (m) = 0.001, so 508mg = 0.001 * 508g = 0.508g
And so on.

All metric prefixes can be found here: http://www.convert-me.com/en/metric_conversions_en.html
