Forum rules
Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

I'm afraid this is about as easy as it gets, using US/Imperial units is a lot worse!

micrograms to grams - There are 1,000,000 micrograms in a gram (that's what the 'micro' bit means), just divide by 1,000,000
Grams to micrograms - Reverse operation, multiply
grams to killograms - There are 1000 grams in a kilogram (kilo means 1000), so I'm sure you can work this bit out in same way as above.
millograms to liters - bit more complicated as milligrams (note spelling) are a measure of mass, and liters (litres in Europe) are a measure of volume, however if the substance is water then 1 liter = 1000 cubic centimetres = 1000 grams and there are 1000 milligrams in a gram, so you can do the rest!
