Questions and answers on how to convert things from one unit or system to another

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.

when trying to convert micrograms to megagrams, is this the right formula to use?

18.46mcg x (10^-6g / 1mcg) x (10^9Mg / 1g)

aaalright i think i figured it out and if so you can delete this thread and my three unnecessary posts in the "unit conversion" thread.

is this the right method:

18.46mcg x (1g / 10^-6mcg) x (10^-6Mg / 1g)

i used an exponent of 9 in the original question. im all confused. :oops:

are any of these right
