Micrograms to Milligrams

This is a conversion calculator that is used to convert the mass in micrograms (mcg) to mass in milligrams (mg). If you want to perform a conversion, use the blank text field to enter the value in micrograms. Click the ‘Convert' button to begin the conversion from micrograms to milligrams. The result will be shown below the controls in milligrams. This calculator also indicates the method used in the conversion which is displayed below the result.

The efficiency of Micrograms to milligrams converter is enhanced by the "Reset" button. This control erases the previous calculations from the calculator with a single click. It is used when you want to perform new conversions.

Example

Convert 200 micrograms to milligrams.

Solution

First, enter the value in micrograms (200) in the blank text field. Press the ‘Convert' button to initiate the conversion from micrograms to milligrams. The result is displayed as;

Milligrams: 0.2 mg

Calculation:

= 200 μg / 1000

= 0.2 mg

This calculator uses a simple formula when executing the conversions. It can only perform one calculation at a time. Use the "Reset" button to erase the previous conversions if you have new values to be converted to milligrams. 

How to convert micrograms to milligrams

1 μg = (1/1000) mg = 0.001 mg

This implies that one microgram is equivalent to 1000 milligrams (mg).

The mass in milligrams is calculated by dividing the mass in micrograms by 1000. It is expressed as;

M (mg) = M (μg) / 1000

Using the example above;

Convert 200 micrograms to milligrams,

The calculation will be;

M (mg) = 200 μg / 1000

= 0.2 milligrams (mg)

The Micrograms to Milligrams conversion table can be used to determine common conversions from micrograms to milligrams on a scale of 0 μg to 1000 μg.

How many milligrams in a microgram?

The mass units' conversion factor of micrograms to milligrams is 0.001. If you want to find out the number of milligrams in one microgram, you multiply the value in micrograms by the conversion factor.

1 μg = 0.001 mg

This means that there are 0.001 milligrams in one microgram. For example, how many milligrams are in 3000 micrograms?

= 3000 x 0.001

= 3 mg

Therefore, there are 3 milligrams in 3000 micrograms.

A milligram is abbreviated as "mg" and it is equivalent to a millionth of a kilogram. A microgram is used in nutritional supplement and pharmaceutical labeling, typically abbreviated as "mcg" to avoid confusion. This is because the technical disciplines do not recognize the "µ" prefix.
