The standard unit of mass in the metric system is the gram.Other units of mass and their equivalents in grams are as follows:1 milligram = 0.001 gram1 centigram = 0.01 gram1 decigram = 0.1 gram1 kilogram = 1000 gramsWe symbolize these masses as follows:1 milligram = 1 mg1 centigram = 1 cg1 decigram = 1 dg1 gram = 1 g1 kilogram = 1 kgFor reference, 1 gram is about the mass of a paper clip.One kilogram is about the mass of a liter of water.CommentThe SI base unit for mass is the kilogram, not the gram. And we do not italicise the symbols.

The SI prefix for a tenth is centi-; centimetre, centilitre, centigram . This is almost never used, centimetres are sometimes used to describe length, but in most cases divisions of thousands are used, milli-, micro, nano, kilo, mega.
