# Cookbook:Gram

Cookbook | Recipes | Ingredients

The **gram** or **gramme** (old BE), abbreviated **g**, is a unit of weight. It is equal to one thousandth (¹⁄₁_{,}₀₀₀ [0.001]) of a kg. There are 454⁵⁄₁₁ (454.54) **g** per **pound**. Since there are sixteen (16) ounces in a pound, there are 28⁹⁄₂₂ (28.409) g in one ounce. As many recipes have been crudely converted from one system to another, a similarly crude conversion back may yield the original recipe. (Cooking is not rocket science.)
