# Micrograms to Milligrams conversion

Micro is a prefix and its origin is Greek. Micro mean is small and its prefix value is usually 10-6. It is denoted by µ. One microgram means one-millionth part of a gram. This converter helps you to convert such small values into a relatively larger weight unit milligram. A milligram is denoted by mg and is equal to 1/1000grams. Here you can conveniently convert the microgram values into milligrams.

## How to convert Micrograms to Milligrams

1 microgram (μg) is equal to 1/1000 milligram (mg):

1 μg = (1/1000) mg = 0.001 mg

The mass m in milligrams (mg) is equal to the mass m in micrograms (μg) divided by 1000:

m(mg) = m(μg) / 1000

#### Example

Convert 5 μg to milligrams:

m(mg) = 5 μg / 1000 = 0.005 mg

### How it Convert such smaller weights?

This converter is designed to convert small weights in micrograms to comparatively larger weight unit milligrams which are one millionth and one-thousandth part of a gram respectively.

Since we convert from smaller values to larger ones, we have to go with the division method. This converter divides the given weight in micrograms by 1000 as 1μg is equal to 1/1000 or 0.001 mg.

Is 1mg the same as 1000 mcg?

1 milligram (mg) is equal to 1000 micrograms (μg).
