Both milligrams (mg) and grams (g) are units of mass, with the following relation between them:

**1 gram (g) = 1000 milligrams (mg)**

**1 milligram (mg) = 1/1000 gram = 0.001 gram (g)**

Thus, in order to convert mass given in milligrams into the mass given in grams and vice versa, be sure to remember the following formulas:

**M _{grams} = M_{milligrams} / 1000**

**M _{milligrams} = M_{grams} * 1000**

## Milligrams to Grams and Grams to Milligrams Conversion Examples

Using conversion formulas, it is fairly easy to convert milligrams to grams and grams to milligrams:

### 500 milligrams to grams:
