The gram is a unit of mass in the metric system, which is a decimal-based system of measurement widely used around the world. It is part of the International System of Units (SI), which provides standardized units for measuring various quantities.
In the metric system, the gram is defined as one thousandth of a kilogram. The kilogram (kg) is the base unit of mass in the SI system, and it is commonly used to measure larger masses. So, one kilogram is equal to 1000 grams.
The term "gram" originated from the Latin word "gramma," which means a small weight or something written. It was introduced as a unit of mass in the late 18th century and has been widely adopted since then.
