One gram is closer to an ounce than a pound, though 1 ounce is still much larger than a gram, as 1 ounce is equal to 28.35 grams. The metric system is set up so each unit increases by 10. For instance, a kilogram is 1,000 times larger than a gram, which means one can multiply grams by 1,000 to reach the same mass in kilograms. The metric system is used widely across the world, though it is mostly used in scientific circles in the United States.
