Full Answer

Grams are a metric unit for measuring mass, which is different than weight. One gram weighs about the same as a paperclip, a pinch of salt or dollar bill. Other common metric units for mass are kilograms (1 kg = 1,000 g) and tonnes. The standard units for mass are ounces, pounds and tons.
