Definitions:

Gram (abbreviation: gm): is a SI (metric) system unit of mass. Where, at the temperature of melting ice, it is the absolute weight of a volume equal to the hundredth part of a metre cube of pure water.

Atomic Mass Unit (abbreviations: amu, or u): also known as dalton (symbol: Da), is a standard unit of mass that used on an atomic or molecular scale (atomic mass). One unified atomic mass unit is about the mass of one nucleon (either a single proton or neutron) and equivalent to 1 g/mol.


How to Convert Grams to Atomic Mass Units

Example: How many atomic mass units are equivalent to 87.4 grams?


As;

1 grams = 6.024E+23 atomic mass units

87.4 grams = Y atomic mass units

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 87.4 times 6.024E+23 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 87.4 * 6.024E+23 / 1 = 5.264976E+25 atomic mass units

Answer is: 5.264976E+25 atomic mass units are equivalent to 87.4 grams.
