# How much does a gram weigh on a digital scale?

A digital scale is generally more accurate in terms of readings than an analog scale. A gram is a unit of mass equal to one-thousandth of a kilogram.

## Answer: Accuracy and unit decide how much a gram is measured on a digital scale.

Go through the explanation to understand better.

**Explanation:**

The quantity measured on a digital scale depends on two important factors:

1) Accuracy of the digital scale

A 95% accurate digital scale would measure 1 gram equal to somewhere between 0.95 - 0.98 grams.

2) Unit in which it measures that particular quantity

A digital scale that measures mass in ounces will measure 1 gram as 0.0353 ounces.

### Thus, accuracy and unit decide how much a gram is measured on a digital scale.
