    2.1 kg x (1000g/kg) = 2.1x10^3 g x (10^9ng/1g) = 2.1x10^12. ng You always want to ensure that you multiply the number You have by a conversion factor ensuring that the unit you want to get is in the numerator. In this case If you notice we convert kilograms to grams, that kilograms cancel out and we are left with grams.
