## Conversion Formula

By using the online converter calculator on this page, you can calculate how many centigrams are in 'X' atomic mass units (X is the number of atomic mass units you want to convert to centigrams). In order to convert a value from atomic mass units to centigrams (from amu to cg) simply type the number of atomic mass units to be converted to centigrams and then click on the 'convert' button. The formula used for converting a specific value from atomic mass units to centigrams is:

X atomic mass units * cf = Y centigrams

where

X = the specific value to be converted (in atomic mass units)

cf = the conversion factor from atomic mass units to centigrams

Y = the result (in centigrams)

*Example*

Let's suppose that you have a value of mass of 278 atomic mass units and want to express it in centigrams.

278 amu = (278 × 1.66053892173E-22) cg

278 amu = 4.6162982024094E-20 cg

## Conversion factor

1 atomic mass unit is equal to 1.66053892173E-22 centigram

(1 amu = 1.66053892173E-22 cg )
