TABLE 2: Scales of Units

Below is a list of acceptable prefixes to the units provided in Table 1.
You can use a combination of the prefix from Table 2 and the actual unit name from Table 1
when you define units for measurement domain properties.

  • microgram can be used if your domain definition is ng
