The word gram is defined as a metric unit of weight. A gram is equal to one-thousandth, that is 1/1, 000th of a kilogram (which is represented by the symbol kg). It is represented by the symbol g (that is, the lower-case letter g of the English alphabet). In other words, one kilogram (that is 1kg) is equivalent to 1, 000 grams (that is, 1, 000g) or one gram (that is 1g) is equivalent to one-thousandth of a kilogram (which is 1/1, 000th of a kg).

Gram is the last name of the Danish physician and bacteriologist Hans Christian Gram. He developed the method of staining bacteria to distinguish between the various types of bacteria. He was born in the year 1853 and died at the age of 85 in the year 1938. In J.R.R. Tolkein's Middle-Earth legendarium, Gram was the name of the eighth king of the kingdom of Rohan.
