How Many Grams Is Equal To 1 Tola Gold & Silver In Nepal

How Many Grams In 1 Tola Gold & Silver?: – Gram (g), also written gram, unit of mass or weight that is used above all in the centimeter-second-gram measurement system (see International System of Units). One gram is equal to 0.001 kg.

The gram is almost the same (originally it had to be the same, see metric system) to the mass of a cubic centimeter of pure water at 4 ° C (39.2 ° F), the temperature at which the water reaches its maximum density in normal condition. Earth pressures the gram of force is equal to the weight of a gram of standard gravity mass.

For greater precision, the mass can be weighed at a point where the acceleration due to gravity is 980.655 cm / sec2. The official abbreviation of the International System of Units is g, but gm was also used.

I tola, transliterated also as tolah or Tole, is a unit of ancient traditional Indian masses and in South Asia, now standardized as 180 troy grains (11.3398038 grams) or exactly 3/8 troy ounces.

It was also used in Aden and Zanzibar: in the latter, a Tola was equivalent to 175.90 Troy cereals (0.97722222 English Tolas or 11.33980925 grams).

The tola is a Vedic measure, with the name derived from the Sanskrit tol which means “weigh” or “weight”.  A tola was traditionally the weight of 100 rats (ruttee),  and its exact weight varied according to the position.

However, it is also convenient for a mass of currency: pre-colonial different currencies, including the currency Akbar the Great (1556-1605), had a mass of “a tola” within a slight variation. The first Rupee coined by Sher Shah Suri (1540-1545), had a mass of 178 grains of Troy, or about 1% less than the British tola. The British East India Company issued a rupee silver coin of 180 grains of Troy, and this became the standard practice mass for the tola until the 20th century.

Britons tola 180 grains of Troy (from 1833) can be considered more as a redefinition of standardization: the first standard in the president of Bengal, the system of “sicca weights”, was the mass of a rupee Murshidabad, 179,666 troy grains For the largest weights used in commerce (in the Bengali presidency), it was found that the change in standards before 1833 was greater than the correction.

The tola formed the basis for mass units under the British British system, and was also the standard measure of gold and silver bars. Though tola has been legitimately replaced by metric units since 1956, it is in use, and is a common name for gold bars in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Singapore, with a bar ten tola as In Nepal, the minting of tola-sized gold coins continues to this day, although the Nepal coin is called rupiah and has no official connection with the tola.

It is also used in most of the gold markets (bazaar / souk) in the United Arab Emirates and in all the countries of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (CCG).

Tola is used as a quantity of charas.  On the black market, however, a tola is equal to a mass of ~ 10 g and not to the actual mass of a tola.
