NOTE. The United Nation's 1966 World Weights and Measures (page 43) lists “hang” as a unit of mass in the shi zhi system of China, = 50 grams. We suspect this is a transcriber's error ("h" for "li") for the metrified “liang”, specifically the shìliǎng, 市 兩.


In Laos, a unit of mass, = 375 grams. opens a new page containing a chart that shows relationships between this unit and other units in its system
