Both the dalton and the gram are units of mass. The dalton is defined as
1/12 the mass of a C-12 atom. A mole of molecules will have the gram mass
of it's molecular weight in daltons. So, one IgG molecule has a mass of
about 150 kdaltons, and a mole of IgG molecules has a mass of about 150 kg.

>moon, whilst it will weight much less than 150 kg on the moon

>>I thought 150kDa means approximately 150,000grams?
>>I am confused. So can someone confirm this is right:
