Calculating the amount of PCR product

Hi, how would I go about calculating the amount of PCR product produced if I added 1 microgram of genomic DNA and ran a PCR for 30 cycles in order to amplify a 300bp sequence. I have no idea about the volume of any other reagents used in the experiment and my initial attempts at calculating the amount produced a stupidly large quantity of DNA (over 10^20g!!)

Any help would be greately appreciated :)

Thanks
Nick
