At times the kilogram could be written as kilogramme. The symbol of the kilogram is kg.

Firstly, the definition of a kilogram was formulated in 1795. The kilogram was described as the mass of one liter of water. First definition was simply but totally impractical to use.

Later, in 1889 the kilogram was defined using the International Prototype of the Kilogram (in short form IPK). The IPK was made of 90% platinum and 10 % iridium. The International Prototype of the Kilogram was used until 2019, when it was substituted by another definition.

The new definition of the kilogram is based on physical constants, especially Planck constant. The official definition is: “The kilogram, symbol kg, is the SI unit of mass. It is defined by taking the fixed numerical value of the Planck constant h to be 6.62607015×10−34 when expressed in the unit J⋅s, which is equal to kg⋅m2⋅s−1, where the metre and the second are defined in terms of c and ΔνCs.”

One kilogram is equal 0.001 tonne. It can be also divided into 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.

The avoirdupois pound was implemented in the Weights and Measures Act 1963.
