Then, in 1889 the kilogram was defined by the International Prototype of the Kilogram (in abbreviated form IPK). The International Prototype of the Kilogram was made of 90% platinum and 10 % iridium. The International Prototype of the Kilogram was in use until 2019, when it was replaced by a new definition.

The new definition of the kilogram is build 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 is also divided into 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.
