We are going to begin with the kilogram. The kilogram is a unit of mass. It is a basic unit in a metric system, that is International System of Units (in short form SI).

From time to time the kilogram can be written as kilogramme. The symbol of the kilogram is kg.

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

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

Today the definition of the kilogram is build on physical constants, especially Planck constant. Here is the official definition: “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 0.001 tonne. It can be also divided into 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.

The definition of the pound was placed in first section of this act: “The yard or the metre shall be the unit of measurement of length and the pound or the kilogram shall be the unit of measurement of mass by reference to which any measurement involving a measurement of length or mass shall be made in the United Kingdom; and- (a) the yard shall be 0.9144 metre exactly; (b) the pound shall be 0.45359237 kilogram exactly.”
