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 substituted by a new definition.

Nowadays 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 exactly 0.001 tonne. It can be also divided into 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.
