We will start with the kilogram. The kilogram is a unit of mass. It is a base unit in a metric system, known also as International System of Units (in abbreviated form SI).

At times the kilogram is written as kilogramme. The symbol of this unit is kg.

The kilogram was defined first time in 1795. The kilogram was described as the mass of one liter of water. This definition was not complicated but impractical to use.

Later, in 1889 the kilogram was described by the International Prototype of the Kilogram (in short form IPK). The International Prototype of the Kilogram was made of 90% platinum and 10 % iridium. The IPK 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 could be also divided to 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.

The avoirdupois pound was enforced in the Weights and Measures Act 1963. The definition of this unit was written 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.”
