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

First definition of a kilogram was formulated in 1795. The kilogram was described as the mass of one liter of water. This definition was simply but difficult to use.

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

Today the 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 0.001 tonne. It can be also divided to 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.
