We are going to start with the kilogram. The kilogram is a unit of mass. It is a basic unit in a metric system, formally known as International System of Units (in abbreviated form SI).

At times the kilogram is 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. First definition was not complicated but totally impractical to use.

Then, in 1889 the kilogram was described by the International Prototype of the Kilogram (in short form IPK). The IPK was made of 90% platinum and 10 % iridium. The IPK was used until 2019, when it was replaced by another 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 0.001 tonne. It is also divided to 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.
