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

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

The kilogram was defined first time in 1795. The kilogram was defined as the mass of one liter of water. This definition was simply but totally impractical to use.

Then, in 1889 the kilogram was described by 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.

The new definition of the kilogram is based 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.

The pound is in use in the Imperial and United States customary systems of measurements. Naturally, this unit is in use also in other systems. The symbol of the pound is lb or “.

The international avoirdupois pound has no descriptive definition. It is defined as 0.45359237 kilograms. One avoirdupois pound can be divided into 16 avoirdupois ounces or 7000 grains.

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