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

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

Firstly, the 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.

Later, in 1889 the kilogram was defined 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 International Prototype of the Kilogram was in use until 2019, when it was substituted 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 0.001 tonne. It is also divided into 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.
