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).

At times the kilogram can 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 described using the International Prototype of the Kilogram (in short 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 replaced by another definition.

The new 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 equal 0.001 tonne. It can be also divided to 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.

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 and 7000 grains.

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