Kilograms: A Unit of Weight

Definition of the Kilogram

A kilogram is a unit of weight that measures how much force an object or substance exerts on a scale due to gravity. It is equal to the mass of the International Prototype of the Kilogram (IPK), a cylinder of platinum-iridium alloy stored at the International Bureau of Weights and Measures in France. One kilogram can also be written as kg or 1000 g.

History of the Kilogram

The kilogram was originally defined in 1795 during the French Revolution as the mass of one litre of water at 4 °C, which was determined to be 18841 grains. In 1799, the Kilogramme des Archives, a platinum artifact, replaced it as the standard of weight. In 1889, the IPK became the new standard of the unit of weight for the metric system and remained so for 130 years, until the current definition was adopted in 2019.

The kilogram, as well as other metric units of weight, such as the gram and the tonne, were introduced in the 19th century as part of the decimal system of measurement that aimed to simplify and unify the units used in science and commerce. The kilogram was officially adopted by the International System of Units (SI) in 1960 as one of the seven base units.

How to Convert Kilograms

To convert kilograms to other units of weight, we need to use conversion factors that relate the kilogram to the desired unit. For example, to convert kilograms to pounds, we need to know that one pound is equal to 0.45359237 kg. Therefore, one kilogram is equal to 2.2046226218 pounds.

Here are some common conversion factors for kilograms:

  • 1 kg = 1000 g
  • 1 kg = 2.2046226218 lb
  • 1 kg = 35.27396195 oz
  • 1 kg = 0.001 t
  • 1 kg = 0.1574730444 st

To convert from other units of weight to kilograms, we need to use the inverse of these conversion factors. For example, to convert pounds to kilograms, we need to divide by 2.2046226218.

Where Kilograms are Used

The kilogram is a unit of weight that is widely used to measure the weight of objects and substances such as food, clothes, animals, metals and chemicals. For example, an adult human body has an average weight of about 62 kg.

The kilogram is also used to measure the weight of some physical quantities such as force, pressure and torque. For example, one newton (N) is equal to one kilogram times one meter per second squared (kg x m/s2).

Example Conversions of Kilograms to Other Units

Here are some examples of how to convert kilograms to other units of weight using the conversion factors given above:

  • 2 kg = 2 x 1000 g = 2000 g
  • 3 kg = 3 x 2.2046226218 lb = 6.6138678654 lb
  • 4 kg = 4 x 35.27396195 oz = 141.0958478 oz
  • 5 kg = 5 x 0.001 t = 0.005 t
  • 6 kg = 6 x 0.1574730444 st = 0.9448382664 st

Conclusion

The kilogram is a unit of weight that measures how much force an object or substance exerts on a scale due to gravity. It is equal to the mass of the IPK, a cylinder of platinum-iridium alloy stored in France. The kilogram is widely used to measure the weight of objects and substances such as food, clothes, animals, metals and chemicals, as well as some physical quantities such as force, pressure and torque. To convert kilograms to other units of weight, we need to use conversion factors that relate the kilogram to the desired unit.

Kilograms also can be marked as kilogrammes in UK.

US Short Tons: A Unit of Weight

US short tons are a unit of weight that are used for measuring large masses, such as coal, iron, and steel. US short tons are also known as net tons or simply tons. The symbol for US short ton is tn or st.

Definition of the US Short Ton

The US short ton is defined as 2000 pounds, which is the common unit of weight in the US customary system of measurements. The US short ton is equal to 20 short hundredweight, each of which is 100 pounds. The US short ton is also equal to 0.893 long tons, which are used in the United Kingdom and some other Commonwealth of Nations countries.

The US short ton is equal to about 907 kilograms or 0.907 tonnes. The US short ton is also equal to about 0.8929 tonnes-force.

How to Convert US Short Tons

US short tons can be converted to other units of weight by using conversion factors or formulas. Here are some examples of how to convert US short tons to other units of weight in the US customary system and the SI system:

  • To convert US short tons to avoirdupois pounds, multiply by 2000. For example, 10 tn = 10 x 2000 = 20000 lb.
  • To convert US short tons to long tons, multiply by 0.8929. For example, 5 tn = 5 x 0.8929 = 4.4645 LT.
  • To convert US short tons to tonnes, multiply by 0.9072. For example, 20 tn = 20 x 0.9072 = 18.144 t.
  • To convert US short tons to kilograms, multiply by 907.1847. For example, 15 tn = 15 x 907.1847 = 13607.7705 kg.
  • To convert US short tons to grams, multiply by 907184.7. For example, 25 tn = 25 x 907184.7 = 22679617.5 g.
  • To convert US short tons to milligrams, multiply by 907184700. For example, 30 tn = 30 x 907184700 = 27215541000 mg.

Where US Short Tons are Used

US short tons are used in different countries and regions for different applications and purposes. Here are some examples of where US short tons are used:

  • In the United States, US short tons are used for measuring weight, especially for coal, iron, steel, and other bulk commodities and goods.
  • In Canada, US short tons are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for coal, iron, steel, and other bulk commodities and goods.
  • In Mexico, US short tons are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for coal, iron, steel, and other bulk commodities and goods.
  • In some other countries that use the metric system, US short tons are sometimes used for measuring weight, especially for international trade and commerce.

History of US Short Tons

US short tons have a relatively recent history that dates back to the late 19th century. Here are some highlights of the history of US short tons:

  • The US short ton was originally based on the weight of a tun or a large cask that could hold about 252 gallons of wine or ale.
  • The US short ton was part of the US customary system of measurements that was derived from the British imperial system of measurements that was used in the United States before its independence.
  • The US short ton was adopted by many industries and sectors in the United States as a standard unit of weight for coal, iron, steel, and other bulk commodities and goods.
  • The US short ton was also referred to as the net ton or simply the ton in some countries and contexts to distinguish it from the long ton used in the United Kingdom and some other Commonwealth of Nations countries and the metric tonne used in most other countries.
