 Kilogram - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A kilogram is approximately equivalent to 2.205 avoirdupois pounds in the Imperial system and the customary system of weights and measures used in the United States.
The kilogram was originally defined as the mass of one litre of pure water at standard atmospheric pressure and at the temperature at which water has its maximum density (3.98 degrees Celsius).
Planck's constant: The Watt balance uses the current balance that was formerly used to define the ampere to relate the kilogram to a value for Planck's constant, based on the definitions of the volt and the ohm.

Kilogram per cubic metre is the SI measure of density and is represented as kg/m³, where kg stands for kilogram and m³ stands for cubic metre.
To convert from g/cm³ to kg/m³, divide by 1,000 for grams to kilograms conversion and multiply by 100³ for the cm³ to m³ conversion, hence 1 g/cm³ equals 1000 kg/m³.

At that time, the name "grave" had become politically incorrect, since it is an alternative word for the title "count" (cognate with the British "markgrave" and the German "Graf"), and nobility titles were not considered compatible with the notion of égalité.
