## What Is a Kilogram?

One kilogram is equal to 1,000 grams, 2.204623 pounds, or 1/1,000 of a metric ton.

The formal definition of the kilogram changed in 2019. One kilogram was previously equal to the mass of the platinum-iridium bar, known as the International Prototype of the Kilogram, which was stored in SÃ¨vres, France.

The 2019 SI brochure now defines the kilogram using the Planck constant, and it is defined using the meter and second.[1] It is equal to the mass of 1,000 cubic centimeters, or milliliters, of water.

The kilogram, or kilogramme, is the SI base unit for weight and is also a multiple of the gram. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for thousands, or 103. Kilograms can be abbreviated as kg; for example, 1 kilogram can be written as 1 kg.

## What Is a Ton?

One ton, also known as a short ton or a US ton, is equal to 2,000 pounds and is mostly used in the US as a unit of weight.[2] One ton is equal to 907.18474 kilograms.

The ton is a US customary unit of weight. A ton is sometimes also referred to as a short ton. Tons can be abbreviated as t; for example, 1 ton can be written as 1 t.

The short ton should not be confused with the long ton, which is used mostly in the United Kingdom, or the metric ton which is used in most other countries.
