What weighs 2,000 lbs

 
 
 
The kilogram is the SI base unit of mass
The unit symbol is kg and the formula symbol is mass m.

On earth, 1 kilogram is mass × acceleration due to gravity G = 1 kilopond of force
and so is 1 kg × 9.80665 m / s2 = 1 kp

The question: "How much or what does a kilo weigh?" is very easy to answer.
The kilopond is out of date and has not been used since 1960.
Colloquially, the mass of a body is inexactly referred to as "weight".
Weight force is the type of force that we are constantly dealing with in everyday life.
A kilopond = 1 kg weighs exactly one kilogram = 1 kg. If you want to know more:
1960 was the Power unit kilopond replaced by the Newton in the SI system (1 kp = 9.80665 N).
One newton corresponds roughly to the weight of a body on our earth
with a mass of 1 / 9.81 kg = 102 grams - i.e. a bar of chocolate. 1 N ≈ 100 grams.
The mass (1 Newton) is location-independent, the weight (100 grams) is location-specific!

The acceleration due to gravity at sea level is around the equator G = 9.780 m / s2, at the 45th parallel G = 9.80665 m / s2 and on
Pol about G = 9.832 m / s2. Ever H = 1 meter height increases G by about 3 x 10-6 m / s2 from as long as H is small compared to the radius of the earth.

Note: The Winchester "Bushel" formerly used in England contained 2150.42 cubic inches = 4 pecks = 35.23907166 88 liters,
what the volume of a cylinder is, with 181/2 inches in inner diameter and 8 inches in depth. A standard bushel,
introduced by the US government consisted of 77.6274 pounds of distilled water, at 39.8 degrees
Fahrenheit and 30 inches of atmospheric pressure, which was equivalent to the Winchester bushel. The
Imperial bushel now used in England is larger than the Winchester bushel and corresponds to
2218.2 cubic inches or 80 pounds of water at 62 degrees Fahrenheit = 0.03636872 m3.

In the USA, a kip is a unit of mass that is 1000 avoirdupois pounds.
