Note that weight actually refers to force exerted due to the acceleration of gravity and the mass of an object. It is commonplace to see the terms weight and mass used interchangeably, though.

The SI base unit of mass is the kilogram. The original metric system specified the gram as the base mass unit.

The SI base unit of force, which technically would be the correct unit of weight is the Newton (kg*m/s2). The dyne is another 'metric' unit of force (g*cm/s2).
