The base unit of mass in the metric system?

The base unit of mass is the kilogram. When the metric system was developing, the unit of mass was initially the gram. This means that the kilogram is the only base unit to have a prefix, double prefixes are not allowed, so there is no kilokilogram. the prefixes are used as if the gram was the base unit, but the gram is defined as 1/1000 of the international prototype kilogram. The international prototype kilogram is the standard kilogram, in the near future the kilogram will be redefined in terms of the Planck constant to remove variation in the standard kilogram caused by the aging of the international prototype.

1000 grams is ONE what?

1,000 grams is one kilogram in the International System of Units (SI). The kilo prefix means one thousand, so a thousand grams is a kilogram. Originally defined as the mass of a cubic decimeter (liter) of water, the kilogram is today standadized as the mass of a platinum-iridium international prototype kept at the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (Bureau International des Poids et Mesure, near Paris, France). A one-kilogram mass has an Earth weight of about 2.2 pounds.

How was the unit gram derived?

Originally (in 1795), the gram was defined as the mass of one cubic centimeter of pure water at the temperature of melting ice.Today, the gram is defined as one thousandth of a kilogram. The kilogram is defined as the mass of one cubic decimeter (one liter) of pure water at 4 °C (the temperature of maximum density for water). However, the standard for the kilogram is a specific artifact. The International Prototype Kilogram (the IPK) is one small cylinder of platinum-iridium alloy which was fabricated in 1879. The IPK is kept in a climate-controlled vault at the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM), outside Paris.
