The kilogram or kilogramme (old BE), or kilo, abbreviated kg, is a unit of weight. It is equal to 1000 g or 2 15 (2.2) lbs. One liter of pure water weighs one kilogram. As many recipes have been approximately converted from one system to another, a similarly approximate conversion back may yield the original recipe.

NoteEdit

  • Although sometimes disregarded, especially by Anglophones, the rules of the Société Internationale (SI), state that metric abbreviations, except M for Mega or Million to distinguish from m for mili or thousandth, should never be capitalized. It should always be written "kg", never "Kg".
