How gram is defined?

Gram, also gramme, symbol “g”, is a unit of mass or weight in the metric system. Originally one gram was defined as equal to the mass of one cubic centimeter of pure water at 4 °C (39.2 °F) or a milliliter of pure water. Gram used to be a fundamental unit of mass together with centimeters and seconds. In 1960, kilogram officially replaced gram as a base unit, and gram is now defined as one thousandth (1/1000 of a kilogram). Gram, however, is still widely used to indicate the weight of ingredients in food or cooking recipes. It is even found on labels of products from the USA, where the imperial system is adopted. To make it easier to imagine how heavy a gram is, you can think of the weight of a paperclip.

Where does the pound come from?

Pound, or avoirdupois pound (standard symbols: lb), is a unit of mass or weight in the UK imperial systems or the US customary systems of measurement. One pound equals 0.45359237 kilograms as legally defined in the international avoirdupois system or 16 avoirdupois ounces. The term “pound” is derived from the Roman expression libra pondo, in which pondo means weight and libra (scale or balance) is a mass unit used in ancient Rome. That’s why the pound is abbreviated as lb. Nowadays, pound as a unit of mass is commonly used in the United States and countries of the Commonwealth of Nations.
