Scientists adopt new kilogram definition

Recommended Posts

Awesome! Just when I had the metric system figured out they change it!



How we measure the world underwent a quantum leap on Monday as scientists adopted new hyper-accurate definitions for units of weight, electricity and temperature derived from the universal laws of Nature.

The change, on the occasion of World Metrology Day, sees one of science's most influential objects -- a metal cylinder used to define what a kilogram is -- retired in favour of an infinitely more precise measurement taken from a quantum ratio.

Easier to just go with 2.2 pounds isn't it?
