Units of Mass

The SI unit of mass is the kilogramme (kg); the tonne (metric ton), equal to 1 000 kilogrammes, is widely used as the smallest unit in energy statistics. For most countries, the national commodity balances will use the kilotonne (1 000 tonnes) as the unit for presentation of commodities expressed in mass terms.
