# Objects That Weigh 1 Kilogram?

The metric system uses micrograms, milligrams, grams, kilograms, tonnes, megagram, and megatonnes to weigh, or measure, mass. Kilograms compared to pounds are less than pounds. 1 kilogram is equal to about 2.21 pounds. Micrograms and milligrams are used to measure medicine. Grams are used to measure small amounts of jewelry or food. Kilograms are used to measure body mass, household furniture weight, and large objects. Tonnes are used to measure weights of cars and boats. Megagrams and megatonnes are rarely, if ever used. Objects that weigh 1 kilogram are a bag of rice, a liter of water, and a dictionary.
