Guys !!! Do you know that the definition of kilogram is changed after 130 years !!!

The kilogram or kilogramme (symbol: kg) is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI). Until 20 May 2019, it remains defined by a platinum alloy cylinder, the International Prototype Kilogram (informally Le Grand K or IPK), manufactured in 1889, and carefully stored in Saint-Cloud, a suburb of Paris. After 20 May, it will be defined in terms of fundamental physical constants. The new definition is based on invariant constants of nature, in particular the Planck constant which will change to being defined rather than measured, thereby fixing the value of the kilogram in terms of the second and the metre, and eliminating the need for the IPK. The new definition was approved by the General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM) on 16 November 2018. The Planck constant relates a light particle’s energy, and hence mass, to its frequency. The new definition only became possible when instruments were devised to measure the Planck constant with sufficient accuracy based on the IPK definition of the kilogram.

Kibble balance at National institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Devices like this can weigh objects using the new definition of the kilogram in terms of the Planck constant.

Yes, read about it. Mole, ampere, kelvin are also being redefined

In that question; how is the answer 5? though your solution says 0.46? Shall I file a report asking the staff to change the answer?

Syed Hamza Khalid - 1 week, 5 days ago

Your question has been resolved by @Brilliant Mathematics

@Syed Hamza Khalid Thanks सय्यद. Actually I wasn't able to change the answer after publishing.

Guys ! Did you notice that a new icon is added to the tool bar when we write a question called "glossary". I pressed it but nothing happened. Does anybody know for what is it meant ?

Hey @Ram Mohith it is an accident that that is being shown to regular members – it is a staff-only feature. You can see it in action in some courses like this one.

@EKENE FRANKLIN Depends on how much you already know..............If you have to start from scratch, I would suggest reading from Resnick and Halliday.......!!! But, if you are well versed with the topic, then you can also check out this book by Griffiths............
