Kilograms is a very important unit of measurement, because it is the SI unit of mass. Therefore, it is the most commonly used measurement of mass. It is used in practically every equation that has to do with mass, such as weight (W= mg), momentum (p=mv), centripetal force (F=mv2/r), and many, many other formulas. Being that kilogram is used in so many equations as the SI unit of mass, it is necessary to convert from other units to kilograms to calculate the equation. Since electronics encompasses so many different weight-bearing devices such as electronic scales, accelerometers, etc, working with kilograms is essential for making calculations.
