Usage notes
sense|proscribed|unit of weight The use of the kilogram as a unit of weight is somewhat imprecise, as the weight of a one-kilogram mass will depend on its location. It is therefore frequently proscribed, but is nonetheless in wide use. (The same imprecision and proscription also occur with many other words pertaining to weight and mass, such as the verb term|weigh.)
