## What are Troy Pounds?

Troy pounds are a unit of measurement commonly used in the precious metals industry, particularly for weighing gold, silver, and other valuable metals.

One troy pound is equivalent to 12 troy ounces, which is slightly heavier than the avoirdupois pound commonly used in everyday measurements. The troy pound is often denoted by the symbol "lb t" to distinguish it from the avoirdupois pound.

## What is a kilogram?

A kilogram is metric unit of weight subdivided into 1,000 grams. The base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI) is a kilogram and not, as is quite often mistaken, the gram.

One liter of water weighs 1kg.
