Mass is a fundamental physical property that quantifies the amount of matter an object possesses. It is an intrinsic characteristic of an object and remains constant regardless of its location. The kilogram (kg) serves as the standard unit of mass, commonly used to express the mass of different objects. For example, the mass of a textbook might be measured as 1.5 kilograms, while the mass of a car could be several thousand kilograms.
