The term body weight is used colloquially and in the biological and medical sciences to refer to a person’s mass or weight. Body weight is measured in kilograms, a measure of mass, throughout the world, although in some countries such as the United States and Canada it is measured in pounds, or as in the United Kingdom, stones and pounds. Most hospitals, even in the United States, now use kilograms for calculations, but use kilograms and pounds together for other purposes.
