Another unit is kgf, which is a force unit used mostly in Europe, and is defined as kp (kilopond). Explain the difference between kilopond (kp = kgf) and kilopound (103 lbf) from force units and write the unity conversion factor between them. The density of water at 4°C is = 1000 kg/m3. Express this density value in units of kp ⋅ m−4 ⋅ s2.
