This paper presents a way to a new definition of a mass unit, kilogram, through two very complex experiments which are performed in the leading world metrology institutes. These experiments are Avogadro project and Watt’s scales, which are aimed to connecting kilograms with natural constant, Planck’s constant. Also, the paper mentioned natural constant, published by CODATA.
