When you measure something on a weighing machine its shows the weight in Kilograms the SI symbol for this is "kg" whereas kG for capital G refers to kilogauss . Anyways looking with POV of physics when you measure something on a weighing machine it shows its weight . weight is a force . And the weighing machine shows the normal force which in case of every weighing machine is m X g mass times gravitational acceleration g ~ 9.8 often written 10 for simplicity so to measure something's mass you just divide its weight by 10 or to be more precise by 9.8 . Mass is same everywhere in the universe . Its weight that changes
