Kilogram-Square Meter (kg-m2) is a unit in the category of Mass moment of inertia. It is also known as kilogram square meter, kilogram-square metre, kilogram square metre. This unit is commonly used in the SI unit system. Kilogram-Square Meter (kg-m2) has a dimension of ML2 where M is mass, and L is length. This unit is the standard SI unit in this category.

Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).

Other units in the category of Mass moment of inertia include Gram-Square Centimeter (g-cm2), Pound Mass-Square Foot (lbm-ft2), Pound Mass-Square Inch (lbm-in2), Slug-Square Foot (slug-ft2), and Slug-Square Inch (slug-in2).
