Kilogram Force-Meter (kgf-m) is a unit in the category of Moment, Torque. It is also known as kilogram force meter, kg-m, m-kgf. This unit is commonly used in the MKpS unit system. Kilogram Force-Meter (kgf-m) has a dimension of ML2T-2 where M is mass, L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit N-m by multiplying its value by a factor of 9.80665.

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 Moment, Torque include Dyne-Centimeter (dyn-cm), Gram Force-Centimeter (gf-cm), Newton-Centimeter (N-cm), Newton-Meter (N-m), Ounce Force-Inch (ozf-in), Pound Force-Foot (lbf-ft), Pound Force-Inch (lbf-in), and Poundal-Foot (pdl-ft).
