Kilogram Force (kgf, kgp) is a unit in the category of Force. This unit is commonly used in the MKpS unit system. Kilogram Force (kgf, kgp) has a dimension of MLT-2 where M is mass, L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit N 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 Force include A.u. of Force (a.u.), Crinal (crinal), Dyne (dyn), Gram Force (gf), Joule Per Centimeter (J/cm), Kilogram Meter Per Square Second (kg-m/s2), Kilopound Force (kip Force) (kipf), Newton (N), Ounce Force (av.) (ozf (av.)), Pound Force (lbf (av.), lbf), Pound Force Foot Per Inch (lbf-ft/in), Poundal (pdl), Slug Foot Per Square Second (slug-ft/s2), Slug Force, Square Foot Inch of Mercury (0°C) (ft2-inHg (0 °C)), Square Foot Inch of Mercury (15.56°C) (ft2-inHg (15.56 °C)), Ton Force (long), Ton Force (metric), and Ton Force (short).
