It is also known as kilogram/meter, kilogram/metre, kilograms per meter, kilogram per metre, kilograms per metre. This unit is commonly used in the SI unit system. Kilogram Per Meter (kg/m) has a dimension of ML-1 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 Linear mass density include Denier (den, denier), Ounce (mass) Per Foot (oz/ft), Ounce (mass) Per Inch (oz/in), Pound (mass) Per Foot (lbm/ft), Pound (mass) Per Inch (lbm/in), and Tex (tex).
