A unit of mass in an absolute system of units devised by Max Planck, about 2.176 51 × 10⁻⁵ gram¹. Symbol, mP. Algebraically, it is

the square root of a fraction. h-bar c is the numerator. G is the denominator.

where c = the speed of light, G = Newtonian gravitational constant, and ħ = the reduced Planck's constant.
