## 0.72 kg to lbs

Before we get to the practice - it means 0.72 kg how much lbs calculation - we will tell you some theoretical information about these two units - kilograms and pounds. So let’s move on.

## 0.72 kgs in pounds

We will start with the kilogram. The kilogram is a unit of mass. It is a basic unit in a metric system, that is International System of Units (in abbreviated form SI).

At times the kilogram could be written as kilogramme. The symbol of this unit is kg.

The kilogram was defined first time in 1795. The kilogram was defined as the mass of one liter of water. First definition was simply but impractical to use.

Then, in 1889 the kilogram was defined by the International Prototype of the Kilogram (in short form IPK). The International Prototype of the Kilogram was prepared of 90% platinum and 10 % iridium. The International Prototype of the Kilogram was used until 2019, when it was replaced by another definition.

Nowadays the definition of the kilogram is based on physical constants, especially Planck constant. Here is the official definition: “The kilogram, symbol kg, is the SI unit of mass. It is defined by taking the fixed numerical value of the Planck constant h to be 6.62607015×10−34 when expressed in the unit J⋅s, which is equal to kg⋅m2⋅s−1, where the metre and the second are defined in terms of c and ΔνCs.”

One kilogram is exactly 0.001 tonne. It could be also divided into 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.

You learned a little bit about kilogram, so now we can move on to the pound. The pound is also a unit of mass. We want to highlight that there are not only one kind of pound. What does it mean? For instance, there are also pound-force. In this article we are going to to centre only on pound-mass.

The pound is in use in the Imperial and United States customary systems of measurements. Of course, this unit is used also in another systems. The symbol of the pound is lb or “.

There is no descriptive definition of the international avoirdupois pound. It is defined as exactly 0.45359237 kilograms. One avoirdupois pound can be divided to 16 avoirdupois ounces or 7000 grains.

The avoirdupois pound was implemented in the Weights and Measures Act 1963. The definition of the pound was given in first section of this act: “The yard or the metre shall be the unit of measurement of length and the pound or the kilogram shall be the unit of measurement of mass by reference to which any measurement involving a measurement of length or mass shall be made in the United Kingdom; and- (a) the yard shall be 0.9144 metre exactly; (b) the pound shall be 0.45359237 kilogram exactly.”
