Do you want to know how much is 1 kg equal to lbs and how to convert 1 kg to lbs? Here it is. This whole article is dedicated to kilogram to pound conversion - both theoretical and practical. It is also needed/We also want to underline that whole this article is devoted to one number of kilograms - exactly one kilogram. So if you want to know more about 1 kg to pound conversion - keep reading.

Before we move on to the practice - it means 1 kg how much lbs calculation - we want to tell you few theoretical information about these two units - kilograms and pounds. So we are starting.

1 kgs in pounds

We are going to begin 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 short form SI).

At times the kilogram is written as kilogramme. The symbol of the kilogram is kg.

First definition of a kilogram was formulated in 1795. The kilogram was defined as the mass of one liter of water. First definition was not complicated but hard to use.

Later, in 1889 the kilogram was defined using the International Prototype of the Kilogram (in abbreviated form IPK). The IPK was prepared of 90% platinum and 10 % iridium. The IPK was in use until 2019, when it was substituted by a new definition.

Nowadays the definition of the kilogram is build 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 equal 0.001 tonne. It could be also divided to 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.

1 kilogram to pounds

You learned some information about kilogram, so now let's go to the pound. The pound is also a unit of mass. We want to emphasize that there are more than one kind of pound. What does it mean? For instance, there are also pound-force. In this article we are going to to concentrate only on pound-mass.

The pound is used in the British and United States customary systems of measurements. Naturally, this unit is in use also in another systems. The symbol of this unit 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 and 7000 grains.

The avoirdupois pound was enforced 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.”
