## 3 kg to lbs

Before we move on to the practice - this is 3 kg how much lbs calculation - we want to tell you few theoretical information about these two units - kilograms and pounds. So let’s move on.

## 3 kgs in pounds

We will start with the kilogram. The kilogram is a unit of mass. It is a base unit in a metric system, formally known as International System of Units (in short form SI).

From time to time the kilogram could be written as kilogramme. The symbol of the kilogram is kg.

Firstly, the definition of a kilogram was formulated in 1795. The kilogram was described as the mass of one liter of water. This definition was not complicated but totally impractical to use.

Then, in 1889 the kilogram was described by the International Prototype of the Kilogram (in abbreviated form IPK). The IPK was made of 90% platinum and 10 % iridium. The IPK was in use until 2019, when it was replaced by another definition.

Today the definition of the kilogram is based on physical constants, especially Planck constant. The official definition is: “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 can be also divided into 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.

You learned some information about kilogram, so now we can move on to the pound. The pound is also a unit of mass. We want to point out that there are not only one kind of pound. What does it mean? For example, there are also pound-force. In this article we are going to to focus only on pound-mass.

The pound is used in the Imperial and United States customary systems of measurements. Naturally, this unit is used also in other systems. The symbol of this unit is lb or “.

There is no descriptive definition of the international avoirdupois pound. It is equal 0.45359237 kilograms. One avoirdupois pound is divided into 16 avoirdupois ounces and 7000 grains.

The avoirdupois pound was implemented in the Weights and Measures Act 1963. The definition of this unit was written 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.”

### 3 kg in lbs

Theoretical section is already behind us. In next part we are going to tell you how much is 3 kg to lbs. Now you learned that 3 kg = x lbs. So it is high time to get the answer. Just see:
