Before we get to the more practical part - it means 3.99 kg how much lbs conversion - we will tell you few theoretical information about these two units - kilograms and pounds. So let’s start.

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

Sometimes the kilogram is 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 simply but totally impractical to use.

Later, in 1889 the kilogram was described by the International Prototype of the Kilogram (in short form IPK). The International Prototype of the Kilogram was made of 90% platinum and 10 % iridium. The IPK was used until 2019, when it was switched by a new 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 0.001 tonne. It could be also divided to 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.

There is no descriptive definition of the international avoirdupois pound. It is exactly 0.45359237 kilograms. One avoirdupois pound can be divided into 16 avoirdupois ounces or 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.”
