Before we go to the practice - this is 40.72 kg how much lbs conversion - we are going to tell you few theoretical information about these two units - kilograms and pounds. So we are starting.

## 40.72 kgs in pounds

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

Sometimes the kilogram could be written as kilogramme. The symbol of the kilogram is kg.

Firstly the kilogram was defined in 1795. The kilogram was described as the mass of one liter of water. This definition was not complicated but hard to use.

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

Nowadays 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 equal 0.001 tonne. It can be also divided to 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.

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

The international avoirdupois pound has no descriptive definition. It is equal 0.45359237 kilograms. One avoirdupois pound is divided to 16 avoirdupois ounces or 7000 grains.

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