## 55.72 kg to lbs

Before we go to the practice - it means 55.72 kg how much lbs conversion - we want to tell you some theoretical information about these two units - kilograms and pounds. So let’s move on.

## 55.72 kgs in pounds

We are going to begin with the kilogram. The kilogram is a unit of mass. It is a base unit in a metric system, that is International System of Units (in short 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 described as the mass of one liter of water. This definition was simply but totally impractical to use.

Then, in 1889 the kilogram was described using the International Prototype of the Kilogram (in short 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.

The new 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 0.001 tonne. It can be also divided into 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.

You learned a little bit 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 are we talking about? For example, 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 used also in other systems. The symbol of this unit is lb or “.

The international avoirdupois pound has no descriptive definition. It is defined as 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.”
