## 6.42 kg to lbs

Before we move on to the more practical part - this is 6.42 kg how much lbs calculation - we will tell you a little bit of theoretical information about these two units - kilograms and pounds. So we are starting.

## 6.42 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, that is International System of Units (in abbreviated form SI).

From time to time the kilogram can be written as kilogramme. The symbol of this unit is kg.

The kilogram was defined first time in 1795. The kilogram was defined as the mass of one liter of water. This definition was not complicated but impractical to use.

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

The new 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 equal 0.001 tonne. It is also divided into 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.

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

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

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