Before we move on to the more practical part - this is 78.47 kg how much lbs conversion - we want to tell you some theoretical information about these two units - kilograms and pounds. So let’s start.

## 78.47 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, known also as International System of Units (in short form SI).

At times the kilogram is written as kilogramme. The symbol of the kilogram is kg.

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

Then, in 1889 the kilogram was defined using the International Prototype of the Kilogram (in abbreviated form IPK). The IPK was made of 90% platinum and 10 % iridium. The IPK was used until 2019, when it was substituted by another 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 is also divided into 100 decagrams and 1000 grams.

You learned something about kilogram, so now let’s move on to the pound. The pound is also a unit of mass. It is needed to point out that there are more than one kind of pound.

The pound is used in the Imperial and United States customary systems of measurements. Of course, 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 just equal 0.45359237 kilograms. One avoirdupois pound is divided to 16 avoirdupois ounces and 7000 grains.

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