Before we move on to the more practical part - this is 78.78 kg how much lbs conversion - we are going to tell you some theoretical information about these two units - kilograms and pounds. So we are starting.

## 78.78 kgs in pounds

We will begin with the kilogram. The kilogram is a unit of mass. It is a base unit in a metric system, formally known as International System of Units (in short form SI).

Sometimes the kilogram is written as kilogramme. The symbol of this unit is kg.

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

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

You know a little bit about kilogram, so now we can 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 does it mean? For example, there are also pound-force. In this article we are going to to centre only on pound-mass.

The pound is in use in the Imperial and United States customary systems of measurements. To be honest, this unit is used 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 could 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 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.”
