Weight converter formula (lbs, kg)

Pound in kilo

Pound (lbs) / 2.2046 = Result in Kilo (kg)

Kilo to pound

Kilo (kg) x 2.2046 = Result Pound (lbs)

Weight Conversion Example

100 pounds (lbs) / 2.2046 = 45,36 kilos (kg)

100 kilos (kg) * 2.2046 = 220,46 pounds (lbs)

The pound

This unit of mass measurement is converted into kilograms according to the Imperial pound (453,59237g). Note that some countries converted the pound in a different way, such as:

Country Conversion into gram (s) (g = 0.001kg)
Germany, Austria, Denmark, Switzerland 500g (0.5kg)
Russia (the Russian pound obsolete) 425,076g (0.425076kg)
Norway 498,1g (0.4981kg)

This weight unit was called metric pound which in the past was in the range of 0.380kg to 0.552kg but has a modern value of 500 grams.

However, the pound or imperial pound (adopted in 1878 in the United Kingdom) as well as the metric pound as we know it today are closer to the Paris pound (marc weight) or 0.4895kg than the one used by the Romans.

The Roman pound, equivalent to 324g, is largely different in terms of imperial comparison compared to the Roman unit (in ancient Greece), the mina, which was equivalent to 0.432kg.

This last Roman unit was used to define the abbreviation we know today either lb or lbs (for libra in Latin).
