How to Convert Kilograms to Pounds
Converting Kilograms to Pounds
Welcome to this video on converting kilograms to pounds.
Converting kilograms to pounds is really very straight forward. For every 1kg you have 2.2lbs.
So, in order to convert kilograms to pounds all we have to do is multiply our kilograms by 2.2lbs/kg. Now, here is something that is important to know. If you were to just multiply your kilograms by 2.2, then your units would still be in kilograms. It is very important to make the distinction between kg x 2.2 and kg x 2/2lbs/kgs. In our second option, kilograms cancel out and leave us with pounds for our units. Which is what we need to happen in order to convert kilograms to pounds. Now, let’s look at some examples.
Convert the following masses to pounds.
47kg, 9.78kg, and 29.521kg
47kg x (2.2lbs/kgs) = 47
kg x (2.2lbs/ kgs)= 103.4lbs
9.78kg x (2.2lbs/kg) = 9.78
kg x (2.2lbs/ kg)= 21.516lbs
29.521kg x (2.2lbs/kg) = 29.521
kg x (2.2lbs/ kg)= 64.9462lbs
If you wanted to convert pounds to kilograms then you just flip your ratio.
Let’s take a look.
Convert the following masses to kilograms.
91lbs, 65lbs, and 73.92lbs
91lbs x (1kg/2.2lbs) = 91
lbs x (1kg/2.2 lbs) = 41.36kg
65lbs x (1kg/2.2lbs) = 65
lbs x (1kg/2.2 lbs) = 29.55kg
73.92lbs x (1kg/2.2lbs) = 73.92
lbs x (1kg/2.2 lbs)= 33.6kg
Converting kilograms, or really any unit of measurement is typically very simple as long as you know the ratio. So, remember, for every 1kg you have 2.2lbs.
