Atomic Mass Unit (abbreviations: amu, or u): also known as dalton (symbol: Da), is a standard unit of mass that used on an atomic or molecular scale (atomic mass). One unified atomic mass unit is about the mass of one nucleon (either a single proton or neutron) and equivalent to 1 g/mol.

Kilopound (abbreviation: kips): is a unit of force, equivalent to 1000 pounds (lb) which is used in some systems of measurement including English Engineering units and the British Gravitational System. Also, it is a unit of mass used in the imperial, United States customary and other systems of measurement.

## How to Convert Atomic Mass Units to Kilopounds

### Example: How many kilopounds are equivalent to 80.15 atomic mass units?

As;

1 atomic mass units = 3.6597330342796E-30 kilopounds

80.15 atomic mass units = Y kilopounds

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 80.15 times 3.6597330342796E-30 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 80.15 * 3.6597330342796E-30 / 1 = 2.9332760269751E-28 kilopounds

Answer is: 2.9332760269751E-28 kilopounds are equivalent to 80.15 atomic mass units.
