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.

Pound (abbreviations: lb, or lbs, or ps): is a unit of force 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 Pounds

### Example: How many pounds are equivalent to 71.06 atomic mass units?

As;

1 atomic mass units = 3.66E-27 pounds

71.06 atomic mass units = Y pounds

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

Y equals 71.06 times 3.66E-27 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 71.06 * 3.66E-27 / 1 = 2.600796E-25 pounds

Answer is: 2.600796E-25 pounds are equivalent to 71.06 atomic mass units.
