Convert Kilopound to Atomic Mass Unit (kips to amu)

In next fields, kindly type your value in the text box under title [ From: ] to convert from kilopound to atomic mass unit (kips to amu). As you type your value, the answer will be automatically calculated and displayed in the text box under title [ To: ].


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.

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.

How to Convert Kilopounds to Atomic Mass Units

Example: How many atomic mass units are equivalent to 42.85 kilopounds?


1 kilopounds = 2.7324397452856E+29 atomic mass units

42.85 kilopounds = Y atomic mass units

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

Y equals 42.85 times 2.7324397452856E+29 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 42.85 * 2.7324397452856E+29 / 1 = 1.1708504308549E+31 atomic mass units

Answer is: 1.1708504308549E+31 atomic mass units are equivalent to 42.85 kilopounds.
