## How to Convert Pounds to Atomic Mass Units

### Example: How many atomic mass units are equivalent to 83.91 pounds?

As;

1 pounds = 2.732E+26 atomic mass units

83.91 pounds = Y atomic mass units

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

Y equals 83.91 times 2.732E+26 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 83.91 * 2.732E+26 / 1 = 2.2924212E+28 atomic mass units

Answer is: 2.2924212E+28 atomic mass units are equivalent to 83.91 pounds.
