Where, at the temperature of melting ice, one gram is the absolute weight of a volume equal to the hundredth part of a metre cube of pure water.


How to Convert Pounds to Kilograms

Example: How many kilograms are equivalent to 13.1 pounds?


As;

1 pounds = 0.4536 kilograms

13.1 pounds = Y kilograms

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

Y equals 13.1 times 0.4536 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 13.1 * 0.4536 / 1 = 5.94216 kilograms

Answer is: 5.94216 kilograms are equivalent to 13.1 pounds.
