## Definition of the Pound

A pound is a unit of weight that measures how much force an object or substance exerts on a scale due to gravity. It is equal to 0.45359237 kilograms, or 16 ounces, or 7000 grains. One pound can also be written as lb or lbs.

## History of the Pound

The pound was originally defined in ancient Rome as the mass of a bronze bar called a libra, which was divided into 12 ounces. The libra was later adopted by various regions and countries in Europe, such as England, France and Germany, with different values and subdivisions.

The pound as we know it today is based on the avoirdupois system, which was developed in the 13th century in France and England. The avoirdupois pound was standardized in 1959 by an international agreement among the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa as exactly 0.45359237 kilograms.

The pound, as well as other units of weight, such as the ounce and the ton, were introduced in the 19th century as part of the imperial system of measurement that aimed to unify the units used in the British Empire. The pound was officially adopted by the International System of Units (SI) in 1960 as one of the seven base units.

## How to Convert Pounds

To convert pounds to other units of weight, we need to use conversion factors that relate the pound to the desired unit. For example, to convert pounds to kilograms, we need to know that one kilogram is equal to 2.2046226218 pounds. Therefore, one pound is equal to 0.45359237 kilograms.

Here are some common conversion factors for pounds:

• 1 lb = 0.45359237 kg
• 1 lb = 16 oz
• 1 lb = 7000 gr
• 1 lb = 0.0005 t
• 1 lb = 0.0714285714 st

To convert from other units of weight to pounds, we need to use the inverse of these conversion factors. For example, to convert kilograms to pounds, we need to multiply by 2.2046226218.

## Where Pounds are Used

The pound is a unit of weight that is widely used in the United States and some other countries that have historical ties with Britain, such as Canada and Australia. It is commonly used to measure the weight of people, animals, food, clothes and other everyday items. For example, an average adult male in the United States has a weight of about 198 lbs.

The pound is also used to measure some physical quantities such as force, pressure and torque. For example, one pound-force (lbf) is equal to one pound times the standard acceleration due to gravity (32.174 ft/s2).

## Example Conversions of Pounds to Other Units

Here are some examples of how to convert pounds to other units of weight using the conversion factors given above:

• 2 lb = 2 x 0.45359237 kg = 0.90718474 kg
• 3 lb = 3 x 16 oz = 48 oz
• 4 lb = 4 x 7000 gr = 28000 gr
• 5 lb = 5 x 0.0005 t = 0.0025 t
• 6 lb = 6 x 0.0714285714 st = 0.4285714284 st

## Conclusion

The pound is a unit of weight that measures how much force an object or substance exerts on a scale due to gravity. It is equal to 0.45359237 kilograms, or 16 ounces, or 7000 grains. The pound is widely used in the United States and some other countries that have historical ties with Britain, such as Canada and Australia, as well as some physical quantities such as force, pressure and torque. To convert pounds to other units of weight, we need to use conversion factors that relate the pound to the desired unit.

## Definition of the Cubic Centimeter

A cubic centimeter (symbol cm3 or cc) is a commonly used unit of volume that corresponds to the volume of a cube with sides of 1 centimeter (0.01 meter) in length. It is also equivalent to 1 milliliter, which is a unit of volume in the metric system.

One cubic centimeter is equal to 0.000001 cubic meters, 0.06102374 cubic inches, or 0.000264172 gallons.

## History of the Cubic Centimeter

The cubic centimeter is derived from the centimeter, which is a unit of length that was introduced in France in 1795 as part of the metric system. The centimeter was defined as one hundredth of a meter, which is the base unit of length in the metric system. The meter was originally defined as one ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole along a meridian, but later redefined based on various physical standards, such as a platinum-iridium bar and a wavelength of light. The current definition of the meter, adopted in 1983, is based on the speed of light in vacuum.

The cubic centimeter was first used as a unit of volume for measuring liquids and gases, such as water, milk, juice, oil, air, and oxygen. The cubic centimeter was also used for measuring some solids, such as sugar, salt, and flour. The cubic centimeter was adopted as a standard unit of measure in many countries that use the metric system, such as France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Sweden.

## How to Convert Cubic Centimeters

To convert cubic centimeters to other units of volume, you need to multiply or divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:

• To convert cubic centimeters to cubic meters, multiply by 0.000001.
• Example: 2 cm3 × 0.000001 = 0.000002 m3
• To convert cubic centimeters to cubic inches, multiply by 0.06102374.
• Example: 2 cm3 × 0.06102374 = 0.12204748 in3
• To convert cubic centimeters to milliliters or liters, multiply by 1 or divide by 1000 respectively.
• Example: 2 cm3 × 1 = 2 mL or 2 cm3 ÷ 1000 = 0.002 L
• To convert cubic centimeters to gallons (US liquid), multiply by 0.000264172.
• Example: 2 cm3 × 0.000264172 = 0.000528344 gal
• To convert cubic centimeters to bushels (US), multiply by 0.00002837825.
