Pounds: A Unit of Weight

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
