How to Convert Pounds (lb) to Kilograms (kg) – Math Made Easy!

Manually convert lb to kg - Photo by Andreas Praefcke
Although many people in the United States think of weight in terms of pounds, many healthcare facilities record weight in kilograms. Although using an online convertor is quick and easy, it is helpful to know how to do the conversion so that you can compute a weight without the aid of the Internet. For simplicity's sake, I have rounded the conversion number to the nearest 100th. If you need a more exact number, use 0.45359237 instead of 0.45.

Here is the conversion for lb to kg: 1 lb = 0.45 kg

In order to obtain kilograms if you have a weight in pounds, simply multiply the number by 0.45.

Below are a few examples:

How to Convert Kilograms (kg) to Pounds (lb) – Math Made Easy

Although many online calculators are available for converting weight, it is quite simple to do the conversions using a simple math formula. For the sake of simplicity, I have rounded to the nearest tenth on the conversion and chart that will result in a rounded number for pounds that is typically within one pound of the true number. If you need a result that is more exact, use 2.20462 for the conversion.

Here is the simple and quick conversion for kg to lb: 1 kg = 2.2 lb

If you have a weight in kilograms, simply multiply by 2.2 to get the weight in pounds.
