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

How to Manually Convert kg to lb - Photo by orchid
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.

Here are a few examples:
