Kilogram to Pounds ( kg to lbs ) Relation

Both Kilogram (kg) and Pound (lb) are units of measurement of weight or mass. A pound(lbs) is an imperial unit of mass or weight. Likewise, after the adoption of the SI system in the year 1959, the unit kilogram has been adopted as the unit of measurement of weight.

Although, when we examine the technicalities behind both the terms, it remarkably becomes more complex and hard to differentiate between the two units. 1 kilogram (kg) is stated to be 2.205 times heavier than 1 pound (represented as lb). Thus, one kilo of mass is approximately equal to 2.206 lbs.
