Kilograms vs. Pounds

Kilograms and pounds are units of weight used in different parts of the world. The kilogram, abbreviated as KG, is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI) and is widely used globally. One kilogram is defined as the mass of one liter of water at its maximum density.

On the other hand, the pound, abbreviated as LBS (from the Roman libra), is commonly used in the United States and other countries still on the imperial system. Historically, the value of a pound varied from region to region, but it has since been standardized.

This difference in measurement systems led to the necessity for reliable converters like ours, bridging the gap between these two commonly used units.
