Hey guys! Welcome to this video on converting kilograms
to pounds. Converting kilograms to pounds is really very
straight forward. For every 1kg you have 2.2lbs. So, in order to convert kilograms to pounds all we have to do is multiply our kilograms by 2.2lbs/kg. Now, here is something that is important to
know. If you were to just multiply your kilograms
by 2.2, then your units would still be in kilograms. It is very important to make the distinction
between kgx2.2 and kgx2/2lbs/kgs. In our second option, kilograms cancel out
and leave us with pounds for our units. Which is what we need to happen in order to
convert kilograms to pounds. Now, let’s look at some examples. Convert the following masses to pounds. 47kg, 9.78kg, and 29.521kg 47kg x (2.2lbs/kgs)=47kg x (2.2lbs/kgs)=
103.4lbs 9.78kg x (2.2lbs/kg)=9.78kg x (2.2lbs/kg)=
21.516lbs 29.521kg x (2.2lbs/kg)=29.521kg x (2.2lbs/kg)=
64.9462lbs If you wanted to convert pounds to kilograms
then you just flip your ratio. Let’s take a look. Convert the following masses to kilograms. 91lbs, 65lbs, and 73.92lbs 91lbs x (1kg/2.2lbs)=91lbs x (1kg/2.2lbs)
=41.36kg 65lbs x (1kg/2.2lbs)=65lbs x (1kg/2.2lbs)
=29.55kg 73.92lbs x (1kg/2.2lbs)=73.92lbs x (1kg/2.2lbs)=
