Kilogram (abbreviations: kg, or kgm): is a SI (metric) system unit of mass (IPK, also known as "Le Grand K" or "Big K") and equivalent to 1/1000 of one gram. Where, at the temperature of melting ice, one gram is the absolute weight of a volume equal to the hundredth part of a metre cube of pure water.

Kilopound (abbreviation: kips): is a unit of force, equivalent to 1000 pounds (lb) which is used in some systems of measurement including English Engineering units and the British Gravitational System. Also, it is a unit of mass used in the imperial, United States customary and other systems of measurement.

How to Convert Kilograms to Kilopounds

Example: How many kilopounds are equivalent to 91.16 kilograms?


As;


1 kilograms = 0.00220462 kilopounds


91.16 kilograms = Y kilopounds


Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;


Y equals 91.16 times 0.00220462 over 1


(i.e.) Y = 91.16 * 0.00220462 / 1 = 0.2009731592 kilopounds


Answer is: 0.2009731592 kilopounds are equivalent to 91.16 kilograms.
