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.

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.


How to Convert Kilopounds to Kilograms

Example: How many kilograms are equivalent to 68.78 kilopounds?


As;

1 kilopounds = 453.59290943564 kilograms

68.78 kilopounds = Y kilograms

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

Y equals 68.78 times 453.59290943564 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 68.78 * 453.59290943564 / 1 = 31198.120310983 kilograms

Answer is: 31198.120310983 kilograms are equivalent to 68.78 kilopounds.
