# How to Convert From Pounds to Kilograms

Save

A pound is a common unit of weight in the United States. However, this can cause confusion when people in other countries refer to how much they weigh (their mass) in kilograms. Another area where you see the need to convert kilograms and pounds is when referring to weights that are used for body building.

### Things You'll Need
