# What is bigger, a pound or a kilogram?

**A kilogram is more than twice as heavy as a pound.** A kilogram consists of 1,000 grams, while the mass of 1 pound is only 453.6 grams, or less than half a kilogram.

The conversion of a mass in kilograms into pounds also shows that 1 kilogram is a larger unit than 1 pound, as 1 kilogram converts to 2.2 pounds. The kilogram is the basic unit of mass in the metric system, while the pound is the basic weight or force unit in the customary English system of measurement.

A ton is a unit of mass equivalent to 2,000 pounds. A metric ton consists of 1,000 kilograms and has a weight of 2,204.6 pounds.
