One kilogram is roughly equivalent to 2.2 pounds, so multiplying 62 by 2.2 is 136.4. The result will slightly vary depending on the number of decimal places in the pound multiplier. For example, a kilogram may also be multiplied to 2.204622, which is its pound equivalent up to the sixth decimal resulting in 136.6866 rounded off to the fourth decimal.
There are a number of free online weight converters that can readily convert weight and measurements between metric, imperial, and United States standards of measurements. The results from the converters will also vary depending on the number of decimals used in the variables for calculation.
The kilogram, along with the meter, is one of the base units of the metric system. A kilogram used to mean to be the equivalent weight of a liter of water at the melting point of ice. Other base units of the metric system include the ampere to measure units of electrical current, the Celsius temperature scale, the mole and the candela.
The metric system was proposed in 1799 by France. It has since been referred to as the International System of Units, and it has become the official system of measurement by almost every country in the world. The only countries that have not adopted the metric system are the U.S., Liberia and Burma.
