The Difference Between a Kilogram and an Ounce

An ounce (symbol: oz) is a unit from the United States Customary and  British Imperial System that measures weight or mass. Formally known as the international avoirdupois ounce, the oz equals 28.349523125 g, and there are 16 ounces in one pound. The most common use for the ounce includes measuring food, postal weight, and objects weighing less than one pound.

The fluid ounce is different from the avoirdupois ounce. It measures the volume of a liquid and is equal to 28.4130625 mL in the Imperial System and 29.57353 mL in the US Customary System.

A kilogram (symbol: kg)  is from the metric system and measures mass. While an ounce is 1/16th of a pound, the kg is equivalent to 2.205 pounds, making it over 35 times larger.

How to Convert Kilograms to Pounds and Ounces

Units from the US Customary and British Imperial system don’t convert easily from one to another, so you’ll need to take multiple steps to convert kilograms to pounds and ounces.

To convert kilograms to pounds and ounces, we’ll convert kg to lbs. Then, we’ll convert the pounds to pounds and ounces.

As an example, we’ll convert 7 kilograms to pounds and ounces.

  • Since one kilogram equals 2.205 pounds, we’ll start by multiplying 7 x 2.205 to determine pounds. 7kg x 2.205 = 15.435 pounds
  • The decimal after the whole number represents a fraction, not ounces. To convert the decimal to ounces, we’ll multiply by 16 since there are 16 ounces in a pound. .435 lbs x 16 = 6.96
  • 7 kilograms equals 11 lbs. 6.96 oz.
