1 pound (lb) = 453.592 grams (g)

## Grams in the international measurement system

Grams (g) are an essential unit of weight in the international measurement system.

Typically, this unit of weight is intended for the food industry. It is common for products to have their content reflected on the packaging as: 300 grams of Pasta and many other examples. It is also common that when going to a dedicated establishment such as a greengrocer, it is necessary to ask the manager of the establishment, the desired product in grams: 500 grams of fresh strawberries, 500 grams of mango.

To relate these weights to other markets, which have a different system of units (like the European market), it is necessary to know how to calculate these weights in grams or pounds.

## Let’s go with a practical example

You want to buy 800 grams of apples in a greengrocer in the United States, but for this you must know this weight in pounds.

Since a pound is equal to 0.453592 kilograms (1 pound = 0.453592 kg) we can say in turn that 1 pound is 453.592 grams (1 pound = 453.592 g).

The result is that 800 grams of apples equals 1.7636 pounds.

With this relationship we can perform a simple mathematical operation as in the previous cases we have studied.

We must divide the weight of the apples (800 g) by the value in grams that represents a pound of weight (453,592 gr).
