# lbf to kgf

This is the article which is mainly devoted to LBF (pound-force) and KGF(kilogram-force). Now that you want to understand both these units, the first thing is that you need to know the following concept.

Kilogram: – kilogram is the SI unit which is used to measure the matter inside any substance or simple words it is used to measure the mass of a body.

Force: – this is the act which is applied anybody, to make anybody move or to stop the movement of anybody, the SI unit for force is newton

Pound:- pound is another unit which is used to measure the mass of anybody.

## lbf to kgf

Therefore, now we can say that LBF and KGF are the units which are used to measure the mass-force physical quantity that is they are used to measure the weight of anybody.

LBF (pound-force):- this is the unit which is used to measure the weight of anybody, here an LBF is equal to 9.8 newtons of force.

This is interesting to know that, the value of LBF will be different in the earth and will be different on Mars and moon since LBF is the physical quantity which depends on gravitational force.

KGF (kilogram-force):- this is the unit which is used to measure the weight of anybody, and this unit is also dependent on gravitational force. One KGF is the unit of energy which is excreted anybody of mass one KG under the acceleration of 9.8 m/ s*s

Conversion, here is the equation which will help you to convert LBF to KGF and even vice versa.

•    One LBF is equal to 0.45 KGF
•    One KGF is equal to 2.2 LBF
•    Use the proper equivalent during conversion; errors are frequent while we convert one unit into another.
