What is a pound

pound or pound-mass (abbreviations: lb, lbm, lbm or ℔) is a unit of mass used mainly in the imperial and United States customary. The most common definition today is the international avoirdupois pound which defined as exactly 0.45359237 kilograms, and which is divided into 16 avoirdupois ounces. So, 1 pound = 16 ounces. The symbol comes from the Roman word libra (hence the abbreviation “lb”) while the name pound is a Germanic adaptation of the Latin phrase libra pondo, “a pound by weight”. Note that the pound is a unit of mass, not a weight unit. The unit of weight is the pound-force.
