# C Program to Convert Kilograms to Pounds

In this post, we will learn how to convert kilogram to pounds using C Programming language.

This program asks the user to enter the weight in kilograms, then it converts it into pounds using the conversion factor:

• 1 Kilogram = 2.20462 Pounds

So, without further ado, letâ€™s begin this tutorial.

## C Program to Convert Kilograms to Pounds

```// C Program to Convert Kilograms to Pounds
#include <stdio.h>
int main(){
float kg, lbs;

printf("Enter the mass in Kilograms: ");
scanf("%f", &kg);

// Kilogram to Pounds Conversion
lbs = kg * 2.20462;

// Displaying output
printf("%.2f Kilograms = %.2f Pounds", kg, lbs);
return 0;
}
```

Output

``````Enter the mass in Kilograms: 2
2.00 Kilograms = 4.41 Pounds
``````

## How Does This Program Work ?

```    float kg, lbs;
```

In this program, we have declared two float data type variables named kg and lbs.

```    // Asking for input
printf("Enter the mass in Kilograms: ");
scanf("%f", &kg);
```

Then, the user is asked to enter the mass in kilograms. This value gets stored in the kg named variable.

```    // Kilogram to Pounds Conversion
lbs = kg * 2.20462;
```

We convert kilograms into pounds using the data, 1 Kilograms = 2.20462 Pounds.

```    // Displaying output
printf("%.2f Kilograms = %.2f Pounds", kg, lbs);
```

Finally, the weight in pounds is printed on the screen using printf() function.
