For every one gram you have, it equals 0.0022lbs. That means a gram is 0.2% of a pound. To think of it the other direction, 0.0022 pounds are in one gram. The equation to convert is as follows:

#### Pounds = grams x 0.0022

#### Steps

1. When you want to convert g to lb, start with your number of total grams.

2. Take that number and multiply it by .0022.

The resulting number will give you the weight in pounds.

Let's walk through a few common conversions.

#### 200 grams to pounds

This is equal to 0.44 pounds.

#### 1300 grams to lb

This is equal to 2.86lb

#### 1500 g to lbs

This is equal to 3 pounds.

### Pounds to grams

In each pound you have, there’s 453.59237 grams. Multiplying by that number will get you the conversion. Rounding up to one or two decimal places (i.e. 453.6) may seem convenient, but you’ll get more exact results by using the 6-decimal multiplier.

The equation to convert:

#### g = lb x 453.59237

### Steps

- To convert, start with your number of total pounds.
- Take that number and multiply it by 453.59237.
- The resulting number will give you the weight in grams.

Let’s do a few basic examples together to get a better understanding of this concept.

#### 2 pounds to g

This is equal to 907.18474 grams.

= 2 x 453.59237

= 907.18474

#### 1/4 lb to grams

This is equal to 113.3980925 g.

= 0.25 x 453.59237

= 113.3980925

#### 1.65 lb to g

This is equal to 725.747792 gram.

= 1.65 x 453.59237

= 725.747792

### Bottom Line

As you can see, the conversion itself is simple. The only pitfall to calculating lb to g is remembering the multiplier and its decimal values.
