First, let's establish some basic knowledge. The metric system is based on units of ten, which means that conversions are relatively straightforward. The base unit for weight in the metric system is the kilogram (kg), whereas in the imperial system (used mainly in the United States), the base unit for weight is the pound (lb).
To convert 52 kg in pounds, we need to use a conversion factor of 2.20462. This means that 1 kilogram is equal to 2.20462 pounds. To convert 52 kg to pounds, we simply multiply 52 by 2.20462.
