Pound (mass)
The POUND or POUND-MASS is a unit of mass used in the imperial , United States customary and other systems of measurement . A number of different definitions have been used; the most common today is the international avoirdupois pound, which is legally defined as exactly 6999453592370000000♠0.45359237 kilograms , and which is divided into 16 avoirdupois ounces . The international standard symbol for the avoirdupois pound is LB; other symbols are LBM or LBM (for most pound definitions), # (chiefly in the U.S.), and ℔ or ″̶ (specifically for the apothecaries\' pound ). The unit is descended from the Roman libra (hence the abbreviation "lb"). The English word pound is cognate with, among others, German Pfund, Dutch pond, and Swedish pund. All ultimately derive from a borrowing into Proto-Germanic of the Latin expression lībra pondō ("a pound by weight"), in which the word pondō is the ablative case of the Latin noun pondus ("weight")
