A stone is an English unit of mass that is equal to 14 pounds or 6.35029318 kilograms.
The name "stone" is derived from its use as a weight. It has long been used to weigh commodities and from antiquity it has had several meanings, depending on the commodity and local standards. In England in 1350, for wool the stone was set at 14 pounds and then in 1835 it became the official definition for use in the imperial system.
The stone is a unit of mass used primarily in the United Kingdom for weighing human bodies. Other countries, on the other hand, use kilograms and pounds.
The pound (symbol: lb) is a unit of measurement used primarily in the imperial and US customary systems. The international avoirdupois pound, or common pound as we use it today, is defined as exactly 0.45359237 kilograms. One avoirdupois pound is equivalent to 16 avoirdupois ounces.
The word "pound" derives from the Roman libra. It was originally used to refer to an iron weight, but has since been applied to a number of different currency weights. The modern international pound was formally established in 1959 and is based on one physical prototype weight that could be divided up into 16 ounces. This system proved so popular because 8, 4, and 2 were divisors of 16 that ensured increments remained manageable for manual measurements like weighed goods.
The pound is typically used as a unit of weight in both the United States and the United Kingdom. There are many versions of pounds that exist in the UK, although the UK primarily uses the International System of Units for measurements. In contrast, pounds are still commonly used by labelling packaged foods. The UK also often uses both pounds and kilogrammes when describing body weight, with a kilogramme being equivalent to 1000 grams.
