Nope. Never will. Kg stands for kilograms and there's no pound in kilograms so....

No! Two very different scales of measurement. One metric, the other The U.S. Standard.

They are measures of mass from 2 different systems of measurement. Pounds are from the Imperial/US system and kilograms are from the Metric system:

1 kg = 2.2 pounds

1 pound = 0.45 kg
