How to Convert Kilograms to Pints

Scales are used to measure weight

To convert a kilogram measurement to a pint measurement, divide the weight multiplied by 2.113376 by the density of the ingredient or material.

You can use this simple formula to convert:

pints = kilograms × 2.113376ingredient density

Thus, the weight in pints is equal to the kilograms times 2.113376, divided by the density of the ingredient or material.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilograms to pints for an ingredient with a density of 0.7 g/mL.
5 kg = 5 × 2.1133760.7 = 15.095546 pt

Kilograms and pints are both commonly used to measure cooking ingredients.

For cooking applications, most chefs suggest measuring dry ingredients by weight rather than volume to improve accuracy in the measurements.[1] The density of dry ingredients can vary for a variety of reasons, such as compaction.

The best way to ensure an accurate conversion is to use a scale. When a scale is not available, a calculator like the one above is a good way to estimate the weight to volume conversion.

Kilograms

The definition of the kilogram changed in 2019. One kilogram was previously equal to the mass of the platinum-iridium bar, known as the International Prototype of the Kilogram, which was stored in Sèvres, France.

The 2019 SI brochure now defines the kilogram using the Planck constant, and it is defined using the meter and second.[2] It is roughly equal to the mass of 1,000 cubic centimeters of water.

The kilogram, or kilogramme, is the SI base unit for weight and is also a multiple of the gram. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilograms can be abbreviated as kg; for example, 1 kilogram can be written as 1 kg.

Pints

The US liquid pint is a unit of fluid volume equal to one-eighth of a gallon, one-half of a quart, or two cups. The liquid pint should not be confused with the dry pint (US) or the imperial pint, which are different units.

The pint is a US customary unit of volume. Pints can be abbreviated as pt; for example, 1 pint can be written as 1 pt.
