The stone is an English and imperial unit of mass that is now equal to 14 pounds (lbs) or 6.35029318 kilograms kg. It has long been used as a standard measure for human body weight in Britain, Ireland, and some parts of Australia.
In 1835, the International Bureau of Weights and Measures accepted it as the standard unit of mass. Since then, it has become the most widely used weight measurement worldwide, used to weigh large animals such as sacks of wool, seeds, dry fruits and more.
In the United States and some other countries, people often use pounds to express their weight. It is expected that it will take at least a generation before all populations in these places convert fully to the metric system.
People in the UK and Ireland tend to mix up terms for weight, such as “stones” with pounds. This may cause confusion for those from the US who are more used to using just pounds instead of stones.
