Problem displaying 1000 lb = 1 kip

Why is it that whenever i type 1000lb equals to i get 0.102 (s^2/m)*kip, while i want the output as 1000lb=1kip. Why is it that I can't get a simplified answer in kip or something other than a fundamental unit including acceleration.

 

Thank you.

Welcome to the wonderful world of units.

You're trying to compare a force (kip)

with a mass (lb)

The gravity constant (g)

is in between them.

You may want to compare kip with lbf...
