Google will do it, just enter: 60kg in stone and it will give the answer. The pounds will be expressed as a decimal fraction of a stone, but bearing in mind that there are 14 lb in a stone, it is not hard to guesstimate the value in pounds fairly accurately.

Alternatively, multiply the kg figure by 2.2 (to get pounds) and divide the result by 14. Google will do that for you too. Have a look at "Google Calculator"

You don't only have the option of Google Calculator. Search under ''metric-imperial convertors'' (be specific with key words) and you will find a heap. And Excel is actually not the easiest one for conversions either, it's more of a data entry and statistics spreadsheet software.
