Default lbs. to X conversion

I've always used X-size for tippets. Now that I'm becoming more interested is bass and other fish, I find that y'all use pounds, which of course we all did for bait and spin casting. Does anyone have a conversion chart:

6X............... lbs.
5X............... lbs.

Also, does flourocarbon affect the conversion?

Thanks.
