The SKS packs a bigger round (7.62mm) than the m16 (5.56mm) but the m16 has a higher magazine capacity, better accuracy,and a higher rate of fire, so the SKS is more powerful, but the m16 is generally regarded as a better weapon.

Will an ak47 round fire from an m16?

No. The AK-47, AKM, and variants thereof utilize the 7.62x39 cartridge. The M16 utilizes the 5.56x45 cartridge. The two are in no way compatible. However, there are variants of the Kalashnikov rifle (AK) which utilize the 5.56x45 cartridge (e.g., the AK-101, the Polish Beryl, some variants of the Finnish Rk.62/76 and Rk.95, the Chinese Type 84, etc.), and there are some AR-15 variants (the M16 is from the AR-15 family) which will chamber the 7.62x39 cartridge. But the two specific models you mention do not fire interchangeable cartridges.
