## How to Convert Slugs Per Cubic Feet to Pounds Per Cubic Feet

*Example: How many pounds per cubic feet are equivalent to 47.96 slugs per cubic feet?*

As;

1 slugs per cubic feet = 32.17 pounds per cubic feet

47.96 slugs per cubic feet = Y pounds per cubic feet

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 47.96 times 32.17 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 47.96 * 32.17 / 1 = 1542.8732 pounds per cubic feet

Answer is: 1542.8732 pounds per cubic feet are equivalent to 47.96 slugs per cubic feet.
