Kilopound (abbreviation: kips): is a unit of force, equivalent to 1000 pounds (lb) which is used in some systems of measurement including English Engineering units and the British Gravitational System. Also, it is a unit of mass used in the imperial, United States customary and other systems of measurement.

Slug (abbreviations: ps2pf, or lb.s2/ft): is a unit of mass in the weight-based system of measures, especially within the British Imperial measurement system and in the United States customary measures system. Systems of measure either define mass and derive weights or define a base weight and derive a mass unit. It is the mass that is accelerated by 1 ft/s2 when a force of one pound (lbf) is applied on it.

How to Convert Kilopounds to Slugs

Example: How many slugs are equivalent to 27.25 kilopounds?


1 kilopounds = 31.055900621118 slugs

27.25 kilopounds = Y slugs

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

Y equals 27.25 times 31.055900621118 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 27.25 * 31.055900621118 / 1 = 846.27329192547 slugs

Answer is: 846.27329192547 slugs are equivalent to 27.25 kilopounds.
