Kilonewton (abbreviation: kN): is the International System of Units (SI) derived unit of force where 1 kN = 1000 N. It is named after Isaac Newton in recognition of his work on classical mechanics, specifically Newton's second law of motion.

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 Kilonewton to Slugs

Example: How many slugs are equivalent to 88.34 kilonewton?


1 kilonewton = 6.9816459627329 slugs

88.34 kilonewton = Y slugs

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

Y equals 88.34 times 6.9816459627329 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 88.34 * 6.9816459627329 / 1 = 616.75860434782 slugs

Answer is: 616.75860434782 slugs are equivalent to 88.34 kilonewton.
