Long Ton (abbreviations: Lton, or ton imperial): is a non-SI metric unit of mass. Although, it is used principally as a unit of mass, it has acquired a number of meanings and uses over long years. It is equivalent to 1,016 kilograms (Kg), or approximately 2,239.859 pounds (lb), or 1.119929 short tons (US), or 1.016 metric tons.

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 Long Tons to Slugs

Example: How many slugs are equivalent to 71.65 Long tons?


1 Long tons = 69.565201609453 slugs
