**Definitions:**

**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?*

As;

1 Long tons = 69.565201609453 slugs

71.65 Long tons = Y slugs

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

Y equals 71.65 times 69.565201609453 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 71.65 * 69.565201609453 / 1 = 4984.3466953173 slugs

Answer is: 4984.3466953173 slugs are equivalent to 71.65 Long tons.
