**Definitions:**

**Ounce** (abbreviation: **oz**): is a unit of mass used in customary (imperial) systems of measurement in British. It is most popular in the retail sale of groceries in the United States, also in many other matters of domestic and international trade between customary measurement driven countries.

**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 Ounces to Slugs

*Example: How many slugs are equivalent to 12.83 Ounces?*

As;

1 Ounces = 0.001943 slugs

12.83 Ounces = Y slugs

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

Y equals 12.83 times 0.001943 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 12.83 * 0.001943 / 1 = 0.02492869 slugs

Answer is: 0.02492869 slugs are equivalent to 12.83 Ounces.
