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 Pounds to Slugs

### Example: How many slugs are equivalent to 21.09 pounds?

As;

1 pounds = 0.03108 slugs

21.09 pounds = Y slugs

Y equals 21.09 times 0.03108 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 21.09 * 0.03108 / 1 = 0.6554772 slugs

Answer is: 0.6554772 slugs are equivalent to 21.09 pounds.
