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 Short Tons to Slugs

Example: How many slugs are equivalent to 5.27 Short tons?


1 Short tons = 62.111801242236 slugs

5.27 Short tons = Y slugs

Y equals 5.27 times 62.111801242236 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 5.27 * 62.111801242236 / 1 = 327.32919254658 slugs

Answer is: 327.32919254658 slugs are equivalent to 5.27 Short tons.
