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.

Gram (abbreviation: gm): is a SI (metric) system unit of mass. Where, at the temperature of melting ice, it is the absolute weight of a volume equal to the hundredth part of a metre cube of pure water.

## How to Convert Slugs to Grams

### Example: How many grams are equivalent to 81.82 slugs?

As;

1 slugs = 0.0001459 grams

81.82 slugs = Y grams

Y equals 81.82 times 0.0001459 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 81.82 * 0.0001459 / 1 = 0.011937538 grams

Answer is: 0.011937538 grams are equivalent to 81.82 slugs.
