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.

Kilonewton (abbreviation: kN): is the International System of Units (SI) derived unit of force where 1 kN = 1000 N. It is named after Isaac Newton in recognition of his work on classical mechanics, specifically Newton's second law of motion.

How to Convert Slugs to Kilonewton

Example: How many kilonewton are equivalent to 9.56 slugs?


1 slugs = 0.14323269975846 kilonewton

9.56 slugs = Y kilonewton

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

Y equals 9.56 times 0.14323269975846 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 9.56 * 0.14323269975846 / 1 = 1.3693046096909 kilonewton

Answer is: 1.3693046096909 kilonewton are equivalent to 9.56 slugs.
