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.

Long Ton (abbreviations: Lton, or ton imperial): is a non-SI metric unit of mass. Although, it is used principally as a unit of mass, it has acquired a number of meanings and uses over long years. It is equivalent to 1,016 kilograms (Kg), or approximately 2,239.859 pounds (lb), or 1.119929 short tons (US), or 1.016 metric tons.

## How to Convert Slugs to Long Tons

### Example: How many Long tons are equivalent to 26.63 slugs?

As;

1 slugs = 0.014375003261172 Long tons
