Definitions:

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.

Short Ton (abbreviations: shton, or ton U.S.): 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 907.2 kilograms (Kg), or approximately 2000 pounds (lb), or 0.9072 metric tons, or 0.892913 long tons (imperial).


How to Convert Slugs to Short Tons

Example: How many Short tons are equivalent to 56.01 slugs?


As;

1 slugs = 0.0161 Short tons

56.01 slugs = Y Short tons

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

Y equals 56.01 times 0.0161 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 56.01 * 0.0161 / 1 = 0.90176100000001 Short tons

Answer is: 0.90176100000001 Short tons are equivalent to 56.01 slugs.
