Definitions:

Pound (abbreviations: lb, or lbs, or ps): is a unit of force used in some systems of measurement including English Engineering units and the British Gravitational System. Also, it is a unit of mass used in the imperial, United States customary and other systems of measurement.

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 Pounds to Slugs

Example: How many slugs are equivalent to 76.39 pounds?


As;

1 pounds = 0.03108 slugs

76.39 pounds = Y slugs

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

Y equals 76.39 times 0.03108 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 76.39 * 0.03108 / 1 = 2.3742012 slugs

Answer is: 2.3742012 slugs are equivalent to 76.39 pounds.
