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.

Kilogram (abbreviations: kg, or kgm): is a SI (metric) system unit of mass (IPK, also known as "Le Grand K" or "Big K") and equivalent to 1/1000 of one gram. Where, at the temperature of melting ice, one gram is the absolute weight of a volume equal to the hundredth part of a metre cube of pure water.


How to Convert Slugs to Kilograms

Example: How many kilograms are equivalent to 14.77 slugs?


As;

1 slugs = 14.59 kilograms

14.77 slugs = Y kilograms

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

Y equals 14.77 times 14.59 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 14.77 * 14.59 / 1 = 215.4943 kilograms

Answer is: 215.4943 kilograms are equivalent to 14.77 slugs.
