The slug is an English and U.S. customary unit of mass. The slug is part of a subset of coherent units known as the gravitational foot-pound-second system, one of several such specialized systems of mechanical units. It is the mass that accelerates by when a force of one pound-force (lbf) is exerted on it. Therefore a slug is about 32.174 05 pounds or 14.593 90 kg.

The pound (abbreviation: lb) is a unit of mass or weight in a number of different systems, including English units, Imperial units, and United States customary units.
