Find the value of 15.0 N in pounds. Use the conversions 1 slug= 14.59 kg and 1 ft= .3048m .?

Answer 1

1 N = 1 kg m/s^2
14.59 kg = 1 slug
1 kg = 1/14.59 slug
0.3048 m = 1 ft
1 m = 1/0.3048 ft

so
1 N = 1/14.59 slug x 1/0.3048 ft /s^2 = 0.2249 lb.

Answer 2

15kg*m (1 slug/14.59kg) (1ft/0.3048) = 3.37

You practically ignore s^2 since you don’t need to convert it.
