OK,OK,OK - it's a mass. just looked it up but I think that we are
straddeling the same fence and on the right side at the same time.
I remember doing numerous physics problems where the answer was to be in
slugs force.  I think that the gist of it is in the use of lbm vs.lbf and
these are compatible.

>Up here in the Northwest, slugs en mass are a force to be reckoned with! In
engineering, it is the unit of mass in the fps system to which a pound force
can impart an acceleration of one foot per second per second.
