I just have a very quick question about English units. On my fluids homework, I got the answer 9714.806 slugs*ft/(s^2) which seems to be right according to the solutions manual. The homework problem is asking for the force , and the solution manual is dividing 9714.806 slugs*ft/(s^2) by 1.059 (lb*s^2)/(slug*ft) to get an answer of 9714 lb. Why is this right? I thought Slugs*ft/(s^2) = lbf.
Thank you for the help.
