Ship Unit Conversions D = displacement weight (U.S. units, long tons, lb f ) or mass (SI units, tonnes, kg) = displacement volume (m 3 , ft 3 ) W = displacement weight (kN, long tons, lb f ) D = r g (U.S. units) = (SI units) W = D (U.S. units) = g D (SI units) Mass 1 metric ton (tonne) = 1000 kg = 2204.6 lb m 1 lb m = 0.4536 kg 1 slug = 32.16 lb m 1 slug = 14.59 kg Weight 1 long ton = 2240 lb f = 1.016 metric tons = 9.968 kN 1 lb f = 4.45 N Velocity 1 knot = 1.689 ft/sec = 0.5144 m/s = 1.152 mi/hr = 6080 ft/hr = 1852 m/hr Power 1 hp = 550 ft lb/sec = 0.746 kW 1 W = 1 N m/s (seldom used: 1 metric hp = 0.735 kW = 75 kg m/s)
