Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Template {{convert}} calculates measurements from one unit (you can enter) to another one, and then presents the results. For example:

{{convert|2|km|mi}} → 2 kiloਮੀਟਰs (1.2 ਮੀਲ)
{{convert|7|mi|km}} → 7 ਮੀਲs (11 kਮੀ)

The available units are listed below. Units are case-sensitive always (kW, not KW or kw). Multiple formatting and calculation options are listed below.

Unit name or symbol (abbreviation): 1 pound or 1 lb?ਸੋਧੋ

By default, the first value shows unit name spelled out, the second the symbol (or abbreviation). Use |abbr=on/off to change this behaviour:

  • {{convert|1|lb|kg}} → 1 pound (0.45 kg)

To abbreviate both:

  • {{convert|1|lb|kg|abbr=on}} → 1 lb (0.45 kg)
  • {{convert|1|lb|kg|abbr=off}} → 1 pound (0.45 kilograms)

|abbr=in is the reverse behaviour to the default, |abbr=out:

  • {{convert|1|lb|kg|abbr=in}} → 1 lb (0.45 kilograms)

Convenience: {{cvt}} has |abbr=on by defaultਸੋਧੋ

Template {{cvt}} is similar to {{convert}}, but has |abbr=on as the default behaviour. In {{cvt}}, all other options are available. So:

{{cvt|1|lb|kg}} → 1 lb (0.45 kg)

is equal to:

{{convert|1|lb|kg|abbr=on}} → 1 lb (0.45 kg)

Adjective: a 10-mile distanceਸੋਧੋ

Use |adj=on to produce the adjective form:

  • A {{convert|10|mi|km|adj=on}} distance → A 10-ਮੀਲ (16 kਮੀ) distance.

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|10|mi|km}} to go → 10 ਮੀਲs (16 kਮੀ) to go.

This option does not work with |abbr=on.

Rounding: 100 ft is 30 m or 30.5 m or 30.48 m?ਸੋਧੋ

By definition, 100 ft equals 30.48 ਮੀ. In practical use, it is common to round the calculated metric number. With that, there are several possibilities.

Default roundingਸੋਧੋ

By {{Convert}} default, the conversion result will be rounded either to precision comparable to that of the input value (the number of digits after the decimal point—or the negative of the number of non-significant zeroes before the point—is increased by one if the conversion is a multiplication by a number between 0.02 and 0.2, remains the same if the factor is between 0.2 and 2, is decreased by 1 if it is between 2 and 20, and so on) or to two significant figures, whichever is more precise. An exception to this is rounding temperatures (see below).

Examples of rounding
Input Displays as Note
{{convert|123|ft|m|-1}} 123 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (40 ਮੀ)
{{convert|123|ft|m|0}} 123 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (37 ਮੀ)
{{convert|123|ft|m|1}} 123 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (37.5 ਮੀ)
{{convert|550|ft|m|0}} 550 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (168 ਮੀ) Approximate value is 167.64 m
{{convert|550|ft|m}} 550 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (170 ਮੀ) Rounds to 170, when approximate value is 167.64 m
{{convert|500|ft|m|0}} 500 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (152 ਮੀ) Approximate value is 152.4 m
{{convert|500|ft|m}} 500 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (150 ਮੀ) Rounds to 150, when approximate value is 152.4 m

Convert supports four types of rounding:

Round to a given precision: use a precision numberਸੋਧੋ

Specify the desired precision with the fourth unnamed parameter (or third unnamed parameter if the "convert to" parameter is omitted; or fifth unnamed parameter if a range is specified; or fourth unnamed parameter again if a range is specified and the "convert to" parameter is omitted; needs to be replaced with a "precision" named parameter). The conversion is rounded off to the nearest multiple of 110 to the power of this number. For instance, if the result is 8621 and the round number is "-2", the result will be 8600. If the result is "234.0283043" and the round number is "0", the result will be 234.

Round to a given number of significant figures: |sigfig=ਸੋਧੋ

To specify the output number to be with n significant figures use |sigfig=<number>:

  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=4}} → 1,200 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (365.8 ਮੀ)
  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=3}} → 1,200 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (366 ਮੀ)
  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=2}} → 1,200 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (370 ਮੀ)
  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=1}} → 1,200 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (400 ਮੀ)

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|1200|ft|m}} → 1,200 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (370 ਮੀ)

Setting |sigfig= is meaningless

  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=0}} → 1,200 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (370 ਮੀ)*

Round to a multiple of 5: 15, 20, 25, ...ਸੋਧੋ

Using |round=5 rounds the outcome to a multiple of 5.

  • {{convert|10|m|ft}} → 10 ਮੀਟਰs (33 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)
  • {{convert|10|m|ft|round=5}} → 10 ਮੀਟਰs (35 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)

Similar: using |round=25 rounds the outcome to a multiple of 25.

  • {{convert|10|m|ft}} → 10 ਮੀਟਰs (33 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)
  • {{convert|10|m|ft|round=25}} → 10 ਮੀਟਰs (25 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|10|m|ft|sigfig=4}} → 10 ਮੀਟਰs (32.81 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)

In a range, one can round each value individually to the default. Use |round=each:

  • {{convert|10 x 200 x 3000|m|ft}} → 10 by 200 by 3,000 ਮੀਟਰs (33 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ × 656 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ × 9,843 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)
  • {{convert|10 x 200 x 3000|m|ft|round=each}} → 10 by 200 by 3,000 ਮੀਟਰs (33 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ × 660 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ × 9,800 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)

Round to a multiple of a given fraction: 2 316 inchਸੋਧੋ

Specify the desired denominator using |frac=<some positive integer>. (Denominator is the below-the-slash number, for example the 3 in 13).

  • {{convert|5.56|cm|in|frac=16}} → 5.56 centiਮੀਟਰs (2 316 ਇੰਚ)
  • {{convert|8|cm|in|frac=4}} → 8 centiਮੀਟਰs (3 14 ਇੰਚ)

The fraction is reduced when possible:

  • {{convert|8|cm|in|frac=100}} → 8 centiਮੀਟਰs (3 320 ਇੰਚ)

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|8|cm|in}} → 8 centiਮੀਟਰs (3.150 ਇੰਚ)

In temperatures: rounding °C, °F and Kਸੋਧੋ

In temperatures, the conversion will be rounded either to precision comparable to that of the input value or to that which would give three significant figures when expressed in kelvins, whichever is more precise.

  1. Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".
  2. Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".
  3. Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".
  4. Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".
  5. Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".
  6. Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".

The precision of the input number in example (1) is one digit, but the precision of its Kelvins expression is three, so the precision of the Fahrenheit conversion is made three (made 180...) . (1) and (2) seem to belie the fact that a 0.1 degrees Celsius change is a 0.18 degrees Fahrenheit change, and make the 32 degrees difference shown in (1) begin to seem off somehow. Result (1) seems off until you set the significant figures yourself with |sigfig=:

Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".

or you set the precision positionally, relative to the decimal point (zero being at the decimal point):

Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".

The precision of the input number in example (2) is six, so the precision of the Fahrenheit output is, whereas before, Kelvins had determined it to be three. Examples (3) and (4) show how this can be hidden and generate questions, but it occurs there because the Kelvins conversion generated two fractional parts. (Before it was the input number that generated the fractional part.) In example (3) the three input digits converted into into five significant output digits because of the two numbers after the decimal point, generated by the Kelvins conversion. This happened again in (5), but in (6) decimal fractions were neither given as input nor induced by the Kelvins conversion.

Into multiple units: 10 °C (50 °F; 283 K)ਸੋਧੋ

Separate the multiple output units by a space:

  • {{convert|10|C|F K}} → 10 °C (50 °F; 283 K)
  • {{convert|5|km|mi nmi}} → 5 kiloਮੀਟਰs (3.1 ਮੀਲ; 2.7 nmi)

If the output unit names contain spaces, use + as the separator.

Ranges of valuesਸੋਧੋ

A range converts two values and separates them by your choice of words and punctuation.

A range: 6 to 17 kg (13 to 37 lb)ਸੋਧੋ

Range indicators are entered as the second parameter (between the values). Range separators can be:

  • {{convert|6|by|12|ft|m}} → 6 by 12 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (1.8 by 3.7 ਮੀ)

Use ×, multiplication sign, or x, letter:

  • {{convert|6|x|12|m|ft}} → 6 by 12 ਮੀਟਰs (20 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ × 39 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)

In science, the formal way is to set |x| and |abbr=on (keeping dimensions right, like in area = x km2):

  • {{convert|6|x|12|m|ft|abbr=on}} → 6 ਮੀ × 12 ਮੀ (20 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ × 39 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)

About feet, inch in ranges and multiplesਸੋਧੋ

While it is possible to enter feet, inch in a simple conversion, this is not possible for ranges:

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|1|ft|3|in|mm}} → 1 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ 3 ਇੰਚ (380 mਮੀ)


Spelling of unit name: UK metre or US meter?ਸੋਧੋ

Default spelling of units is en-UK. To show en-US spelling, use |sp=us:

{{convert|1|m|ft}} → 1 ਮੀਟਰ (3.3 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)—default
{{convert|1|m|ft|sp=us}} → 1 ਮੀਟਰ (3.3 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)

Spell out numbers: ten milesਸੋਧੋ

To write a number in words, use |spell=in:

  • {{convert|10|mi|m|spell=in}} → ten ਮੀਲs (16,000 ਮੀ)

To spell out both in and out values, use |spell=on:

  • {{convert|10|mi|m|spell=on}} → ten ਮੀਲs (sixteen thousand ਮੀਟਰs)

To make first letter a capital, use |spell=In, |spell=On

  • {{convert|10|mi|m|spell=In}} → Ten ਮੀਲs (16,000 ਮੀ)
  • {{convert|10|mi|m|spell=On}} → Ten ਮੀਲs (sixteen thousand ਮੀਟਰs)

Remember that the spelling of the units (ft, m) is independently set by |abbr=. To the extreme:

  • {{convert|10|mi|m|spell=on|abbr=off|sp=us}} → ten ਮੀਲs (sixteen thousand ਮੀਟਰs)

Inserted before units: 4 planted acresਸੋਧੋ

  • {{convert|4|acre||adj=pre|planted}} → 4 planted ਏਕੜs (1.6 ha)

disp=preunit is similar, but has no separator after the specified text, and can have different text for the output value:

  • {{convert|4|acre||disp=preunit|planted }} → 4 planted ਏਕੜs (1.6 planted ha)
  • {{convert|4|acre||disp=preunit|planted |reforested-}} → 4 planted ਏਕੜs (1.6 reforested-ha)

After adjective unit: A 10-ਫ਼ੁੱਟ-long corridorਸੋਧੋ

{{convert|10|ft|m|adj=mid|-long}} → 10-ਫ਼ੁੱਟ-long (3.0 ਮੀ)

Plurals: 1 inch, 2 inchesਸੋਧੋ

The unit symbol is singular always. Depending on the preceding number only, a unit name can be shown plural.

  • {{convert|1|metre}} → 1 ਮੀਟਰ (3 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ 3 ਇੰਚ)
  • {{convert|2|metre}} → 2 ਮੀਟਰs (6 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ 7 ਇੰਚ)
  • {{convert|2|metre|abbr=on}} → 2 ਮੀ (6 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ 7 ਇੰਚ)

Entering the unit spelled |foot| forces singular output "foot", whatever the number is.

  • {{convert|100|foot|abbr=off}} → 100 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (30 ਮੀਟਰs)


Using an SI prefix: gigameter (Gm), or micrometer (μm)ਸੋਧੋ

ਫਰਮਾ:Sidebar metric prefixes (small) Units can have an SI prefix like G before the unit: Gm, and giga before the name: gigameter. These are plain multiplication factors.

To illustrate, these are trivial calculations (from meter to meter), showing the multiplication factor:

  • 12 Gਮੀ (1.2×1010 ਮੀ)
  • 12 μਮੀ (1.2×10−5 ਮੀ)

The prefix can be added before the SI unit (here: unit m for meter):

  • {{convert|12|Gm|mi|abbr=on}} → 12 Gਮੀ (7,500,000 ਮੀਲ)
  • Mm: 12 Mਮੀ (7,500 ਮੀਲ)
  • km: 12 kਮੀ (39,000 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)
  • mm: 12 mਮੀ (0.47 ਇੰਚ)
  • μm: 12 μਮੀ (0.012 mਮੀ)
  • um: 12 μਮੀ (0.012 mਮੀ) (letter "u" can be used for "μ" here)

The prefix can be used in the output unit:

  • {{convert|12000|mi|Mm|abbr=on}} → 12,000 ਮੀਲ (19 Mਮੀ)
  • {{convert|12|in|μm|abbr=on}} → 12 ਇੰਚ (300,000 μਮੀ)

As an exception, the non-SI unit "inch" can have the "μ" prefix too)

  • {{convert|12|μm|μin|abbr=on}} → 12 μਮੀ (470 μin)

Engineering notation: 7 × 106 mਸੋਧੋ

In the unit: e6mਸੋਧੋ

Engineering number notations like 7E6 (for 7 × 106) can be entered as a "prefix" to the unit:

  • {{convert|7|e6m}} → 7 million ਮੀਟਰs (23,000,000 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)

The same is possible for the output unit:

  • {{convert|23,000,000|ft|e6m}} → 23,000,000 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ (7.0×10^6 ਮੀ)

Any standard unit (not a combination, multiple, or built-in unit) can have such a prefix:

  • e3 (thousand),
  • e6 (million),
  • e9 (billion),
  • e12 (trillion),
  • e15 (quadrillion).

Scientific notation: 1.23×10−14ਸੋਧੋ

In scientific notation, a number is written like 1.23×10−14. The plain number has exactly one digit before the decimal point.

With {{convert}}, the input can be in e-notation such as 12.3e4. This value is displayed as a power of ten, and the output is displayed in scientific notation, except that an output value satisfying 0.01 <= v < 1000 is shown as a normal number. In addition, if the output value is 1000 and sigfig=4 is used, the value is displayed as a normal number.

  • {{convert|12.3e-15|atm|atm|abbr=on}} → 12.3×10−15 atm (1.23×10−14 atm)
  • {{convert|0.00000005|atm|atm|abbr=on}} → 0.00000005 atm (5.0×10−8 atm)

Input with fractions: 1 12 ਇੰਚ (38.1 mਮੀ)ਸੋਧੋ

The number to convert can be written in fractions. Both / (keyboard slash) and (fraction slash) are accepted:

  • {{convert|1/2|in|mm|1}}12 ਇੰਚ (12.7 mਮੀ)
  • {{convert|1⁄2|in|mm|1}}12 ਇੰਚ (12.7 mਮੀ)

With integers, use a + sign

  • {{convert|2+1⁄2|in|mm|1}}2 12 ਇੰਚ (63.5 mਮੀ)

When negative, use a hyphen - and repeat it:

  • {{convert|-2-1⁄2|in|mm|1}}−2 12 ਇੰਚ (−63.5 mਮੀ)
  • {{convert|2-1⁄2|in|mm|1}} → 2–12 ਇੰਚ (50.8–12.7 mਮੀ) Note: this is read as a range
  • {{convert|-2+1⁄2|in|mm|1}}[convert: invalid number] ਫਰਮਾ:Nay Should be a number, not an expression (do not require a calculation)

Output with horizontal fraction bar in: 1/2 inchਸੋਧੋ

Using a double slash (//) returns a horizontal bar fraction:

  • {{convert|1//2|in|mm|1}}1/2 ਇੰਚ (12.7 mਮੀ)
  • {{convert|2+1//2|in|mm|1}}2 1/2 ਇੰਚ (63.5 mਮੀ)

Thousands separator: 1,000 mi or 1000 miਸੋਧੋ

In input, a comma for thousands separator is accepted but not required; a gap (space) is not accepted. In output, by default, the thousand separator is the comma:

  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft}} → 1,234,567 ਮੀਟਰs (4,050,417 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)
  • {{convert|1,234,567|m|ft}} → 1,234,567 ਮੀਟਰs (4,050,417 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)
  • {{convert|1 234 567|m|ft}}[convert: invalid number] ਫਰਮਾ:Nay

Set |comma=off to remove the separator from the output:

  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft|comma=off}} → 1234567 ਮੀਟਰs (4050417 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)

Use |comma=gaps to use digit grouping by gap (thin space) as a thousands separator:

  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft|comma=gaps}}1234567 ਮੀਟਰs (4050417 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft}} → 1,234,567 ਮੀਟਰs (4,050,417 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)

Setting |comma=5 or |comma=gaps5 will only add the separator when the number of digits is 5 or more:

  • {{convert|1234|m|ft|comma=5}} → 1234 ਮੀਟਰs (4049 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)
  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft|comma=5}} → 1,234,567 ਮੀਟਰs (4,050,417 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)
  • {{convert|1234|m|ft|comma=gaps5}} → 1,234 ਮੀਟਰs (4,049 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)*
  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft|comma=gaps5}} → 1,234,567 ਮੀਟਰs (4,050,417 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)*

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|1234|m|ft}} → 1,234 ਮੀਟਰs (4,049 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)

Output manipulationਸੋਧੋ

Brackets and separators: 10 m [33 ft]ਸੋਧੋ

Punctuation that distinguishes the two measurements is set by |disp=.
Options are: b (the default), sqbr, comma, or, br, x|…:

  • {{convert|10|m|ft|disp=sqbr}} → 10 ਮੀਟਰs [33 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ]
  • {{convert|10|m|ft|disp=comma}} → 10 ਮੀਟਰs, 33 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ
  • {{convert|10|m|ft|disp=or}} → 10 ਮੀਟਰs or 33 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|10|m|ft}} → 10 ਮੀਟਰs (33 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)

Setting |disp=br will force a new line (<br/>)

  • {{convert|10|m|ft|disp=br}} → 10 ਮੀਟਰs
    33 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ

Also |disp=br() will force a new line, and keep the brackets:

  • {{convert|10|m|ft|disp=br()}} → 10 ਮੀਟਰs
    (33 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)

Setting |disp=x|… allows any text as separator:

  • {{convert|10|m|ft|disp=x|_MyText_}} → 10 ਮੀਟਰs_MyText_33 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ—(To display spaces, use &nbsp;)

Flipping (reordering) the two measurements: 1,609.3 ਮੀਟਰs (1 ਮੀਲ)ਸੋਧੋ

Setting |order=flip will flip (swap) the two measurements:

  • {{convert|1|mi|m|order=flip}} → 1,609.3 ਮੀਟਰs (1 ਮੀਲ)

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|1|mi|m}} → 1 ਮੀਲ (1,609.3 ਮੀਟਰs)

When converting to multiple units, the effect is:

  • {{convert|10|km|mi nmi|order=flip}} → 6.2137 ਮੀਲs; 5.3996 nautical miles (10 kiloਮੀਟਰs)
  • {{convert|10|km|nmi mi|order=flip}} → 5.3996 nautical miles; 6.2137 ਮੀਲs (10 kiloਮੀਟਰs)

  • {{convert|2|kPa|psi|abbr=~}} → 2 kilopascals [kPa] (0.29 psi)
  • A {{convert|2|kPa|psi|abbr=~|adj=on}} pressureA 2-kilopascal [kPa] (0.29 psi) pressure

Table optionsਸੋਧੋ

For the wikitable structure, there are three options: add a line-break, split the result over columns and make the table sortable.

Enforced line breakਸੋਧੋ

|disp=br adds a line-break and omits brackets.

|disp=br() adds a line-break and does add brackets to the converted value. This may be useful in tables:

|disp=br |disp=br()
100 kiloਮੀਟਰs
62 ਮੀਲs
100 kiloਮੀਟਰs
(62 ਮੀਲs)

Table columns showing numbers onlyਸੋਧੋ

Using {convert} in a table cell, with |disp=table splits the result over two columns:

{{convert|10|m|ft|disp=table}} → style="text-align:right;"|10


|disp=tablecen does the same, and also centers the text:

{{convert|20|m|ft|disp=tablecen}} → style="text-align:center;"|20


The units are added as a column header:

  m ft
|disp=table 10 33
|disp=tablecen 20 66
|disp=<other> (default) 30 ਮੀਟਰs (98 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ)


Use |sortable=on to include a hidden numerical sortkey in the output, suitable for use in a table with sortable columns. Technically, this places a hidden string before the actual displayed values:

{{convert|10|m|ft|sortable=on}} → <span style="display:none">7001100000000000000</span>10 metres (33&nbsp;ft)

Use both |disp=table and |sortable=on together to produce table columns (pipe symbols) for each value in sortable columns:

m ft
A 15 34 52
B 15.5 51
C 16.0 52.5
D 16 52

The generated sortkey is calculated in a consistent way based on both the value and its unit as passed to the convert template. In most cases convert uses the passed value converted to SI base units. It is therefore not necessarily the displayed value or other alternate units and is calculated regardless of output format options. Using different units or different order of units in individual rows should therefore not lead to incorrect sorting, although variations in rounding can give surprising results, since an unrounded number is used for the sortkey.


All unitsਸੋਧੋ

The table below lists units supported by this template. It is divided up according to the quantity being measured. Not all supported units are listed here; there are links to more complete lists for each quantity.

The codes listed in the code column (column 3) are accepted as input by the template. These can be used as the second or third unnamed parameter. For some units there exist alternative codes. These are listed in brackets and have been incorporated to make the code more flexible for editors, e.g. °F or F may be entered.

The codes listed in the combinations column (column 7) can be used to produce multiple conversions. They can only be used as the third unnamed parameter, e.g. {{Convert|55|nmi|km mi}} produces "55 nautical miles (102 kਮੀ; 63 ਮੀਲ)".

'per' units: kg/hlਸੋਧੋ

When using a slash (/), a unit like kg/hl is recognized as kilograms per hectolitre and will be converted with other mass/volume units.

  • {{convert|1000|kg/hl}} → 1,000 kilograms per hectolitre (100 lb/imp gal)

Units of difference: 10 °C higher; how much in °Fਸੋਧੋ

When a number is the measurement for a difference, one conversion is done. This may occur in temperatures (°C, °F, K). Compare this to a range, when two conversions are done.

The only available units of difference are: |C-change=, |F-change= and |K-change=.

  • Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate"., regular temperature
  • Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate"., difference (e.g., "The temperature changed from 30 into 40 °C")
  • Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate"., range (e.g., "The temperature is between 10 and 15 °C")

Consistently, into multiple units:

  • A rise of {{convert|10|C-change|F-change K-change}} → A rise of 10 °C (18 °F; 10 K)

Multiple units: 1 ft 5 inਸੋਧੋ

In inputਸੋਧੋ

Base document ਫਰਮਾ:Slink lists options for multiple unit input (like ft,in). It can catch predefined sets only (units that can be subdivided; e.g., yd into ft):

  • {{convert|1|yd|2|ft|3|in}} → 1 yard 2 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ 3 ਇੰਚ (1.60 ਮੀ)
  • {{convert|2|ft|3|in|cm}} → 2 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ 3 ਇੰਚ (69 cਮੀ)
  • {{convert|1|lb|5|oz|g}} → 1 pound 5 ounces (600 g)

In outputਸੋਧੋ

Available multiple-unit output options predefined, like ftin and ydftin. The full list is at ਫਰਮਾ:Slink.

  • {{convert|2|m|ftin}} → 2 ਮੀਟਰs (6 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ 7 ਇੰਚ)
  • {{convert|2|m|ft in}} → 2 ਮੀਟਰs (6.6 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ; 79 ਇੰਚ), using a space, returns the decimal point

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|2|m}} → 2 ਮੀਟਰs (6 ਫ਼ੁੱਟ 7 ਇੰਚ)

See also:

  • {{hands}} a length used to measure horses
  • {{Long ton}} a weight in ton, cwt, qr and lb

Currency per unit: $/mi, €/kmਸੋਧੋ

Using currency symbols in a $ per unit value, you can convert the per-unit:

  • {{convert|10|$/mi|$/km}} → $10 per ਮੀਲ ($6.2/kਮੀ)

You can set the currency in both values using |$=€:

  • {{convert|10|$/mi|$/km|$=€}} → €10 per ਮੀਲ (€6.2/kਮੀ)

It is not possible to convert the currency. So, this result (mixed currencies) is not possible: $15 per mile (€8.6/km) ਫਰਮਾ:Nay
