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}} → ୨ କିଲୋମିଟର (୧.୨ mi)
{{convert|7|mi|km}} → ୭ ମାଇଲ (୧୧ କି.ମି.)

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

Unit name or symbol (abbreviation): 1 pound or 1 lb?[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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}} → ୧ pound (୦.୪୫ kg) (To compare; default: first value shows unit name)
{{convert|1|lb|kg|abbr=on}} → ୧ lb (୦.୪୫ kg)
{{convert|1|lb|kg|abbr=off}} → ୧ pound (୦.୪୫ kilograms)
  • |abbr=in toggles the default behaviour (|abbr=out):
{{convert|1|lb|kg|abbr=in}} → ୧ lb (୦.୪୫ kilograms)

Adjective: a 10-mile distance[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

Use |adj=on to produce the adjective form. The difference:

{{convert|10|mi|km}} to go → ୧୦ ମାଇଲ (୧୬ କି.ମି.) to go. (To compare, default)
A {{convert|10|mi|km|adj=on}} distance → A ୧୦-ମାଇଲ (୧୬ କି.ମି.) distance. (Adjective form)

This option does not work with |abbr=on.

Rounding: 100 ft is 30 m or 30.5 m or 30.48 m?[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

By definition, 100 ft equals ୩୦.୪୮ m. In practical use, it is common to round the calculated metric number. With that, there are several possibilities.

Default rounding[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

By 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}} ୧୨୩ feet (୪୦ m)
{{convert|123|ft|m|0}} ୧୨୩ feet (୩୭ m)
{{convert|123|ft|m|1}} ୧୨୩ feet (୩୭.୫ m)
{{convert|550|ft|m|0}} ୫୫୦ feet (୧୬୮ m) Approximate value is 167.64 m
{{convert|550|ft|m}} ୫୫୦ feet (୧୭୦ m) Rounds to 170, when approximate value is 167.64 m
{{convert|500|ft|m|0}} ୫୦୦ feet (୧୫୨ m) Approximate value is 152.4 m
{{convert|500|ft|m}} ୫୦୦ feet (୧୫୦ m) Rounds to 150, when approximate value is 152.4 m

Convert supports four types of rounding:

Round to a given precision: use |precision=[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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 power of 110 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=[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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

  • To compare: {{convert|1200|ft|m}} → ୧,୨୦୦ feet (୩୭୦ m)
  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=4}} → ୧,୨୦୦ feet (୩୬୫.୮ m)
  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=3}} → ୧,୨୦୦ feet (୩୬୬ m)
  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=2}} → ୧,୨୦୦ feet (୩୭୦ m)
  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=1}} → ୧,୨୦୦ feet (୪୦୦ m)

Setting |sigfig= is meaningless

  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=0}} → ୧,୨୦୦ feet (୩୭୦ m)

Round to a multiple of 5: 15, 20, 25, ...[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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

{{convert|10|m|ft}} → ୧୦ metres (୩୩ ft)
{{convert|10|m|ft|round=5}} → ୧୦ metres (୩୫ ft)

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

{{convert|10|m|ft}} → ୧୦ metres (୩୩ ft)
{{convert|10|m|ft|round=25}} → ୧୦ metres (୨୫ ft)
To compare: {{convert|10|m|ft|sigfig=4}} → ୧୦ metres (୩୨.୮୧ ft)

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

{{convert|10 x 200 x 3000|m|ft}} → ୧୦ by ୨୦୦ by ୩,୦୦୦ metres (୩୩ ft × ୬୫୬ ft × ୯,୮୪୩ ft)
{{convert|10 x 200 x 3000|m|ft|round=each}} → ୧୦ by ୨୦୦ by ୩,୦୦୦ metres (୩୩ ft × ୬୬୦ ft × ୯,୮୦୦ ft)

Round to a multiple of a given fraction: 2 316 inch[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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}} → ୫.୫୬ centimetres ( ୧୬ in)
{{convert|8|cm|in|frac=4}} → ୮ centimetres (  in)

The fraction is reduced when possible:

{{convert|8|cm|in|frac=100}} → ୮ centimetres ( ୨୦ in)
{{convert|8|cm|in}} → ୮ centimetres (୩.୧୫୦ in) (To compare)

In temperatures: rounding °C, °F and K[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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. {{convert|10,000|C|F K}} → ୧୦,୦୦୦ °C (୧୮,୦୦୦ °F; ୧୦,୩୦୦ K)
  2. {{convert|10,000.1|C|F K}} → ୧୦,୦୦୦.୧ °C (୧୮,୦୩୨.୨ °F; ୧୦,୨୭୩.୨ K)
  3. {{convert|-272|C|F K}} → −୨୭୨ °C (−୪୫୭.୬୦ °F; ୧.୧୫ K)
  4. {{convert|-272|C}} → −୨୭୨ °C (−୪୫୭.୬୦ °F)
  5. {{convert|-300|C|F K}} → −୩୦୦ °C (−୫୦୮.୦ °F; −୨୬.୯ K)
  6. {{convert|0|C|F K}} → ୦ °C (୩୨ °F; ୨୭୩ K)

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 ୦.୧ degrees Celsius change is a ୦.୧୮ 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=:

{{convert|10000|C|sigfig=5}} → ୧୦,୦୦୦ °C (୧୮,୦୩୨ °F)

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

{{convert|10000|C|0}} → ୧୦,୦୦୦ °C (୧୮,୦୩୨ °F)

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: ୧୦ °C (୫୦ °F; ୨୮୩ K)[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

Separate the multiple output units by a space:

{{convert|10|C|F K}} → ୧୦ °C (୫୦ °F; ୨୮୩ K)
{{convert|5|km|mi nmi}} → ୫ କିଲୋମିଟର (୩.୧ mi; ୨.୭ nmi)

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

Ranges of values[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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)[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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

Multiple dimensions: ୬ m × ୧୨ m (୨୦ ft × ୩୯ ft)[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

Use "by"
{{convert|6|by|12|ft|m}} → ୬ by ୧୨ feet (୧.୮ by ୩.୭ m)
Use "×" or ""x""
{{convert|6|x|12|m|ft}} → ୬ by ୧୨ metres (୨୦ ft × ୩୯ ft)

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}} → ୬ m × ୧୨ m (୨୦ ft × ୩୯ ft)

About feet, inch in ranges and multiples[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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

  • {{convert|1|ft|3|in|mm}} → ୧ foot ୩ inches (୩୮୦ mm) (to compare)
  • {{convert|1|ft|3|in|x|3|ft|5|in|mm}} → ୧ foot ୩ inches ([convert: %s]%s)


Spelling of unit name: UK metre or US meter?[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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

{{convert|1|m|ft}} → ୧ metre (୩.୩ ft)—default
{{convert|1|m|ft|sp=us}} → ୧ meter (୩.୩ ft)

Spell out numbers: ten miles[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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

{{convert|10|mi|m|spell=in}} → ten ମାଇଲ (୧୬,୦୦୦ m)

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

{{convert|10|mi|m|spell=on}} → ten ମାଇଲ (sixteen thousand metres)

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

{{convert|10|mi|m|spell=In}} → Ten ମାଇଲ (୧୬,୦୦୦ m)
{{convert|10|mi|m|spell=On}} → Ten ମାଇଲ (sixteen thousand metres)

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 ମାଇଲ (sixteen thousand meters)

Extra words: 4 planted acres[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

Incomplete section
{{convert|4|acre||adj=pre|planted}} → ୪ planted acres (୧.୬ ha)

Extra adjective words: A ୧୦-foot-long corridor[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

{{convert|4|ft|m|adj=mid|-long}} → ୧୦-foot-long (୩.୦ m)

Plurals: 1 inch, 2 inches[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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

  • {{convert|1|metre}} → ୧ metre (୩ ft ୩ in)
  • {{convert|2|metre}} → ୨ metres (୬ ft ୭ in)
  • {{convert|2|metre|abbr=on}} → ୨ m (୬ ft ୭ in)

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

  • {{convert|100|foot|abbr=off}} → ୧୦୦ foot (୩୦ metres)

Extreme changes for grammatical structure: The 18-, 24- and 32-pounder (8, 11 and 15 kg) cannons[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

This example is from the article Fort McHenry:

The American defenders had 18-, 24- and 32-pounder (8, 11 and 15 kg) cannons.

You can't get this sentence structure as a direct result of using {{convert}} and its options. However, you can get the correctly converted numbers and the grammatical structure you want to use by using {{convert}} plus three stages of editing, previewing and saving versions of the text you wish to change.

Stage 1: Enter the input numbers and units in {{convert}} as usual (this stage is just to get the calculated output):
  • had {{convert|18 |, |24 |, |32 |lb |kg |0 }} cannons
Get the converted data below by clicking Preview or Save:
→ had ୧୮, ୨୪, ୩୨ pounds (୮, ୧୧, ୧୫ kg) cannons
Stage 2: Change the resulting text from a {{convert|...}} template result to plain code by adding subst: to the template name (short for "substitution") :
  • had {{subst:convert|18 |, |24 |, |32 |lb |kg |0 }} cannons
Double-check this by clicking Preview. The preview will show the converted numbers are still correct:
→ had 18, 24, 32 pounds (8, 11, 15 kg) cannons
Then click Save.
Stage 3: Click Edit at the top of the article again, and then go to the text in the editing window. You'll see that the text is there in plain code. The template {{convert|...}} itself will have disappeared. You can change the text as needed. The substituted text and plain code in the editing window in this example would be:
had 18,&nbsp;24,&nbsp;32 pounds (8,&nbsp;11,&nbsp;15&nbsp;kg) cannons
You can edit this text as usual to add the grammatical features you wish. In this example, editing the above text to:
  • had 18-,_24-_and_32-pounder (8,&nbsp;11_and_15&nbsp;kg) cannons
And then save your edit will show the following result in the article text:
→ "had 18-, 24- and 32-pounder (8, 11 and 15 kg) cannons"


Using an SI prefix: gigameter (Gm), or micrometer (μm)[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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:

  • ୧୨ Gm (୧.୨×୧୦୧୦ m)
  • ୧୨ µm (୧.୨×୧୦−୫ m)

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

  • {{convert|12|Gm|mi|abbr=on}} → ୧୨ Gm (୭,୫୦୦,୦୦୦ mi)
  • Mm: ୧୨ Mm (୭,୫୦୦ mi)
  • km: ୧୨ କି.ମି. (୩୯,୦୦୦ ft)
  • mm: ୧୨ mm (୦.୪୭ in)
  • μm: ୧୨ µm (୦.୦୧୨ mm)
  • um: ୧୨ µm (୦.୦୧୨ mm) (letter "u" can be used for "μ" here)

The prefix can be used in the output unit:

  • {{convert|12000|mi|Mm|abbr=on}} → ୧୨,୦୦୦ mi (୧୯ Mm)
  • {{convert|12|in|μm|abbr=on}} → ୧୨ in (୩୦୦,୦୦୦ µm)

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

  • {{convert|12|μm|μin|abbr=on}} → ୧୨ µm (୪୭୦ µin)

Engineering notation: 7 × 106 m[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

In the unit: e6m[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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

{{convert|7|e6m}} → ୭ million metres (୨୩,୦୦୦,୦୦୦ ft)

The same is possible for the output unit:

{{convert|23,000,000|ft|e6m}} → ୨୩,୦୦୦,୦୦୦ feet (୭.୦×୧୦^ m)

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: 1.23×10−14[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

In scientific notation, a number is written like ୧.୨୩×10−୧୪. 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}} → ୧୨.୩×୧୦−୧୫ atm (୧.୨୩×୧୦−୧୪ atm)
  • {{convert|0.00000005|atm|atm|abbr=on}} → ୦.୦୦୦୦୦୦୦୫ atm (୫.୦×୧୦−୮ atm)

Input with fractions:   inches (୩୮.୧ mm)[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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

{{convert|1/2|in|mm|1}} inch (୧୨.୭ mm)
{{convert|1⁄2|in|mm|1}} inch (୧୨.୭ mm)

With integers, use a + sign

{{convert|2+1⁄2|in|mm|1}}  inches (୬୩.୫ mm)

When negative, use a hyphen - and repeat it:

{{convert|-2-1⁄2|in|mm|1}}−୨  inches (−୬୩.୫ mm)
{{convert|2-1⁄2|in|mm|1}} → ୨– inch (୫୦.୮–୧୨.୭ mm) Note: this is read as a range
{{convert|-2+1⁄2|in|mm|1}}[convert: %s]%s Red XN Should be a number, not an expression (do not require a calculation)

Output with horizontal fraction bar in: 1/2 inch[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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

  • {{convert|1//2|in|mm|1}}/ inch (୧୨.୭ mm)
  • {{convert|2+1//2|in|mm|1}} / inches (୬୩.୫ mm)

Thousands separator: 1,000 mi or 1000 mi[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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}} → ୧,୨୩୪,୫୬୭ metres (୪,୦୫୦,୪୧୭ ft)
  • {{convert|1,234,567|m|ft}} → ୧,୨୩୪,୫୬୭ metres (୪,୦୫୦,୪୧୭ ft)
  • {{convert|1 234 567|m|ft}}[convert: %s]%s Red XN

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

  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft|comma=off}} → ୧୨୩୪୫୬୭ metres (୪୦୫୦୪୧୭ ft)%s%s

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

  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft}} → ୧,୨୩୪,୫୬୭ metres (୪,୦୫୦,୪୧୭ ft) (To compare, default)
  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft|comma=gaps}}୨୩୪୫୬୭ metres (୦୫୦୪୧୭ ft)

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

  • {{convert|1234|m|ft}} → ୧,୨୩୪ metres (୪,୦୪୯ ft) (To compare, default)
  • {{convert|1234|m|ft|comma=5}} → ୧୨୩୪ metres (୪୦୪୯ ft)
  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft|comma=5}} → ୧,୨୩୪,୫୬୭ metres (୪,୦୫୦,୪୧୭ ft)
  • {{convert|1234|m|ft|comma=gaps5}}୨୩୪ metres (୦୪୯ ft)%s%s
  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft|comma=gaps5}}୨୩୪୫୬୭ metres (୦୫୦୪୧୭ ft)%s%s

Output manipulation[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

Brackets and separators: 10 m [33 ft][ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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

{{convert|10|m|ft}} → ୧୦ metres (୩୩ ft)—( ) brackets are the default
{{convert|10|m|ft|disp=sqbr}} → ୧୦ metres [୩୩ ft]
{{convert|10|m|ft|disp=comma}} → ୧୦ metres, ୩୩ ft
{{convert|10|m|ft|disp=or}} → ୧୦ metres or ୩୩ feet

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

{{convert|10|m|ft|disp=br}} → ୧୦ metres
୩୩ feet

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

{{convert|10|m|ft|disp=br()}} → ୧୦ metres
(୩୩ feet)

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

{{convert|10|m|ft|disp=x|_MyText_}} → ୧୦ metres_MyText_୩୩ ft—(To display spaces, use &nbsp;)

Flipping (reordering) the two measurements: ୧,୬୦୯.୩ metres (୧ ମାଇଲ)[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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

{{convert|1|mi|m}} → ୧ ମାଇଲ (୧,୬୦୯.୩ metres) (To compare, default)
{{convert|1|mi|m|order=flip}} → ୧,୬୦୯.୩ metres (୧ ମାଇଲ)

When converting to multiple units, the effect is:

{{convert|10|km|mi nmi|order=flip}} → ୬.୨୧୩୭ ମାଇଲ; ୫.୩୯୯୬ nautical ମାଇଲ (୧୦ କିଲୋମିଟର)
{{convert|10|km|nmi mi|order=flip}} → ୫.୩୯୯୬ nautical ମାଇଲ; ୬.୨୧୩୭ ମାଇଲ (୧୦ କିଲୋମିଟର)

Displaying parts of the result: ୨ (୧.୫)[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

It is possible to display only parts of the conversion result:

Setting |abbr=~ returns both name and symbol of the first (input) unit:

{{convert|2|kPa|psi|abbr=~}} → ୨ kilopascals [kPa] (୦.୨୯ psi)
A {{convert|2|kPa|psi|abbr=~|adj=on}} pressureA ୨-kilopascal [kPa] (୦.୨୯ psi) pressure

Table options[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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

Enforced line break[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

|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()
୧୦୦ କିଲୋମିଟର
୬୨ ମାଇଲ
୧୦୦ କିଲୋମିଟର
(୬୨ ମାଇଲ)

Table columns showing numbers only[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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;"|୧୦


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

{{convert|20|m|ft|disp=tablecen}} → style="text-align:center;"|୨୦


The units are added as a column header:

  m ft
|disp=table ୧୦ ୩୩
|disp=tablecen ୨୦ ୬୬
|disp=<other> (default) ୩୦ metres (୯୮ ft)


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 ୧୫  ୫୨
B ୧୫.୫ ୫୧
C ୧୬.୦ ୫୨.୫
D ୧୬ ୫୨

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 units[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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 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 "୫୫ nautical ମାଇଲ (୧୦୨ କି.ମି.; ୬୩ mi)".

'per' units: kg/hl[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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}} → ୧,୦୦୦ kilograms per hectolitre (୧୦୦ lb/imp gal)

Units of difference[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

When a number is the measurement for a difference, one conversion is done. Compare this to a range, when two conversions are done, and to a normal conversion.

{{convert|10|C}} → ୧୦ °C (୫୦ °F)
{{convert|10|C-change}} → ୧୦ °C (୧୮ °F)
{{convert|10-15|C}} → ୧୦–୧୫ °C (୫୦–୫୯ °F)
A rise of {{convert|10|C-change|F-change K-change}} → A rise of ୧୦ °C (୧୮ °F; ୧୦ K)

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

Multiple units: 1 ft 5 in[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

In input[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

Base document #Input multiples 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}} → ୧ yard ୨ feet ୩ inches (୧.୬୦ m)
  • {{convert|2|ft|3|in|cm}} → ୨ feet ୩ inches (୬୯ cm)
  • {{convert|1|lb|5|oz|g}} → ୧ pound ୫ ounces (୬୦୦ g)

In output[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

Available multiple-unit output options predefined, like ftin and ydftin. The full list is at #Output multiples.

  • {{convert|2|m|ftin}} → ୨ metres (୬ ft ୭ in)
  • {{convert|2|m|ft in}} → ୨ metres (୬.୬ ft; ୭୯ in)—using a space, returns the decimal point
  • {{convert|2|m}} → ୨ metres (୬ ft ୭ in)—the default

Currency per unit: $/mi, $/km[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

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

  • {{convert|10|$/mi|$/km}} → $୧୦ per ମାଇଲ ($୬.୨/କି.ମି.) Green tickY
You can set the unit in both values using |$=€:
  • {{convert|10|$/mi|$/km|$=€}} → €୧୦ per ମାଇଲ (€୬.୨/କି.ମି.)

You can not convert the currency. This outcome combination is not possible: $15 per mile (€8.6/km)
