Template {{convert}} calculates a measurement value (number × unit) into the same measurement by a different unit, and then presents the results, formatted. The complete list of unit symbols recognized by the template is here.

For example:

{{convert|2|km|mi}} → 2 km (1,2 mi) (km entered, converted into miles)
{{convert|7|mi|km}} → 7 mi (11 km) (mi entered, converted into km)

Numbers can be rounded, units can be abbreviated into symbols:

{{convert|2|km|mi|2|abbr=on}} → 2 km (1,24 mi)
{{convert|7|mi|km|2|abbr=on}} → 7 mi (11,27 km)

Value ranges can be entered using |to|... or |-|...:

{{convert|2|to|5|km|mi}} → 2 to 5 km (1,2 to 3,1 mi)
{{convert|2|-|5|km|mi}} → 2—5 km (1,2—3,1 mi)

Combined effect example:

{{convert|2|-|5|km|mi|2|abbr=on}} → 2—5 km (1,24—3,11 mi)
{{convert|2|and|5|km|mi|sigfig=3|abbr=off}} → 2 and 5 kilometres (1,24 and 3,11 miles)

Units to convert[уреди извор]

Enter units to convert from into:

  • {{convert|1|lb|kg}} → 1 lb (0,45 kg)
SI units generally accept prefixes, like "m" for milli (10−3), and "M" for mega (106)
For "per" units, use "/" (slash): kg/ha (see § 'per' units: kg/ha and § Currency per unit: $/km)
For three-unit units, etc., see Категорија:Convert-like templates

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

By default, the first quantity shows the unit name, the second shows the symbol (or abbreviation):

  • {{convert|1|lb|kg}} → 1 lb (0,45 kg)

Using |abbr=in shows the symbol for first (left-hand side) unit, and the name instead of the symbol for the second unit:

  • {{convert|1|lb|kg|abbr=in}} → 1 lb (0,45 kilograms)

To abbreviate both or neither:

  • {{convert|1|lb|kg|abbr=on}} → 1 lb (0,45 kg)
  • {{convert|1|lb|kg|abbr=off}} → 1 pound (0,45 kilograms)

Convenience: {{cvt}} has |abbr=on by default[уреди извор]

Template {{cvt}} is the same as {{convert}}, except that it has |abbr=on as the default behavior. In {{cvt}}, all other options are available. So:

{{cvt|1|lb|kg}} → 1 lb (0,45 kg)

is equivalent to:

{{convert|1|lb|kg|abbr=on}} → 1 lb (0,45 kg)

Adjective: a 10-mile distance[уреди извор]

Use |adj=on to produce the adjectival (hyphenated) form:

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

Default behavior, for comparison:

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

|adj=on does not produce hyphens with unit symbols, as per Manual of Style:

  • A {{convert|9|in|cm|adj=on|abbr=on}} nail → A 9 in (23 cm) nail.

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

By definition, 100 ft equals 30,48 m. In practical use, it is common to round the calculated metric number. With that, there are several possibilities.

Default rounding[уреди извор]

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 digits, 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 ft (40 m)
{{convert|123|ft|m}} 123 ft (37 m) same output as with 0 (below)
{{convert|123|ft|m|0}} 123 ft (37 m)
{{convert|123|ft|m|1}} 123 ft (37,5 m)
{{convert|123|ft|m|2}} 123 ft (37,49 m) The more-exact value is 37.4904 m or so, which gets converted to 37 m if this parameter is not specified at all.
{{convert|500|ft|m|-1}} 500 ft (150 m)
{{convert|500|ft|m}} 500 ft (150 m) same output as with −1 (above), because the conversion factor is between 0.2 and 2 (hence, it should produce same double-zero precision (−2) as in the input value), but the conversion must produce two significant digits at a minimum (hence, a higher single-zero precision (−1) is used)
{{convert|500|ft|m|0}} 500 ft (152 m)
{{convert|500|ft|m|1}} 500 ft (152,4 m)
{{convert|500|ft|m|2}} 500 ft (152,40 m) exact value is 152.4 m
{{convert|500|ft|cm|-3}} 500 ft (15.000 cm)
{{convert|500|ft|cm}} 500 ft (15.000 cm) same output as with −3 (above), because the conversion factor is between 20 and 200 (hence, it should decrease input value's double-zero precision (−2) by 2), but the conversion must produce two significant digits at a minimum (hence, a higher triple-zero precision (−3) is used)
{{convert|500|ft|cm|0}} 500 ft (15.240 cm)

Convert supports four types of rounding:

Round to a given precision: use a precision number[уреди извор]

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=[уреди извор]

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

  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=4}} → 1.200 ft (365,8 m)
  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=3}} → 1.200 ft (366 m)
  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=2}} → 1.200 ft (370 m)
  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=1}} → 1.200 ft (400 m)

Default behavior, for comparison:

  • {{convert|1200|ft|m}} → 1.200 ft (370 m)

Setting |sigfig= to a value less than 1 is meaningless:

  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=0}} → 1.200 ft (370 m) Red XN

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

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

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

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

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

Default behavior, for comparison:

  • {{convert|10|m|ft|sigfig=4}} → 10 m (32,81 ft)

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

  • {{convert|10 x 200 x 3000|m|ft}} → 10 m × 200 m × 3.000 m (33 ft × 656 ft × 9.843 ft)
  • {{convert|10 x 200 x 3000|m|ft|round=each}} → 10 m × 200 m × 3.000 m (33 ft × 660 ft × 9.800 ft)

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

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}} → 556 cm (218 78 in)
  • {{convert|8|cm|in|frac=4}} → 8 cm (3 14 in)

The fraction is reduced when possible:

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

Default behavior uses decimal notation:

  • {{convert|5.56|cm|in}} → 556 cm (219 in)

Rounding temperatures: °C, °F and K[уреди извор]

In temperatures, the conversion will be rounded either to the 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}} → 10,000 °C (50,000 °F; 283,150 K)
  2. {{convert|10,000.1|C|F K}} → 10,0001 °C (50,0002 °F; 283,1501 K)
  3. {{convert|-272|C|F K}} → −272 °C (−457,60 °F; 1,15 K)
  4. {{convert|-272|C}} → −272 °C (−457,60 °F)
  5. {{convert|100|C|F K}} → 100 °C (212 °F; 373 K)
  6. {{convert|0|C|F K}} → 0 °C (32 °F; 273 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 01 degree Celsius change is a 1,8 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}} → 10.000 °C (18.032 °F)

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

{{convert|10000|C|0}} → 10.000 °C (18.032 °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 five significant output digits because of the two digits 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.

Rounding input[уреди извор]

There is limited support for rounding the displayed input number. The rounding takes place after conversion, so the output is based on the full-precision input. This is useful when the input is produced by {{#expr:}} or otherwise available to a higher precision than is usefully displayed, and it's desirable to avoid double-rounding.

To round the input to a specified number of digits after the decimal point, use one of the parameters:

  • |adj=ri0
  • |adj=ri1
  • |adj=ri2
  • |adj=ri3

Note that there is no |adj=ri-1Red XN or similar for rounding above the decimal place. Neither is there support for significant figures, multiples of 5, or any other output-rounding feature.

The default precision is computed based on the input, so an explicit output precision must usually be supplied:

  • {{convert|4.14159|mi|km|adj=ri0}} → 414.159 mi (666.524 km) Red XN (precisions are mismatched)
  • {{convert|4.14159|mi|km|0|adj=ri0}} → 414.159 mi (666.524 km) Зелена квачицаД

In this case, if the input were rounded before conversion, a different result would be obtained:

  • {{convert|{{#expr:4.14159 round 0}}|mi|km|0}} → 4 mi (6 km) Red XN (rounds intermediate calculation, giving a different result)

Into multiple units: 10 °C (50 °F; 283 K)[уреди извор]

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 km (3,1 mi; 2,7 nmi)

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

Ranges of values[уреди извор]

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)[уреди извор]

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

Multiple dimensions: 6 m × 12 m (20 ft × 39 ft)[уреди извор]

Use by:

  • {{convert|6|by|12|ft|m}} → 6 by 12 ft (1,8 by 3,7 m)

Use ×, multiplication sign, or x, letter:

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

Lists of values: 20, 40, or 60 miles[уреди извор]

{{convert|20|,|40|, or|60|mi}} → 20, 40, or 60 mi (32, 64, or 97 km)

About feet, inch in ranges and multiples[уреди извор]

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

Default behavior, for comparison:

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

However, converting metric units into feet and inches with |order=flip can produce the desired output:

  • {{convert|380|x|1040|mm|ftin|order=flip}} → 1 ft 3 in × 3 ft 5 in (380 mm × 1.040 mm)

Words[уреди извор]

Spelling of unit name: international metre or US meter?[уреди извор]

Default spelling of units is in the en (generic) locale. To show en-US spelling, use |sp=us:

{{convert|1|m|ft}} → 1 m (3,3 ft)—default
{{convert|1|m|ft|sp=us}} → 1 m (3,3 ft)

Spell out numbers: ten miles[уреди извор]

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

  • {{convert|10|mi|m|spell=in}} → ten mi (16.000 m)

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

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

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

  • {{convert|10|mi|m|spell=In}} → Ten mi (16.000 m)
  • {{convert|10|mi|m|spell=On}} → Ten miles (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 miles (sixteen thousand meters)

Inserted before units: 4 planted acres[уреди извор]

  • {{convert|4|acre||adj=pre|planted}} → 4 planted acres (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 acres (1,6 planted ha)
  • {{convert|4|acre||disp=preunit|planted |reforested-}} → 4 planted acres (1,6 reforested-ha)

After adjective unit: A 10 ft-long corridor[уреди извор]

Note that two units (in this case, ft and m) are required. Use with just one unit will generate an error message.

{{convert|10|ft|m|adj=mid|-long}} → 10 ft-long (3,0 m)

Plurals: 1 inch, 2 inches[уреди извор]

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

  • {{convert|1|metre}} → 1 m (3 ft 3 in)
  • {{convert|2|metre}} → 2 m (6 ft 7 in)
  • {{convert|2|metre|abbr=on}} → 2 m (6 ft 7 in)

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

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

Fractions: one-eighth of an imperial pint[уреди извор]

The convert template also supports spelling out fractions.

  • {{convert|3+1/2|oz|g|spell=in}} → three and a half oz (99 g)

Any additional words needed for the fraction can also be added at the end of the template.

  • {{convert|1/8|imppt|ml|spell=in|adj=pre|of an}} → one-eighth of an imp pt (71 ml)

Wrapping and line breaking[уреди извор]

See Help:Convert § Wrapping and line breaking

Spelling out "thousands", "millions", etc.[уреди извор]

Most unit codes accept a prefix of e3 (thousand) or e6 (million) or e9 (billion).

  • {{convert|100|e6mi|e6km}} → 100×10^6 mi (160×10^6 km)
  • {{convert|120|e6acre}} → 120×10^6 acres (490.000 km2)
  • {{convert|120|e6acre|e3km2}} → 120×10^6 acres (490×10^3 km2)

To display both input and output in scientific notation, use |abbr=on

  • {{convert|100|e6mi|e6km|abbr=on}} → 100×10^6 mi (160×10^6 km)

To spell out "thousands", "millions", etc., |abbr=unit abbreviates the unit; |abbr=off displays both full unit names.

  • {{convert|100|e6mi|e6km|abbr=unit}} → 100 million mi (160 million km)
  • {{convert|100|e6mi|e6km|abbr=off}} → 100 million miles (160 million kilometres)

Units can have an SI prefix like G before the unit: Gm, and giga before the name: gigametre. These are plain multiplication factors.

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

  • 12 Gm (1,2×1010 m)
  • 12 µm (1,2×10−5 m)

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

  • {{convert|12|Gm|mi|abbr=on}} → 12 Gm (7.500.000 mi)
  • Mm: 12 Mm (7.500 mi)
  • km: 12 km (39.000 ft)
  • mm: 12 mm (0,47 in)
  • μm: 12 µm (0,012 mm)
  • um: 12 µm (0,012 mm) (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 mi (19 Mm)
  • {{convert|12|in|μm|abbr=on}} → 12 in (300.000 µm)

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

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

Engineering notation: 7 × 106 m[уреди извор]

In the unit: e6m[уреди извор]

Engineering notation can be entered as a "prefix" to the unit:

  • {{convert|70|e6m}} → 70×10^6 m (230.000.000 ft)

The same is possible for the output unit:

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[уреди извор]

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}} → 123×10−15 atm (1,23×10−13 atm)
  • {{convert|0.00000005|atm|atm|abbr=on}} → 000.000.005 atm (5,0 atm)

Input with fractions: 1 12 in (38,1 mm)[уреди извор]

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

  • {{convert|1/2|in|mm|1}}12 in (12,7 mm)
  • {{convert|1⁄2|in|mm|1}}12 in (12,7 mm)

With positive mixed numbers (a positive integer and a fraction), use a + sign

  • {{convert|2+1⁄2|in|mm|1}}2 12 in (63,5 mm)

With negative mixed numbers, use a hyphen - and repeat it:

  • {{convert|-2-1⁄2|in|mm|1}}−2 12 in (−63,5 mm)

Note that the following cases are not interpreted as mixed numbers:

Horizontal fraction bar: 1/2 inch[уреди извор]

Using a double slash (//) provides a horizontal fraction bar for the original (input) unit:

  • {{convert|1//2|in|mm|1}}1/2 in (12,7 mm)
  • {{convert|6+3//8|in|mm|1}}6 3/8 in (161,9 mm)

Using a negative value for |frac= provides a horizontal fraction bar for the converted (output) unit:

  • {{convert|12.7|mm|frac=-2}} → 127 mm (5 in)
  • {{convert|161.9|mm|frac=-8}} → 1.619 mm (63 3/4 in)

Thousands separator: 1,000 mi or 1000 mi[уреди извор]

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:

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

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

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

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

Default behavior, for comparison:

  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft}} → 1.234.567 m (4.050.417 ft)

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

  • {{convert|1234|m|ft|comma=5}} → 1234 m (4049 ft)
  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft|comma=5}} → 1.234.567 m (4.050.417 ft)

Default behavior, for comparison:

  • {{convert|1234|m|ft}} → 1.234 m (4.049 ft)

Output manipulation[уреди извор]

Brackets and separators: 10 m [33 ft][уреди извор]

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

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

Default behavior, for comparison:

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • {{convert|10|m|ft|disp=x|_MyText_}} → 10 m_MyText_33 ft (To display spaces, use &nbsp;)

Flipping (reordering) the two measurements: 1.609,3 metres (1 mile)[уреди извор]

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

  • {{convert|1|mi|m|order=flip}} → 1.609,3 metres (1 mile)

Default behavior, for comparison:

  • {{convert|1|mi|m}} → 1 mile (1.609,3 metres)

When converting to multiple units, the effect is:

  • {{convert|10|km|mi nmi|order=flip}} → 6,2137 miles; 5,3996 nautical miles (10 kilometres)
  • {{convert|10|km|nmi mi|order=flip}} → 5,3996 nautical miles; 6,2137 miles (10 kilometres)

Fixed ordering of output units: 212 °F (100 °C; 373 K)[уреди извор]

Setting |order=out shows the output-units as ordered; the input unit is skipped:

  • {{convert|100|C|F C K|abbr=on|order=out}} → 212 °F (100 °C; 373 K)
  • {{convert|200|PS|kW hp|0|abbr=on|order=out}} → 147 kW (197 КС)

Displaying parts of the result: 2 (1,5)[уреди извор]

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

  • {{convert|2|kPa|psi|abbr=~}} → 2 kPa [kPa] (0,29 psi)
  • A {{convert|2|kPa|psi|abbr=~|adj=on}} pressureA 2 kPa [kPa] (0,29 psi) pressure

Table options[уреди извор]

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[уреди извор]

|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 km
62 mi
100 km
(62 mi)

Table columns[уреди извор]

Using {convert} in a table cell, with |disp=table splits the result over two (or more) columns. By default units are not included in the table, however, they can be added using the |abbr= parameter. Multiple-unit outputs, like ftin, always output their units to the table.


style="text-align:right;"|10 |style="text-align:right;"|33

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


style="text-align:center;"|20 |style="text-align:center;"|66

The units are added as a column header:

  kilograms pounds stone and pounds
|disp=table 10 22 1 st 8 lb
|disp=table and |abbr=on 20 kg 44 lb 3 st 2 lb
|disp=table and |abbr=off 30 kilograms 66 pounds 4 stone 10 pounds
|disp=tablecen 40 88 6 st 4 lb
|disp=<other> (default) 50 kg (110 lb; 7 st 12 lb)

Sorting[уреди извор]

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 data-sort-value="7001100000000000000♠"></span>10 metres (33 ft)
showing: 10 m (33 ft).

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

m m ft
A 15,75 m 15 34 52
B 15,5 m 155 509
C 16 m 160 520
D 16 m 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.

Units[уреди извор]

The conversion factors and physical constants are sourced here.

All units[уреди извор]

The table below lists units supported by {{convert}}. More complete lists are linked for each dimension. For a complete list of all dimensions, see full list of units.

{{Convert}} uses unit-codes, which are similar to, but not necessarily exactly the same as, the usual written abbreviation for a given unit. These unit-codes are displayed in column 3 of the following tables. These are accepted as input by {{convert}} as the second and third unnamed parameters:

  • {{convert|100|kg|lb}} → 100 kg (220 lb)
  • {{convert|100|lb|kg}} → 100 lb (45 kg)

The unit-codes should be treated as case-sensitive:

  • {{convert|100|Mm|mm}} → 100 Mm (1,0×1011 mm)

The output of {{convert}} can display multiple converted units, if further unit-codes are specified after the second unnamed parameter (without the pipe separator). Typical combination output units are listed below in column 7.

  • {{convert|55|nmi|km mi}} → 55 nmi (102 km; 63 mi)
  • {{convert|1|oz|ozt g gr}} → 1 oz (0,91 ozt; 28 g; 440 gr)

Some units have alternative unit-codes. These are shown in brackets in column 3, e.g. °F (F). Either may be entered for Fahrenheit (but not a lower-case f).

'per' units: kg/ha, miles per gallon[уреди извор]

When using a slash (/), a unit like kg/hl is recognized as kilograms per hectare and will be converted in to other mass/area units. A unit in the numerator is not required.

  • {{convert|1000|kg/ha}} → 1.000 kg/ha (890 lb/acre)
  • {{convert|350|/in2}} → 350/in2 (54/cm2)

Population density (inhabitants per square mile) can be converted using

  • {{convert|10|PD/sqmi|PD/km2}} → 10/sq mi (3,9/km2)

Vehicular fuel efficiency, commonly expressed in miles per gallon or litres per 100 km can also be converted

  • {{convert|26|mpgUS|l/100km mpgimp}} → 26 mpg‑US (9,0 l/100 km; 31 mpg‑imp)

Units of difference: Expressing a change or difference in temperature[уреди извор]

We have already discussed standard temperature conversions (°C, °F, K), as shown in these two examples:

When expressing a temperature change (e.g., "The temperature increased by 10 °C"), or when comparing temperatures (e.g., "10 to 15 °C warmer"), we cannot use the standard temperature units (|C, |F and |K), which refer to points on the respective scale. Instead, we must use one of the following "units of difference": |C-change, |F-change and |K-change.

Compare the following two examples with the two above:

To produce multiple units in the output:

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

Multiple units: 1 ft 5 in[уреди извор]

In input[уреди извор]

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}} → 1 yd 2 ft 3 in (1,60 m)
  • {{convert|2|ft|3|in|cm}} → 2 ft 3 in (69 cm)
  • {{convert|1|lb|5|oz|g}} → 1 lb 5 oz (600 g)

In output[уреди извор]

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

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

Default behavior, for comparison:

  • {{convert|2|m}} → 2 m (6 ft 7 in)

See also:

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

Currency per unit: $/mi → $/km[уреди извор]

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

  • {{convert|10|$/mi|$/km}} → $10/mi ($6,2/km)
  • {{convert|1500|$/ozt|$/g}} → $1.500/ozt ($48/g)

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

  • {{convert|10|$/mi|$/km|$=€}} → €10/mi (€6,2/km)

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

Using convert inside templates[уреди извор]

For usage in template code, like infoboxes, {{Convert}} has these options:

Pre-formatting fraction input
Your template can accept |input=16 7/8 and use {{#invoke:Convert/helper|number|16 7/8}} → 16+7/8
Using a Wikidata property
  • Adding the Wikidata property code, like code |input=P2073, to your template code automatically returns the Wikidata property for that article, and convert it. Both number and unit are read.

Note: to return that property value for an other article, use |qid=.

Example for домет (P2073): Note: this example uses |qid=Q1056131 (testing for Cessna 208 Caravan (Q1056131))

  • {{convert|input=P2073|qid=Q1056131|ftin|abbr=on}} → 1.500 mi (7.920.000 ft 0 in)
  • {{convert|input=P2073|qid=Q1056131|km|abbr=on}} → 1.500 mi (2.400 km)
  • {{convert|input=P2073|qid=Q1056131|km|abbr=on|disp=out}} → 2.400 km
For example see template:Infobox Telescope.

Sometimes a property may have more than one value against it in Wikidata. You can use the |qual= parameter to specify which of the values you want to use.

Example for пречник (P2386): Note: this example uses |qid=Q1513315 (testing for South Pole Telescope (Q1513315))
