[Edit template data]

Template parameters

This template prefers inline formatting of parameters.


Numerical value to format for display with the unit.

Unit abbreviationabbr

Case sensitive abbreviation of a unit of measure. If the abbreviation contains a forward slash "/" it may be replaced with the character "p".

m/s, mps, GHz, ppm, kg, m2, kWh

Usage[edit source]

  • With a formatted number: {{Unit|number|abbr}}
    • If a number is specified, it is formatted with a space " " as a thousands separator and a period "." as the decimal separator.
  • With unit abbreviation only: {{Unit|abbr}}

New units[edit source]

Recognized units are defined and documented in Module:Unit/data.

Examples[edit source]

Commonly used units.

{{Unit|1|m/s}} 1 m/s
{{Unit|mps}} m/s
