The Template:Convert/per is a variation of Template:Convert to handle per-unit conversions, such as counted items per metre.

Usage[edit]

The 1st parameter is the amount, but 2nd is the count-unit, followed by 3rd parameter as the base per-unit.

{{convert/per |45|people|sqmi|km2}} → 45 people per square mile (17 people/km2)

The output count-unit defaults to the same (parameter 2), else use "out=" to reword the count-unit, such as singular/plural or abbreviated. Examples:

  • {{convert/per |1|dog|sqmi|km2|out=dogs}} → 1 dog per square mile (0.39 dogs/km2)
  • {{convert/per |1|person|sqmi|km2|out=ppl}} → 1 person per square mile (0.39 ppl/km2)

In most cases, the count-unit will use the same word for both input and output, as defaulted.

Examples[edit]

Many options are allowed:

  • {{convert/per |27|deer|sqmi|km2|abbr=~}} → 27 deer/square mile (sq mi, 10 deer/km2)
  • {{convert/per |6|added|kg|lb|lk=out}} → 6 added per kilogram (2.7 added/lb)
  • ${{convert/per |8||lb|kg|disp=x| [$|]}} → $8 per pound [$18 /kg]
