Question[edit]

This is a Q that actually applied to all similar chemistry-related Infoboxes.

Some express density as g/cm3 (liquid), and others as ([temp] °C, [pressure] kPa) g/L (gas).

Is this difference intentional, due to the difference in natural state? Accidental, based on differences in source material? Necessary? Important enough to even worry about?

It does make comparisons between two or more items more difficult.

[edit] OK, let's ignore this one. I did a more thorough examination of the format, by looking at more similar pages (something I should have done first!), and I see that they are consistent within the different states. Emily Litella strikes once again. (talk) 19:16, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
