Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is designed to provide easier-to-read unit conversions for endurance figures, which are often given as distance @ speed, by using Template:Convert for the unit conversions.

Usage[edit]

  • {{endurance|distance|from_unit1|to_unit1|speed|from_unit2|to_unit2|[optional note]}}

where:

Optional parameters[edit]

There are optional parameters that control the appearance of the output:

  • abbr: when abbr is set to "on", the input units are abbreviated, which can be useful within infoboxes; the output units are already abbreviated
  • sp: when sp is set to "us", the American spelling of metric units, i.e. meter vs. metre

(Both of these parameters behave the same as they do in Template:Convert

  • sep: a value in the parameter sep overrides the default @ symbol

Units supported[edit]

The template currently supports the following units (in any combination or conversion direction):

Examples[edit]

  • {{endurance|450|nmi|km|5|knots|km/h}} → 450 nautical miles @ 5 knots (830 km @ 9.3 km/h)
  • {{endurance|100|km|nmi|35|km/h|knots}} → 100 kilometres @ 35 kilometres per hour (54 nmi @ 19 kn)
Optional note
  • {{endurance|450|nmi|km|5|knots|km/h|submerged}} → 450 nautical miles @ 5 knots, submerged (830 km @ 9.3 km/h)
Abbreviated output
  • {{endurance|450|nmi|km|5|knots|km/h|abbr=on}} → 450 nmi @ 5 kn (830 km @ 9.3 km/h)
US spelling of metric units
  • {{endurance|100|km|nmi|35|km/h|knots|sp=us}} → 100 kilometers @ 35 kilometers per hour (54 nmi @ 19 kn)
Optional separator
  • {{endurance|2100|nmi|km|16|knots|km/h|sep=at}} → 2,100 nautical miles at 16 knots (3,900 km at 30 km/h)
