Template:Wp/mag/Val/units
Purpose
editSubtemplate for turning an easily typeable name for a unit into a proper scientific notation for the unit without a link to a page about the unit. See {{val/unitswithlink}} for a version that provides a link to the unit as well. If the template does not have an entry for the unit, it is returned "as is".
This template is used by {{val}} to translate the u and up arguments. When adding a unit of the type X/Y (eg. m/s), please consider adding a X·Y^{-1} version as well (and name it X*Y-1).
Arguments
edit- 1 = The easily typable name of the unit.
Examples
edit{{val/units|m/s}} |

{{val/units|m*s-1}} |

{{val/units|MeV}} |
→ | MeV |
{{val/units|kg}} |

{{val/units|whatever}} |

Notes
edit- This is a sub-template used by {{val}}. Please do not use this directly. Feel free to add new units if they are not implemented.
