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

Template {{convert}} calculates measurements from one unit (you can enter) to another one, and then presents the results. For example:

{{convert|2|km|mi}} → 2 kilometres (1.2 mi)
{{convert|7|mi|km}} → 7 miles (11 km)

The available units are listed below. Units are case-sensitive always (kW, not KW or kw). Multiple formatting and calculation options are listed below.

ਵਿਸ਼ਾ ਸੂਚੀ

Unit name or symbol (abbreviation): 1 pound or 1 lb?[ਸੋਧੋ]

By default, the first value shows unit name spelled out, the second the symbol (or abbreviation). Use |abbr=on/off to change this behaviour:

  • {{convert|1|lb|kg}} → 1 pound (0.45 kg)

To abbreviate both:

  • {{convert|1|lb|kg|abbr=on}} → 1 lb (0.45 kg)
  • {{convert|1|lb|kg|abbr=off}} → 1 pound (0.45 kilograms)

|abbr=in is the reverse behaviour to the default, |abbr=out:

  • {{convert|1|lb|kg|abbr=in}} → 1 lb (0.45 kilograms)

Convenience: {{cvt}} has |abbr=on by default[ਸੋਧੋ]

Template {{cvt}} is similar to {{convert}}, but has |abbr=on as the default behaviour. In {{cvt}}, all other options are available. So:

{{cvt|1|lb|kg}} → 1 lb (0.45 kg)

is equal to:

{{convert|1|lb|kg|abbr=on}} → 1 lb (0.45 kg)

Adjective: a 10-mile distance[ਸੋਧੋ]

Use |adj=on to produce the adjective form:

  • A {{convert|10|mi|km|adj=on}} distance → A 10-mile (16 km) distance.

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|10|mi|km}} to go → 10 miles (16 km) to go.

This option does not work with |abbr=on.

Rounding: 100 ft is 30 m or 30.5 m or 30.48 m?[ਸੋਧੋ]

By definition, 100 ft equals 30.48 m. In practical use, it is common to round the calculated metric number. With that, there are several possibilities.

Default rounding[ਸੋਧੋ]

By {{Convert}} default, the conversion result will be rounded either to precision comparable to that of the input value (the number of digits after the decimal point—or the negative of the number of non-significant zeroes before the point—is increased by one if the conversion is a multiplication by a number between 0.02 and 0.2, remains the same if the factor is between 0.2 and 2, is decreased by 1 if it is between 2 and 20, and so on) or to two significant figures, whichever is more precise. An exception to this is rounding temperatures (see below).

Examples of rounding
Input Displays as Note
{{convert|123|ft|m|-1}} 123 feet (40 m)
{{convert|123|ft|m|0}} 123 feet (37 m)
{{convert|123|ft|m|1}} 123 feet (37.5 m)
{{convert|550|ft|m|0}} 550 feet (168 m) Approximate value is 167.64 m
{{convert|550|ft|m}} 550 feet (170 m) Rounds to 170, when approximate value is 167.64 m
{{convert|500|ft|m|0}} 500 feet (152 m) Approximate value is 152.4 m
{{convert|500|ft|m}} 500 feet (150 m) Rounds to 150, when approximate value is 152.4 m

Convert supports four types of rounding:

Round to a given precision: use a precision number[ਸੋਧੋ]

Specify the desired precision with the fourth unnamed parameter (or third unnamed parameter if the "convert to" parameter is omitted; or fifth unnamed parameter if a range is specified; or fourth unnamed parameter again if a range is specified and the "convert to" parameter is omitted; needs to be replaced with a "precision" named parameter). The conversion is rounded off to the nearest multiple of 110 to the power of this number. For instance, if the result is 8621 and the round number is "-2", the result will be 8600. If the result is "234.0283043" and the round number is "0", the result will be 234.

Round to a given number of significant figures: |sigfig=[ਸੋਧੋ]

To specify the output number to be with n significant figures use |sigfig=<number>:

  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=4}} → 1,200 feet (365.8 m)
  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=3}} → 1,200 feet (366 m)
  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=2}} → 1,200 feet (370 m)
  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=1}} → 1,200 feet (400 m)

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|1200|ft|m}} → 1,200 feet (370 m)

Setting |sigfig= is meaningless

  • {{convert|1200|ft|m|sigfig=0}} → 1,200 feet (370 m)*

Round to a multiple of 5: 15, 20, 25, ...[ਸੋਧੋ]

Using |round=5 rounds the outcome to a multiple of 5.

  • {{convert|10|m|ft}} → 10 metres (33 ft)
  • {{convert|10|m|ft|round=5}} → 10 metres (35 ft)

Similar: using |round=25 rounds the outcome to a multiple of 25.

  • {{convert|10|m|ft}} → 10 metres (33 ft)
  • {{convert|10|m|ft|round=25}} → 10 metres (25 ft)

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|10|m|ft|sigfig=4}} → 10 metres (32.81 ft)

In a range, one can round each value individually to the default. Use |round=each:

  • {{convert|10 x 200 x 3000|m|ft}} → 10 by 200 by 3,000 metres (33 ft × 656 ft × 9,843 ft)
  • {{convert|10 x 200 x 3000|m|ft|round=each}} → 10 by 200 by 3,000 metres (33 ft × 660 ft × 9,800 ft)

Round to a multiple of a given fraction: 2 316 inch[ਸੋਧੋ]

Specify the desired denominator using |frac=<some positive integer>. (Denominator is the below-the-slash number, for example the 3 in 13).

  • {{convert|5.56|cm|in|frac=16}} → 5.56 centimetres (2 316 in)
  • {{convert|8|cm|in|frac=4}} → 8 centimetres (3 14 in)

The fraction is reduced when possible:

  • {{convert|8|cm|in|frac=100}} → 8 centimetres (3 320 in)

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|8|cm|in}} → 8 centimetres (3.150 in)

In temperatures: rounding °C, °F and K[ਸੋਧੋ]

In temperatures, the conversion will be rounded either to precision comparable to that of the input value or to that which would give three significant figures when expressed in kelvins, whichever is more precise.

  1. Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".
  2. Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".
  3. Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".
  4. Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".
  5. Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".
  6. Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".

The precision of the input number in example (1) is one digit, but the precision of its Kelvins expression is three, so the precision of the Fahrenheit conversion is made three (made 180...) . (1) and (2) seem to belie the fact that a 0.1 degrees Celsius change is a 0.18 degrees Fahrenheit change, and make the 32 degrees difference shown in (1) begin to seem off somehow. Result (1) seems off until you set the significant figures yourself with |sigfig=:

Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".

or you set the precision positionally, relative to the decimal point (zero being at the decimal point):

Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate".

The precision of the input number in example (2) is six, so the precision of the Fahrenheit output is, whereas before, Kelvins had determined it to be three. Examples (3) and (4) show how this can be hidden and generate questions, but it occurs there because the Kelvins conversion generated two fractional parts. (Before it was the input number that generated the fractional part.) In example (3) the three input digits converted into into five significant output digits because of the two numbers after the decimal point, generated by the Kelvins conversion. This happened again in (5), but in (6) decimal fractions were neither given as input nor induced by the Kelvins conversion.

Into multiple units: 10 °C (50 °F; 283 K)[ਸੋਧੋ]

Separate the multiple output units by a space:

  • {{convert|10|C|F K}} → 10 °C (50 °F; 283 K)
  • {{convert|5|km|mi nmi}} → 5 kilometres (3.1 mi; 2.7 nmi)

If the output unit names contain spaces, use + as the separator.

Ranges of values[ਸੋਧੋ]

A range converts two values and separates them by your choice of words and punctuation.

A range: 6 to 17 kg (13 to 37 lb)[ਸੋਧੋ]

Range indicators are entered as the second parameter (between the values). Range separators can be:

Multiple dimensions: 6 m × 12 m (20 ft × 39 ft)[ਸੋਧੋ]

Use by:

  • {{convert|6|by|12|ft|m}} → 6 by 12 feet (1.8 by 3.7 m)

Use ×, multiplication sign, or x, letter:

  • {{convert|6|x|12|m|ft}} → 6 by 12 metres (20 ft × 39 ft)

In science, the formal way is to set |x| and |abbr=on (keeping dimensions right, like in area = x km2):

  • {{convert|6|x|12|m|ft|abbr=on}} → 6 m × 12 m (20 ft × 39 ft)

About feet, inch in ranges and multiples[ਸੋਧੋ]

While it is possible to enter feet, inch in a simple conversion, this is not possible for ranges:

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|1|ft|3|in|mm}} → 1 foot 3 inches (380 mm)

Words[ਸੋਧੋ]

Spelling of unit name: UK metre or US meter?[ਸੋਧੋ]

Default spelling of units is en-UK. To show en-US spelling, use |sp=us:

{{convert|1|m|ft}} → 1 metre (3.3 ft)—default
{{convert|1|m|ft|sp=us}} → 1 meter (3.3 ft)

Spell out numbers: ten miles[ਸੋਧੋ]

To write a number in words, use |spell=in:

  • {{convert|10|mi|m|spell=in}} → ten miles (16,000 m)

To spell out both in and out values, use |spell=on:

  • {{convert|10|mi|m|spell=on}} → ten miles (sixteen thousand metres)

To make first letter a capital, use |spell=In, |spell=On

  • {{convert|10|mi|m|spell=In}} → Ten miles (16,000 m)
  • {{convert|10|mi|m|spell=On}} → Ten miles (sixteen thousand metres)

Remember that the spelling of the units (ft, m) is independently set by |abbr=. To the extreme:

  • {{convert|10|mi|m|spell=on|abbr=off|sp=us}} → ten miles (sixteen thousand meters)

Inserted before units: 4 planted acres[ਸੋਧੋ]

  • {{convert|4|acre||adj=pre|planted}} → 4 planted acres (1.6 ha)

disp=preunit is similar, but has no separator after the specified text, and can have different text for the output value:

  • {{convert|4|acre||disp=preunit|planted }} → 4 planted acres (1.6 planted ha)
  • {{convert|4|acre||disp=preunit|planted |reforested-}} → 4 planted acres (1.6 reforested-ha)

After adjective unit: A 10-foot-long corridor[ਸੋਧੋ]

{{convert|10|ft|m|adj=mid|-long}} → 10-foot-long (3.0 m)

Plurals: 1 inch, 2 inches[ਸੋਧੋ]

The unit symbol is singular always. Depending on the preceding number only, a unit name can be shown plural.

  • {{convert|1|metre}} → 1 metre (3 ft 3 in)
  • {{convert|2|metre}} → 2 metres (6 ft 7 in)
  • {{convert|2|metre|abbr=on}} → 2 m (6 ft 7 in)
Exception

Entering the unit spelled |foot| forces singular output "foot", whatever the number is.

  • {{convert|100|foot|abbr=off}} → 100 foot (30 metres)

Numbers[ਸੋਧੋ]

Using an SI prefix: gigameter (Gm), or micrometer (μm)[ਸੋਧੋ]

ਫਰਮਾ:Sidebar metric prefixes (small) Units can have an SI prefix like G before the unit: Gm, and giga before the name: gigameter. These are plain multiplication factors.

To illustrate, these are trivial calculations (from meter to meter), showing the multiplication factor:

  • 12 Gm (1.2×1010 m)
  • 12 μm (1.2×10−5 m)

The prefix can be added before the SI unit (here: unit m for meter):

  • {{convert|12|Gm|mi|abbr=on}} → 12 Gm (7,500,000 mi)
  • Mm: 12 Mm (7,500 mi)
  • km: 12 km (39,000 ft)
  • mm: 12 mm (0.47 in)
  • μm: 12 μm (0.012 mm)
  • um: 12 μm (0.012 mm) (letter "u" can be used for "μ" here)

The prefix can be used in the output unit:

  • {{convert|12000|mi|Mm|abbr=on}} → 12,000 mi (19 Mm)
  • {{convert|12|in|μm|abbr=on}} → 12 in (300,000 μm)

As an exception, the non-SI unit "inch" can have the "μ" prefix too)

  • {{convert|12|μm|μin|abbr=on}} → 12 μm (470 μin)

Engineering notation: 7 × 106 m[ਸੋਧੋ]

In the unit: e6m[ਸੋਧੋ]

Engineering number notations like 7E6 (for 7 × 106) can be entered as a "prefix" to the unit:

  • {{convert|7|e6m}} → 7 million metres (23,000,000 ft)

The same is possible for the output unit:

  • {{convert|23,000,000|ft|e6m}} → 23,000,000 feet (7.0×10^6 m)

Any standard unit (not a combination, multiple, or built-in unit) can have such a prefix:

  • e3 (thousand),
  • e6 (million),
  • e9 (billion),
  • e12 (trillion),
  • e15 (quadrillion).

Scientific notation: 1.23×10−14[ਸੋਧੋ]

In scientific notation, a number is written like 1.23×10−14. The plain number has exactly one digit before the decimal point.

With {{convert}}, the input can be in e-notation such as 12.3e4. This value is displayed as a power of ten, and the output is displayed in scientific notation, except that an output value satisfying 0.01 <= v < 1000 is shown as a normal number. In addition, if the output value is 1000 and sigfig=4 is used, the value is displayed as a normal number.

  • {{convert|12.3e-15|atm|atm|abbr=on}} → 12.3×10−15 atm (1.23×10−14 atm)
  • {{convert|0.00000005|atm|atm|abbr=on}} → 0.00000005 atm (5.0×10−8 atm)

Input with fractions: 1 12 inches (38.1 mm)[ਸੋਧੋ]

The number to convert can be written in fractions. Both / (keyboard slash) and (fraction slash) are accepted:

  • {{convert|1/2|in|mm|1}}12 inch (12.7 mm)
  • {{convert|1⁄2|in|mm|1}}12 inch (12.7 mm)

With integers, use a + sign

  • {{convert|2+1⁄2|in|mm|1}}2 12 inches (63.5 mm)

When negative, use a hyphen - and repeat it:

  • {{convert|-2-1⁄2|in|mm|1}}−2 12 inches (−63.5 mm)
  • {{convert|2-1⁄2|in|mm|1}} → 2–12 inch (50.8–12.7 mm) Note: this is read as a range
  • {{convert|-2+1⁄2|in|mm|1}}[convert: invalid number] ਫਰਮਾ:Nay Should be a number, not an expression (do not require a calculation)

Output with horizontal fraction bar in: 1/2 inch[ਸੋਧੋ]

Using a double slash (//) returns a horizontal bar fraction:

  • {{convert|1//2|in|mm|1}}1/2 inch (12.7 mm)
  • {{convert|2+1//2|in|mm|1}}2 1/2 inches (63.5 mm)

Thousands separator: 1,000 mi or 1000 mi[ਸੋਧੋ]

In input, a comma for thousands separator is accepted but not required; a gap (space) is not accepted. In output, by default, the thousand separator is the comma:

  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft}} → 1,234,567 metres (4,050,417 ft)
  • {{convert|1,234,567|m|ft}} → 1,234,567 metres (4,050,417 ft)
  • {{convert|1 234 567|m|ft}}[convert: invalid number] ਫਰਮਾ:Nay

Set |comma=off to remove the separator from the output:

  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft|comma=off}} → 1234567 metres (4050417 ft)

Use |comma=gaps to use digit grouping by gap (thin space) as a thousands separator:

  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft|comma=gaps}}1234567 metres (4050417 ft)

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft}} → 1,234,567 metres (4,050,417 ft)

Setting |comma=5 or |comma=gaps5 will only add the separator when the number of digits is 5 or more:

  • {{convert|1234|m|ft|comma=5}} → 1234 metres (4049 ft)
  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft|comma=5}} → 1,234,567 metres (4,050,417 ft)
  • {{convert|1234|m|ft|comma=gaps5}} → 1,234 metres (4,049 ft)*
  • {{convert|1234567|m|ft|comma=gaps5}} → 1,234,567 metres (4,050,417 ft)*

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|1234|m|ft}} → 1,234 metres (4,049 ft)

Output manipulation[ਸੋਧੋ]

Brackets and separators: 10 m [33 ft][ਸੋਧੋ]

Punctuation that distinguishes the two measurements is set by |disp=.
Options are: b (the default), sqbr, comma, or, br, x|…:

  • {{convert|10|m|ft|disp=sqbr}} → 10 metres [33 ft]
  • {{convert|10|m|ft|disp=comma}} → 10 metres, 33 ft
  • {{convert|10|m|ft|disp=or}} → 10 metres or 33 feet

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|10|m|ft}} → 10 metres (33 ft)

Setting |disp=br will force a new line (<br/>)

  • {{convert|10|m|ft|disp=br}} → 10 metres
    33 feet

Also |disp=br() will force a new line, and keep the brackets:

  • {{convert|10|m|ft|disp=br()}} → 10 metres
    (33 feet)

Setting |disp=x|… allows any text as separator:

  • {{convert|10|m|ft|disp=x|_MyText_}} → 10 metres_MyText_33 ft—(To display spaces, use &nbsp;)

Flipping (reordering) the two measurements: 1,609.3 metres (1 mile)[ਸੋਧੋ]

Setting |order=flip will flip (swap) the two measurements:

  • {{convert|1|mi|m|order=flip}} → 1,609.3 metres (1 mile)

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|1|mi|m}} → 1 mile (1,609.3 metres)

When converting to multiple units, the effect is:

  • {{convert|10|km|mi nmi|order=flip}} → 6.2137 miles; 5.3996 nautical miles (10 kilometres)
  • {{convert|10|km|nmi mi|order=flip}} → 5.3996 nautical miles; 6.2137 miles (10 kilometres)

Displaying parts of the result: 2 (1.5)[ਸੋਧੋ]

It is possible to display only parts of the conversion result:

Convert Output Description
{{convert|2|cuyd|m3}} 2 cubic yards (1.5 m3) Default behaviour, for comparison
{{convert|2|cuyd|m3|abbr=values}} 2 (1.5) Input and output numbers

{{convert|2|cuyd|m3|disp=unit|adj=on}} cubic-yard Input unit, adjective (hyphenated)
{{convert|2|cuyd|cuyd|0|disp=out|abbr=off}} 2 cubic yards Input (workaround)
{{convert|2|cuyd|m3|abbr=~}} 2 cubic yards [cu yd] (1.5 m3) Input: both name and symbol
{{convert|2|cuyd|m3|disp=unit2}} m3 Output unit (symbol)
{{convert|2|cuyd|m3|disp=unit2|abbr=off}} cubic metres Output unit (name)
{{convert|2|cuyd|m3|disp=number}} 1.5 Output value
{{convert|2|cuyd|m3|disp=out}} 1.5 m3 Output value and unit
{{convert|2|cuyd|m3|disp=out|abbr=off}} 1.5 cubic metres Output value and unit

Display both input name and symbol: 2 kilopascals [kPa][ਸੋਧੋ]

Setting |abbr=~ returns both name and symbol of the first (input) unit:

  • {{convert|2|kPa|psi|abbr=~}} → 2 kilopascals [kPa] (0.29 psi)
  • A {{convert|2|kPa|psi|abbr=~|adj=on}} pressureA 2-kilopascal [kPa] (0.29 psi) pressure

Table options[ਸੋਧੋ]

For the wikitable structure, there are three options: add a line-break, split the result over columns and make the table sortable.

Enforced line break[ਸੋਧੋ]

|disp=br adds a line-break and omits brackets.

|disp=br() adds a line-break and does add brackets to the converted value. This may be useful in tables:

|disp=br |disp=br()
100 kilometres
62 miles
100 kilometres
(62 miles)

Table columns showing numbers only[ਸੋਧੋ]

Using {convert} in a table cell, with |disp=table splits the result over two columns:

{{convert|10|m|ft|disp=table}} → style="text-align:right;"|10

|style="text-align:right;"|33

|disp=tablecen does the same, and also centers the text:

{{convert|20|m|ft|disp=tablecen}} → style="text-align:center;"|20

|style="text-align:center;"|66

The units are added as a column header:

  m ft
|disp=table 10 33
|disp=tablecen 20 66
|disp=<other> (default) 30 metres (98 ft)

Sorting[ਸੋਧੋ]

Use |sortable=on to include a hidden numerical sortkey in the output, suitable for use in a table with sortable columns. Technically, this places a hidden string before the actual displayed values:

{{convert|10|m|ft|sortable=on}} → <span style="display:none">7001100000000000000</span>10 metres (33&nbsp;ft)

Use both |disp=table and |sortable=on together to produce table columns (pipe symbols) for each value in sortable columns:

m ft

The generated sortkey is calculated in a consistent way based on both the value and its unit as passed to the convert template. In most cases convert uses the passed value converted to SI base units. It is therefore not necessarily the displayed value or other alternate units and is calculated regardless of output format options. Using different units or different order of units in individual rows should therefore not lead to incorrect sorting, although variations in rounding can give surprising results, since an unrounded number is used for the sortkey.

Units[ਸੋਧੋ]

All units[ਸੋਧੋ]

The table below lists units supported by this template. It is divided up according to the quantity being measured. Not all supported units are listed here; there are links to more complete lists for each quantity.

The codes listed in the code column (column 3) are accepted as input by the template. These can be used as the second or third unnamed parameter. For some units there exist alternative codes. These are listed in brackets and have been incorporated to make the code more flexible for editors, e.g. °F or F may be entered.

The codes listed in the combinations column (column 7) can be used to produce multiple conversions. They can only be used as the third unnamed parameter, e.g. {{Convert|55|nmi|km mi}} produces "55 nautical miles (102 km; 63 mi)".

'per' units: kg/hl[ਸੋਧੋ]

When using a slash (/), a unit like kg/hl is recognized as kilograms per hectolitre and will be converted with other mass/volume units.

  • {{convert|1000|kg/hl}} → 1,000 kilograms per hectolitre (100 lb/imp gal)

Units of difference: 10 °C higher; how much in °F[ਸੋਧੋ]

When a number is the measurement for a difference, one conversion is done. This may occur in temperatures (°C, °F, K). Compare this to a range, when two conversions are done.

The only available units of difference are: |C-change=, |F-change= and |K-change=.

  • Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate"., regular temperature
  • Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate"., difference (e.g., "The temperature changed from 30 into 40 °C")
  • Script error: No such module "DemoTemplate"., range (e.g., "The temperature is between 10 and 15 °C")

Consistently, into multiple units:

  • A rise of {{convert|10|C-change|F-change K-change}} → A rise of 10 °C (18 °F; 10 K)

Multiple units: 1 ft 5 in[ਸੋਧੋ]

In input[ਸੋਧੋ]

Base document ਫਰਮਾ:Slink lists options for multiple unit input (like ft,in). It can catch predefined sets only (units that can be subdivided; e.g., yd into ft):

  • {{convert|1|yd|2|ft|3|in}} → 1 yard 2 feet 3 inches (1.60 m)
  • {{convert|2|ft|3|in|cm}} → 2 feet 3 inches (69 cm)
  • {{convert|1|lb|5|oz|g}} → 1 pound 5 ounces (600 g)

In output[ਸੋਧੋ]

Available multiple-unit output options predefined, like ftin and ydftin. The full list is at ਫਰਮਾ:Slink.

  • {{convert|2|m|ftin}} → 2 metres (6 ft 7 in)
  • {{convert|2|m|ft in}} → 2 metres (6.6 ft; 79 in), using a space, returns the decimal point

Default behaviour, for comparison:

  • {{convert|2|m}} → 2 metres (6 ft 7 in)

  • {{hands}} a length used to measure horses
  • {{Long ton}} a weight in ton, cwt, qr and lb

Currency per unit: $/mi, €/km[ਸੋਧੋ]

Using currency symbols in a $ per unit value, you can convert the per-unit:

  • {{convert|10|$/mi|$/km}} → $10 per mile ($6.2/km)

You can set the currency in both values using |$=€:

  • {{convert|10|$/mi|$/km|$=€}} → €10 per mile (€6.2/km)

It is not possible to convert the currency. So, this result (mixed currencies) is not possible: $15 per mile (€8.6/km) ਫਰਮਾ:Nay
