Template:Period

From LifeWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This template can be used to quickly and easily embed a link to the category of oscillators with a given period. For example,

The frobnozzle is a {{period|3}} [[oscillator]].

becomes

The frobnozzle is a period 3 oscillator.

(This is much more convenient than having to type the equivalent of

The frobnozzle is a [[period]] [[:Category:Oscillators with period 3|3]] [[oscillator]].

everytime you want to link to an oscillator period category.)

The template takes two parameters, the first of which is the period and can be passed without a name or as period=. The second one is passed without a name and removes the "period" from the resulting text:

The first known oscillators of periods {{period|37|brief}} and {{period|51|brief}} were found in 2009.

becomes

The first known oscillators of periods 37 and 51 were found in 2009.
