Is the following possible with full siunitx syntax?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{siunitx}

\begin{document}

$\SI{80}{\micro\meter}\times\SI{1.25}{mm}$

\end{document}

For clarification:

I guess there's a difference between the two following statements (maybe not?):

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{siunitx}

\begin{document}

$\SI{80}{\um}\times\SI{1.25}{\um}$
$\SI{80x1.25}{\um}$

\end{document}

What would be the equivalent for the statement above (with different units)?

    What do you mean by "full" syntax? And why mm and not \milli\meter in the second unit? May 8, 2014 at 15:52
  • Basically replacing the "\times" by some siunitx code. "mm" because it's shorter and I can't see a difference in the document (not relevant for question)

Here is how I would do it:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{siunitx}

\begin{document}

\noindent You can write ``\verb|\SI{80}{\um} \times \SI{1.25}{\mm}|'' and get the output
\begin{equation}
  \SI{80}{\um} \times \SI{1.25}{\mm}
\end{equation}
but it is not possible to write it with ``full \verb|siunitx| syntax'', as thew OP calls it. The reason for this is given by the author of the package, Joseph  Wright, in a comment to this post.

\end{document}

  • Thanks for showing the shortened versions for the units. Updated the question. Not related: Is there an automated way of including the rendered output into the post?

    @StefanKuczera No, and unlikely to be. Interface very hard to imagine, use case unclear, etc.

  • @JosephWright I assume that your answer is referring to my unrelated question in the comment above. As for my original question, Svend's answer is as good as it gets I guess.

    @SvendTveskæg, I do not iunderstand the frase it is not possible to write \SI{80 x 1.25}{\um}, that seems to compile just fine and gives the same result as in (1)

  • @daleif True! I forgot to get different units. I'll change my answer now. Thanks for pointing it out. May 14, 2014 at 11:45
