In this article, we’ll explain some key points about nm and cm and the method of conversion from nm(nanometer) to cm (centimeter).
What is a nanometer (nm)?
In the metric system, A nanometer is a unit of Length or Distance. The symbol for nanometer is nm. The International spelling for this unit is ‘nanometre’.
What is a centimeter (cm)?
In the metric system, A centimeter is a unit of Length or Distance. The symbol for centimeter is cm. The International spelling for this unit is ‘centimetre’.
What’s 1 nanometer in centimeters?
When we want to convert from nanometers to centimeters, divide the value in nanometers by 10000000.
As, 1 nm = 1/10000000 = 1/10000000 = 1e-7 cm.
In addition, you can multiply the value in nanometers by 1 × 10-7.
So, 1 nm = 1 × 1 × 10-7 = 1 × 10-7 cm.
How do we convert nanometers to centimeters?
If we want to convert a nanometer measurement to a centimeter measurement, then we need to divide the length by the conversion ratio.
Since, one centimeter is equal to 10,000,000 nanometers, you can use this simple formula to convert:
centimeters = nanometers ÷ 10,000,000
[The length in cm is equal to the nm divided by 10,000,000]
Let’s take an example to understand properly!
Problem: Convert 450,000 nanometers to centimeters?
Step 1 (Formula)
cm = nm ÷ 10,000,000
Step 2 (Put the Values)
= 450,000 ÷ 10,000,000
Step 3 (Result)
= 0.045 or 0.0449999… cm
Or we can say – 450,000 nanometers (nm) is equal to 0.0449999999999 centimeters (cm).
