# nm to mm

In this article, we’ll explain the easy and convenient way to convert nanometer to millimeter. Although, there are two ways to do that, first one is by using the formula and the second one is by using online converter. Here we’ll discuss formula method so that you’ll get your solution with ease.

## What is millimeter(mm)?

The millimeter, also known as the millimetre, is a metric unit of length equal to one thousandth of a metre, which is the SI base unit of length.

## What is nanometer(nm)?

The Nanometer/ nanometre is a metric length unit equal to one billionth (short scale) of a metre (0.000000001 m).

## How many nanometers in a millimeter?

The abbreviations established by the international system of units (SI) are nm and mm respectively. One nanometer is equal to 1 x 10-6 mm, which means that in 1 millimeter there are 1,000,000 nm.

## How do we convert nm to mm?

The method of conversion from nanometers to millimeters is very simple. An easy way to do nm to mm conversion is by dividing the nanometers (length) value by 1000000.

Let’s take a look at the formula and example:

**millimeters** = **nanometers** ÷ **1,000,000**

**Example** – How to convert 6,000,000 nanometers to millimeters? (using the formula above)

**Solution** : 6,000,000 nm to convert into mm

= (6,000,000 ÷ 1,000,000)

So, 6000000nm = 6 mm
