How to Convert Feet to Nanometers

Tape measures can be used to measure units of length, and a calculator can be used to convert to another unit

Convert feet to nanometers with this simple formula:

nanometers = feet × 304,800,000

Converting a foot length measurement to a nanometer measurement involves multiplying the length by the conversion ratio to find the result. One foot is equal to 304,800,000 nanometers, so to convert simply multiply by 304,800,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 feet to nanometers using the formula above.
5' = (5 × 304,800,000) = 1,524,000,000 nm

Our inch fraction calculator can add feet and nanometers together and it also automatically converts the results to US customary, imperial and SI metric values.

Feet and nanometers are both units used to measure length. Learn more about length and find more length measurement conversion calculators. Feet are an imperial measurement and can be abbreviated as ft, for example 1 ft. Nanometers are a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as nm, for example 1 nm. Learn more about the metric system, including the common unit prefixes and how to convert between metric units.

A nanometer is an extremely small unit of length measurement, equal to one billionth of a meter. The nanometer is used to measure things that are very small, such as the transistors and electrical pathways in computer processors and nanotechnology. Internationally it is spelled nanometre.

The foot has been used throughout history to measure length but the actual length varied. In the US it has always been equal to 12 inches and 1/3 of a yard. The standard 12" ruler can be used to measure a foot. In 1959 the world agreed that the yard would be equal to .9144 meters, hence a foot is equal to .3048 meters. In some cases you may need a linear footage measurement, which is simply the value of a length in feet, learn more.

A typical ruler has 12 inches, equal to 1 foot.

We recommend using a ruler or tape measure for measuring length, which can be found at a local retailer or home center. Rulers are available in imperial, metric, or combination with both values, so make sure you get the correct type for your needs. If you need a ruler you can also download and print our free printable rulers which include both imperial and metric measurements.
