Learn How to Convert Inches to Nanometers Using our Conversion Formula

Converting an inch length measurement to a nanometer measurement involves multiplying your length by the conversion ratio to find the result. An inch is equal to 25400000 nanometers, so to convert simply multiply by 25400000.

For example, 5" = (5 × 25400000) = 127,000,000nm.

Our inch fraction calculator can add inches and nanometers together and it also automatically converts the results to both imperial and metric values.

Inches and nanometers are both units used to measure length. Learn more about length and find more length measurement conversion calculators. An inch is an imperial measurement and can be abbreviated as in, for example 1in. A nanometer is a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as nm, for example 1nm. 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 actual length of an inch has varied becuase of variances of the length of a foot. Throughout history it has been equal to 1/12 - 1/16 of a foot, but there are now exactly 12 inches in a foot. In 1959 the world agreed to the exact length of the national yard, .9144 meters. As such a foot is equal to .3048 meters and an inch is equal to 2.54 centimeters.

A quarter is .955" in diameter, which is just smaller than 1"

The standard ruler has 12", and metric combinations have 30cm. Inches are also often measured using tape measures which commonly come in lengths from 6' - 35'. Other types of measuring devices include scales, calipers, measuring wheels, micrometers, yardsticks, and even lasers.

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.
