Convert Millimeters to Nanometers
Learn How to Convert Millimeters to Nanometers Using our Conversion Formula
Converting a millimeter length measurement to a nanometer measurement involves multiplying your length by the conversion ratio to find the result. A millimeter is equal to 1000000 nanometers, so to convert simply multiply by 1000000.
For example, 5mm = (5 × 1000000) = 5,000,000nm.
Our inch fraction calculator can add millimeters and nanometers together and it also automatically converts the results to both imperial and metric values.
Millimeters and nanometers are both units used to measure length. Learn more about length and find more length measurement conversion calculators. A millimeter is a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as mm, for example 1mm. 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.
Millimeter is spelled millimetre internationally, and it is equal in length to .1 centimeters, 1000 micrometers, or 5/127 inch. They are represented by the smallest ticks on most metric rulers. To get a reference point of the size, the thickness of a dime is 1.35mm.
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.
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.
