Convert Nanometers to Centimeters
Learn How to Convert Nanometers to Centimeters Using our Conversion Formula
Converting a nanometer length measurement to a centimeter measurement involves multiplying your length by the conversion ratio to find the result. A nanometer is equal to 1.0E-7 centimeters, so to convert simply multiply by 1.0E-7.
For example, 5nm = (5 × 1.0E-7) = 5.0E-7cm.
Our inch fraction calculator can add nanometers and centimeters together and it also automatically converts the results to both imperial and metric values.
Nanometers and centimeters are both units used to measure length. Learn more about length and find more length measurement conversion calculators. A nanometer is a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as nm, for example 1nm. A centimeter is a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as cm, for example 1cm. 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.
Internationally the centimeter is actually spelled centimetre and it's equal to 10 millimeters, .01 meters, or .393701 inches. Metric rulers have 30cm and they are the larger measurement. A standard pencil is just about 1cm thick, and can be used to get a rough idea of the size of a centimeter.
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.
