## How to Convert Nanometers to Meters

Convert nanometers to meters with this simple formula:

Converting a nanometer length measurement to a meter measurement involves multiplying the length by the conversion ratio to find the result. One nanometer is equal to 1.0E-9 meters, so to convert simply multiply by 1.0E-9.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 nanometers to meters using the formula above.

Nanometers and meters are both units used to measure length.

Nanometers are a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as *nm*, for example 1 nm.
Meters are a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as *m*, for example 1 m.

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 meter is the primary unit of length in the metric system. It's equal to 100 centimeters or 39.37 inches.
Internationally it is actually spelled *metre*. It was first defined 1793 as ^{1}/_{10,000,000} the length from the equator to
the North Pole. The current definition of a meter, adopted
in 1983, is the distance light travels in ^{1}/_{299,792,458} seconds and was adopted to in 1983.

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.
