How to Convert Nanometers to Miles

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

To convert a nanometer measurement to a mile measurement, multiply the length by the conversion ratio. One nanometer is equal to 6.2137E-13 miles, so use this simple formula to convert:

miles = nanometers × 6.2137E-13

The length in miles is equal to the nanometers multiplied by 6.2137E-13.

For example, here's how to convert 5 nanometers to miles using the formula above.
5 nm = (5 × 6.2137E-13) = 3.1069E-12 mi

Nanometers and miles are both units used to measure length. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


One nanometer is equal to one-billionth (1/1,000,000,000) of a meter, which is defined as the distance light travels in a vacuum in a 1/299,792,458 second time interval.

The nanometer, or nanometre, is a multiple of the meter, which is the SI base unit for length. In the metric system, "nano" is the prefix for 10-9. Nanometers can be abbreviated as nm, for example 1 nanometer can be written as 1 nm.

The nanometer is an extremely small unit of length measurement, often used to measure things that are very small, such as the transistors and electrical pathways in computer processors and nanotechnology.


The mile is a linear measurement of length equal to exactly 1,609.344 meters. One mile is also equal to 5,280 feet or 1,760 yards.

The mile is a US customary and imperial unit of length. Miles can be abbreviated as mi, and are also sometimes abbreviated as m. For example, 1 mile can be written as 1 mi or 1 m.

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.
