How to Convert Yards to Nanometers

To convert a yard measurement to a nanometer measurement, multiply the length by the conversion ratio.

Since one yard is equal to 914,400,000 nanometers, you can use this simple formula to convert:

nanometers = yards × 914,400,000

The length in nanometers is equal to the yards multiplied by 914,400,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 yards to nanometers using the formula above.
5 yd = (5 × 914,400,000) = 4,572,000,000 nm

How Many Nanometers Are in a Yard?

There are 914,400,000 nanometers in a yard, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 yd = 914,400,000 nm

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


The yard is a unit of length measurement equal to 3 feet or 36 inches. The international yard is legally defined to be equal to exactly 0.9144 meters.[1]

The yard is a US customary and imperial unit of length. Yards can be abbreviated as yd; for example, 1 yard can be written as 1 yd.


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.

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.
