## How many centimeters are in an angstrom?

There are 1×10-8 centimeters in one angstrom. An angstrom is 1.0E-06% of a centimeter. A centimeter is 9,999,999,900% longer than one angstrom.

## Angstroms to centimeters conversion factor and formulas

Formula

The conversion factor between angstroms and centimeters is 100,000,000. This represents the ratio of angstroms per one centimeter. To calculate the value in centimeters, we can either divide by the conversion factor or multiply by its inverse.

### Division

To convert from angstroms to centimeters, divide angstroms by 100,000,000.
The formula is expressed as:
Å ÷ 100,000,000 = cm

### Multiplication

Alternatively we can multiply by the inverse conversion factor to get the same result.
The inverse of 100,000,000 is 1/100,000,000 or 0. To convert from angstroms to centimeters, multiply angstroms by 0.
The formula is expressed as:
Å × 0 = cm

Converting angstroms to centimeters is a conversion between units from separate unit systems - angstroms are Scientific defined units while centimeters are metric (SI) .

Scientific Unit

The angstrom is a measure of length defined as one ten billionth (1/10,000,000,000) of a meter or a ten millionth (1/10,000,000) of a millimeter. While it is based on the meter, it is not officially part of the SI metric system. The unit is named after Swedish physicist Jonas Ångstrom. The angstrom is used by the scientific community for measurement at the atomic or molecular scale. The symbol for angstrom is Å.

SI Unit

Within the SI (metric) system of measurement, the centimeter is officially defined as one hundredth (1/100) of a meter. It is commonly used as measurement from shorter lengths. Internationally it is spelled 'centimetre' whereas the U.S. spells it 'centimeter'. The symbol for centimeters is cm.
