## How many meters are in an angstrom?

There are 1×10-10 meters in one angstrom. An angstrom is 1.0E-08% of a meter. A meter is 999,999,999,900% longer than one angstrom.

## Angstroms to meters conversion factor and formulas

Formula

The conversion factor between angstroms and meters is 10,000,000,000. This represents the ratio of angstroms per one meter. To calculate the value in meters, we can either divide by the conversion factor or multiply by its inverse.

### Division

To convert from angstroms to meters, divide angstroms by 10,000,000,000.
The formula is expressed as:
Å ÷ 10,000,000,000 = m

### Multiplication

Alternatively we can multiply by the inverse conversion factor to get the same result.
The inverse of 10,000,000,000 is 1/10,000,000,000 or 0. To convert from angstroms to meters, multiply angstroms by 0.
The formula is expressed as:
Å × 0 = m

Converting angstroms to meters is a conversion between units from separate unit systems - angstroms are Scientific defined units while meters 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 �ngstrom. The angstrom is used by the scientific community for measurement at the atomic or molecular scale. The symbol for angstrom is Å.

SI Unit

The meter is the primary unit for measurement of length within the metric (SI) system of measure. It is officially defined as the distance which light travels in 1/299,792,458th of a second in a vacuum. Internationally the meter is usually spelled 'metre', however the prevalent spelling in the United States is 'meter'. Its symbol is the lower case letter m. The meter is the base unit for deriving all other SI units of length eg. kilometer (1,000 meters).

### Imperial/U.S.

• 1 Å = 6.214×10-14 mi
• 1 Å = 1.094×10-10 yd
• 1 Å = 3.281×10-10 ft
• 1 Å = 3.937×10-9 in
