Centimeters to angstroms conversion factor and formulas

Formula

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

Multiplication

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

Division

Alternatively we can divide 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 centimeters to angstroms, divide centimeters by 0.
The formula is expressed as:
cm ÷ 0 = Å

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

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.

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.
