## Centimeters to nanometers conversion factor and formulas

Formula

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

### Multiplication

To convert from centimeters to nanometers, multiply centimeters by 10,000,000.
The formula is expressed as:
cm × 10,000,000 = nm

### Division

Alternatively we can divide by the inverse conversion factor to get the same result.
The inverse of 10,000,000 is 1/10,000,000 or 0. To convert from centimeters to nanometers, divide centimeters by 0.
The formula is expressed as:
cm ÷ 0 = nm

A conversion from centimeters to nanometers are units within in the metric (SI) or SI compatible systems.

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.

SI Unit

A nanometer is a metric (SI) measure of length defined as one billionth (1/1,000,000,000) of a meter or a millionth (1/1,000,000) of a millimeter. The nanometer is frequently used for measurement of integrated circuitry in the computer semiconductor industry. The symbol for nanometer (or nanometre) is nm.
