## How many centimeters are in a nanometer?

There are 1×10-7 centimeters in one nanometer. A nanometer is 1.0E-05% of a centimeter. A centimeter is 999,999,900% longer than one nanometer.

## Nanometers to centimeters conversion factor and formulas

Formula

The conversion factor between nanometers and centimeters is 10,000,000. This represents the ratio of nanometers 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 nanometers to centimeters, divide nanometers by 10,000,000.
The formula is expressed as:
nm ÷ 10,000,000 = cm

### Multiplication

Alternatively we can multiply 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 nanometers to centimeters, multiply nanometers by 0.
The formula is expressed as:
nm × 0 = cm

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

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.

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.
