Nanometers to millimeters conversion factor and formulas

Formula

The conversion factor between nanometers and millimeters is 1,000,000. This represents the ratio of nanometers per one millimeter. To calculate the value in millimeters, we can either divide by the conversion factor or multiply by its inverse.

Division

To convert from nanometers to millimeters, divide nanometers by 1,000,000.
The formula is expressed as:
nm ÷ 1,000,000 = mm

Multiplication

Alternatively we can multiply by the inverse conversion factor to get the same result.
The inverse of 1,000,000 is 1/1,000,000 or 0. To convert from nanometers to millimeters, multiply nanometers by 0.
The formula is expressed as:
nm × 0 = mm

A conversion from nanometers to millimeters 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 millimeter is officially defined as one thousandth (1/1,000) of a meter. It is commonly used when measuring very short lengths. Internationally it is spelled 'millimetre' whereas the U.S. spells it 'millimeter'. The symbol for millimeters is mm.
