Nanometer and Meter

The nanometer and the meter are units of length in the International System of Units (SI). They are used to describe distances or sizes at different scales.

The meter

A meter (symbol: m) is the basic unit of length in the SI. It is defined as the distance that light travels in a vacuum in 1/299,792,458 of a second. The meter is often used to measure human scale objects and distances, such as the height of a person or the length of a room.

The nanometer

A nanometer (symbol: nm) is an SI unit of length, equal to one billionth of a meter (1 nm = 1 x 10^-9 m). The nanometer is mainly used in physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering to measure extremely small structures. For example, a single water molecule is about 0.28 nanometer in diameter, and a single silicon atom is about 0.11 nanometer in diameter.

Converting between meter and nanometer

The relationship between these two units is simple: 1 meter is equal to 1,000,000,000 nanometers. Therefore, to convert meters to nanometers, you multiply the number of meters by 1,000,000,000.

1 meter = 1,000,000,000 nanometers

To convert nanometers to meters, divide the number of nanometers by 1,000,000,000. This makes the conversion between these units simple and straightforward.

1 meter = 0.000000001 nanometer
