Centimeters (cm) to Nanometers (nm) Converter

This length unit converter dynamically calculates a value you enter in centimeters (cm) and converts it to its equivalent value in nanometers (nm).

How many centimeters (cm) are in a nanometer (nm)? What is the formula for how to convert centimeters to nanometers (cm to nm)?

1 centimeter (cm) = 10,000,000 nanometers (nm)
So we can say that there are 10,000,000 nanometers in 1 centimeter.
This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a centimeter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a nanometer unit of measurement is 10,000,000.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

1 nanometer (nm) = 0.0000001 centimeter (cm)
So we can say that there is 0.0000001 centimeter in 1 nanometer.
This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a centimeter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a nanometer unit of measurement is 0.0000001.

Knowing this inverse mathematical relationship between the two conversion factors and their reciprocal operations, we can derive two formulas to calculate and convert a quantity of length expressed in centimeters to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in nanometers (cm to nm). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

nm = cm ร— 10,000,000 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

nm = cm รท 0.0000001 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 6 centimeters that you want to convert to nanometers, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

nm = 6 cm ร— 10,000,000 = 60,000,000 nm
nm = 6 cm รท 0.0000001 = 60,000,000 nm

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 60,000,000 nanometers.

Centimeters to nanometers (cm to nm) conversion chart

To save you time and effort spent on having to perform manual calculations or look up conversion formulas every time a conversion from centimeters to nanometers is needed, here is a centimeters-to-nanometers conversion chart for your quick and easy reference. This conversion chart (or conversion table) shows common measurement values of length in centimeters and their equivalent measurement values in nanometers. These equivalent measurement values may be rounded off to 1 or 2 decimal places when it is mathematically expedient for everyday applications.

What is a centimeter (cm)?

Definition of centimeter: A centimeter is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI), commonly known as the metric system. It is equal to one hundredth of a meter (10^-2 m). It is often used for everyday measurements involving shorter distances than meters, such as human height.

The abbreviation for centimeter is cm. The single Unicode character ใŽ (U+339D) represents the 2-character Latin abbreviation for centimeter. The Windows Alt code for this character ใŽ is Alt + 13213.

What is a nanometer (nm)?

Definition of nanometer: A nanometer is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). It is equal to one billionth of a meter (10^-9 m). It is commonly used to express dimensions on an atomic scale, such as wavelengths of light, and in nanotechnologies.

The abbreviation for nanometer is nm. The single Unicode character ใŽš (U+339A) represents the 2-character Latin abbreviation for nanometer. The Windows Alt code for this character ใŽš is Alt + 13210.
