## 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 × 10,000,000→ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

nm = cm ÷ 0.0000001→ 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 × 10,000,000 = 60,000,000 nm

nm = 6 cm ÷ 0.0000001 = 60,000,000 nm

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