## How to perform key conversions involving length measurements

The formulas for conversion are represented below:

### Centimeters to Nanometers Formula

nm = cm * 10000000

Example: 30 Centimeters in Nanometers:

nm = cm * 10000000

nm = 30 * 10000000

nm = 300.000.000

### Nanometers to Centimeters Formula

cm = nm / 10000000

Example: 1.5 Nanometers in Centimeters:

cm = nm / 10000000

cm = 1,5 / 10000000

cm = 1,5x10-7

## Frequently asked questions involving length and distance

### 1000 Centimeters are equal to how many Nanometers

Considering that 1 Centimeter is equivalent to 10,000,000 Nanometers, you can use a rule of three to obtain that 1000 Centimeters are equal to 1010 Nanometers.

>

1 cm - 10.000.000 nm

1000 cm - x

Apply the rule of three and get:

x cm = 10.000.000 x 1.000 nmcm

x = 10.000.000.000 nm

### 1000 Nanometers is equal to how many Centimeters?

If every 10,000,000 Nanometers we have 1 Centimeter, just divide the number of Nanometers (1000) by 10000000, so you will obtain that 1000 nm equals 0.0001 cm. Observe the calculation below:

cm = nm / 10.000.000

cm = 1000 / 10000000

cm = 0,0001
