### What is a Centimeter?

A **Centimeter** (abbreviation, cm) is a unit for measuring length in the metric system of measurement. A Centimeter is equal to one hundredth of a metre (1/100).

The centimetre remains a practical unit of length for many everyday measurements of the length of objects and small distances.

A meter consists of 100 centimeters, a square meter consists of 10,000 square centimeters, and a cubic meter consists of 1,000,000 cubic centimeters.

### What is a Nanometer?

The **nanometre** (SI symbol: nm) or nanometer (American spelling) is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one billionth (short scale) of a meter (0.000000001 m).

The nanometre is often used to express dimensions on an atomic scale: the diameter of a helium atom, for example, is about 0.06 nm, and that of a ribosome is about 20 nm. The nanometre is also commonly used to specify the wavelength of electromagnetic radiation near the visible part of the spectrum: visible light ranges from around 400 to 700 nm.

### How to Convert Centimeter to Nanometers?

To convert Centimeter to Nanometers, simply multiply the Centimeter value by 10000000.

The formula used to calculate Centimeter to Nanometers -

**d**_{(cm)} = **d**_{(nm)} * 10000000

The distance *d* in Nanometers (nm) is equal to the distance *d* in Centimeters (cm) multiplied by 10000000.

### How many Nanometers in a Centimeter

In simple terms, 1 cm is equal to 10000000 nm.

The formula used is 1*10000000 = 10000000(nm)

### How many Centimeters in a Nanometer

1 Nanometer is equal to 1e-07 Centimeters. So we can also say that there are 1e-07 Centimeters in a Nanometer.
