### What is a Meter?

**Meter** (abbreviation, m), also spelled as Metre(Commonwealth spelling), is the base unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). The SI unit symbol is m.

In the imperial system, a meter is equal to about 3.2 feet or 3 feet 3 inches.

The metric system is the standard of measurement used nearly everywhere in the world except in the United States; thus, it is the primary measurement system for scientific studies. Today, only the United States, Burma, and Liberia use the imperial system, and all other countries use the metric system.

### 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 Meter to Nanometers?

To convert Meter to Nanometers, simply multiply the Meter value by 1000000000.

The formula used to calculate Meter to Nanometers -

**d**_{(m)} = **d**_{(nm)} * 1000000000

The distance *d* in Nanometers (nm) is equal to the distance *d* in Meters (m) multiplied by 1000000000.

### How many Nanometers in a Meter

In simple terms, 1 m is equal to 1000000000 nm.

The formula used is 1*1000000000 = 1000000000(nm)

### How many Meters in a Nanometer

1 Nanometer is equal to 1e-09 Meters. So we can also say that there are 1e-09 Meters in a Nanometer.
