# Convert Nanometers (nm) to Meters (m)

Please provide the values below to convert from Nanometer (nm) to Meters (m) and vice versa.

### 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.

### 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.

### How to Convert Nanometer to Meters?

To convert Nanometer to Meters, simply divide the Nanometer value by 1000000000.

The formula used to calculate Nanometer to Meters -

d(nm) = d(m) / 1000000000

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

### How many Meters in a Nanometer

In simple terms, 1 nm is equal to 1e-09 m.

The formula used is 1/1000000000 = 1e-09(m)

### How many Nanometers in a Meter

1 Meter is equal to 1000000000 Nanometers. So we can also say that there are 1000000000 Nanometers in a Meter.
