Posted by on .

is 1 nm is equal to 0.000000001?

how would you write 0.15 nm in standard form?

how would you write 565 nm in normal numbers?

how would you write 590 nm in normal numbers?

thanks

    Yes, 1 nm = 0.000000001 m

    As far as I know, all of the above are standard or normal form, using nm as the unit.

  • math - ,

    Here are some common metric prefixes, symbols and the corresponding multiplicative factors that may help you:

    tera (t)- 1,000,000,000
    mega (m) - 1,000,000
    kilo (k) - 1,000
    milli (m) - 1/1,000
    micro (μ) - 1/1,000,000
    nano (n) - 1/1,000,000,000

    For example,
    1 ns = 0.000 000 001 second
    1 mm = 0.001 metre
    1 mb = 1,000,000 bytes
    (note: sometimes mb is used to mean 1,048,576 bytes, equal to 220 bytes).

    for the last two questions i meant decimal form, im so confused

  • math - ,

    You probably meant in "decimal metres".

    565 nm = 0.000 000 565 metre

    Notice that I have used a "space" as a digital group separator. Depending on the context, a comma is more commonly used in U.S. while the space is recommended by the ISO.
