## Unit Information

Fermi
/ˈfəːmi/
Symbol: fm
Unit System: Non-SI metric

### What is the Fermi?

The fermis is a unit of length in the non-SI metric system and uses the symbol fm.

One fermi is equal to 1×10−15m or 3.9370×10−14 in.

It is used to measure nuclear distances and was named after the Italian physicist Enrico Fermi (1901–1954). It has now been replaced with the SI-derived term femtometre.

Centimetre
/ˈsɛntɪmiːtə/
Symbol: cm
Unit System: SI

### What is the Centimetre?

The centimetre is a unit of length and is a multiple of the metre; an SI derived unit. It has the symbol cm.

A centimetre is equal to 0.01m. It is also ≈ 0.3937in.

Centimetres are used in maps to scale up conversions to real world measurements.
