Formula
nm = fm / 1000000
Quick Rough Maths
To get the Nanometres, divide the number of Fermis by 1000 thousand
Fermis (fm) in 1 Nanometre
There are 1000000 Fermis in 1 Nanometre
Nanometres (nm) in 1 Fermi
There are 0 Nanometres in 1 Fermi

## 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.

Nanometre
/ˈnanə(ʊ)ˌmiːtə/
Symbol: nm
Unit System: SI

### What is the Nanometre?

The nanometre is a unit of length and is a multiple of the SI unit metre. It uses the symbol nm.

1 nm is equal to one one-billionth of a metre. (Nano is the prefix for one billionth). It is used to express dimensions on an atomic scale for example a helium atom has a radius of approximately 0.03nm.

The nanometre was previously known as the millimicrometre (or the millimicron).
