## 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.

Point
/pɔɪnt/
Symbol: pt
Unit System: Typography

### What is the Point?

The point is a unit of length in the field of typography and uses the symbol pt.

It is the smallest unit in the world of typography. There are 12 points in a pica.

In physical printing methods / press systems, the point size is the height of the metal press body on which the font's letters are made. When applied to the digital type space, letters are designed around a theoretical size, an em square which is scaled to the relative point size (when specified of course!).
