## Unit Information

Kilometre
/ˈkɪləˌmiːtə,kɪˈlɒmɪtə/
Symbol: km
Unit System: SI

### What is the Kilometre?

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

A kilometre is equal to 1000m, 1094 yards and 0.621 miles.

Kilometres is used to measure road distances in the US, though the UK is still using the imperial "sister" miles.

Angstrom
/ˈaŋstrəm/
Symbol:
Unit System: Non-SI Metric

### What is the Angstrom?

The angstrom (or ångström) is a unit of length and is a non-SI but metric accepted unit with the symbol Å.

It is equal in length to one ten-billionth of a metre or 0.1 nanometres (0.1nm).

It is approximately the size of an atom and is mostly used to measure very small distances for example wavelengths of light.
