## Unit Information

Mile
/mʌɪl/
Symbol: mi
Unit System: Imperial

### What is the Mile?

The mile is a unit of length in the imperial unit system with the symbol mi.

It was originally an English unit but was adopted by many countries who all had their own slight variation on definition. The English mile, however, is equal to 63,360 inches, 5280 ft or 1760 yards.

The UK still uses the mile on all roadway signs rather than the kilometre; its SI "equivalent". It used to have the symbol 'm' until SI was established and it was changed to avoid confusion with the unit metre.

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).
