Nanometer (nm) is a unit in the category of Length. It is also known as nanometers, nanometre, nanometres. This unit is commonly used in the SI unit system. Nanometer (nm) has a dimension of L where L is length. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit m by multiplying its value by a factor of 1E-009.
Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).

Other units in the category of Length include A.u. of Length (a.u., a0, b), Angstrom (Å), Arcmin (arcmin), Astronomical Unit (AU, UA), Attometer (am), Barleycorn (UK), Bohr (first Bohr Radius) (a0, b), Bolt (US Cloth), Button (UK) (line (UK)), Button (US) (line (US)), Cable Length (int.), Cable Length (UK), Cable Length (US), Caliber (centiinch) (caliber, cin), Centimeter (cm), Chain (engineer'S) (ch), Chain (Gunter'S) (ch), Chain (Ramsden'S) (ch), Chain (surveyor'S) (ch), Cubit (UK), Decameter (dam), Decimeter (dm), Electron Classical Radius (re), Ell, Ems (pica), Exameter (Em), Fathom (fath), Femtometer (fm), Fermi (F, f), First Bohr Radius (a0, b, a.u.), Foot (ft), French (fr), Furlong (UK) (fur), Furlong (US) (fur), Gigameter (Gm), Hand (UK) (hd), Hectometer (hm), Hubble, Inch (in), Kilometer (km), Kiloparsec (kpc), League (Canadian), League (int.
