How do you convert units into Angstroms?

It is 1 angstrom to 10^-10 m

1 Angstrom is equal to 10^-10m so if you have a wavelength, for example, you can convert it from meters to angstroms with that conversion factor.

Convert anything to meter first before you convert it to another unit. For example, one nanometer is 10^-9 meter, which is 10 Angstrom.

Hi Kallista,

I agree with all of the previous responses, especially with Norman's advice. If you have any trouble remembering the specific conversions (e.g. picometers, nanometers, etc.) I wanted to let you know that they're all in Dr. Lavelle's "Constants and Equations" sheet! Don't worry too much about memorization, but it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with these measurements so you can solve these types of questions more efficiently :) I hope this helps!

An angstrom is equivalent to 1 x 10^-10 m. I personally compare the values of 10^x to see which way the decimal point needs to move to be in angstroms.

The angstrom conversion is 10e-10. The easiest way to convert for me is to convert from whatever unit it is to meters, and then from meters to angstroms so you don't get confused with the other conversion factors.

An angstrom is equivalent to 1*10^(-10) meters and is usually used to measure bond length.

Would it be possible for someone to post a worked out example of converting something to angstrom? I just want to make sure I'm doing the conversion correctly, thank you!

For example, if you wanted to convert 1.91 meters into Angstroms, you would do 1.91m*(10^-10 Angstroms/1m), which equals 1.91x10^-10 Angstroms

Thank you for the clarification!
