Express the bond length of 110 pm in Angstroms. What would be the value of wavelength of 700 nm in Angstroms?

700 nm would be 7000 angstrom
(1nm is equal to 10 angstrom)

The easiest way for me to do conversion problems like this is to be able to visualize them using dimensional analysis, so you would set up the problem
110 pm x (1m/10^-12pm) x (1 angstrom/10^-10m) that way the units cancel and you are left with your answer in angstrom
