It is convenient to use when measuring bond lengths, but it is not a IS unit.

Angstrom is not in SI units but it can be converted to SI units. 1 Angstrom = 1*10^-10m

Representing length or distance, it is also commonly used for expressing the size of atoms and molecules which will be a reoccurring concept.

I talked to my TA about this and even though it isn't an SI unit Dr. Lavelle wants us to know the conversion.

No, but I think Lavelle expects us to know its conversion.
