Angstrom(Å)

Postby Mulin_Li_2J » Sun Oct 06, 2019 11:26 pm

I know Angstrom is not a SI Unit, but can I treat it as a SI derived unit of 1 nm?

Yes, I think that the Angstrom is a more commonly used unit in this situation, so you can use it as if it is an SI unit.

But by definition, is it a SI Unit?

I think angstrom is not recognized as an official SI unit.

An angstrom is not a SI unit. It is used and recognized by many scientists but it is not part of the International System. An angstrom represents 10^-10m. This can be converted to other SI units like nanometers or picometers.
