Nano
Bits
Nano
is from the Greek word for “dwarf”; it indicates onebillionth
of something.
Nanotechnology
is the creation and use of objects at the nanoscale,
up to 100 nanometers in size.
1
nanometer (1nm) = 1/1,000,000,000 of a meter (close
to 1/1,000,000,000 of a yard).
1
human hair is ~50,000 nanometers across; or 50 nanometers
is onethousandth the width of a human hair.
1
bacterial cell measures a few hundred nanometers across.
The
smallest things seeable with the naked eye are 10,000
nanometers.
1
nanometer = 10 hydrogen atoms in a line.

When
you are dealing with units that are LARGER than a
meter you multiply by the appropriate factor.
When
you are dealing with units that are SMALLER than a
meter you multiply.
Below
is a chart that shows what happens every time you
multiply and divide by a thousand.
So
basically if you move up the chart you multiply and
if you move down the chart you divide.
