## 560 nm is how many meters?

Answer:

560 nm is \(5.6 \times 10^{-7} \mathrm{~m}\)

Explanation:

nm, or nano-meters, is converted to meters by using the negative exponents since we’re converting a small measurement to a larger one.

if 1 nm is \(1 \times 10^{-9}\) m, then 560 is \(560 \times 10^{-9}\)

in scientific notation; we reduce 560 to 5.6 for convenience.

we divided 560 by 100, the exponent for 100 is \(10^{2}\)

add the exponent \(x^{2}\) to \(10^{-9}\) and you get the exponent \(10^{-7}\)

and \(x=5.6\) so 560 nm is\( 5.6 ×10^{-7}\) m.
