The Angstrom as unit of measure:

Angstrom – deprecated non-si unit of length equal to 10-10 m, named after the Swedish physicist and astronomer Anders Angstrom, who introduced it for the first time into use in 1868.

The Angstrom as the unit of measurement is the Russian designation international designation – Å.

Angstrom, being a non-si unit is not included in the number of units the International system of units (SI). However, in the Russian Federation in accordance with the Decree of the RF Government dated 31.10.2009 No. 879 (edited on 15.08.2015) “On approval of the regulation on measurement units admitted for application in Russian Federation” (Application № 3) Angstrom approved for use without time limitation of the scope of physics, and optics.

Previously, the Angstrom is often used in physics as 10-10 m is the approximate diameter of the orbit of an electron in an unexcited atom of hydrogen.

 


Translation angstroms to other units:

1 Å = 0.1 nm = 100 PM.

1 Å = 10-10 m = 10-8 cm = 10-4 µm.

10 000 Å = 1 µm.

1 cm = 108 Å.

1 cm = 1010 Å.
