›› Definition: Astronomical unit

The astronomical unit (AU or au or a.u. or sometimes ua) is a unit of length. It is approximately equal to the mean distance between the Earth and Sun. The currently accepted value of the AU is 149 597 870 691 ± 30 metres (about 150 million kilometres or 93 million miles).

The symbol "ua" is recommended by the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures, but in the United States and other anglophone countries the reverse usage is more common. The International Astronomical Union recommends "au" and international standard ISO 31-1 uses "AU".

A centimetre (American spelling centimeter, symbol cm) is a unit of length that is equal to one hundreth of a metre, the current SI base unit of length. A centimetre is part of a metric system. It is the base unit in the centimetre-gram-second system of units. A corresponding unit of area is the square centimetre. A corresponding unit of volume is the cubic centimetre.

The centimetre is a now a non-standard factor, in that factors of 103 are often preferred. However, it is practical unit of length for many everyday measurements. A centimetre is approximately the width of the fingernail of an adult person.
