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.

›› Definition: Nanometre

The SI prefix "nano" represents a factor of 10-9, or in exponential notation, 1E-9.

So 1 nanometre = 10-9 metre.
