# The diameter of an atom is approximately 1 × 10^{-10} m. what is the diameter in millimeters?

Meter and millimeters are units of measurement of length.

## Answer: The diameter of an atom is approximately 1 × 10^{-10} m which is equal to 10^{-7 }millimeters.

Go through the explanation to understand better.

**Explanation:**

Given, diameter = 1 × 10^{-10} m

1 meter = 100 centimeter

1 centimeter = 10 millimeter

So, 1 meter = 1000 millimeter.

1 × 10^{-10} m = 1 × 10^{-10} × 1000 = 1 × 10^{-7} millimeter
