picometers to centimeters

Postby kalamitykate » Wed Sep 01, 2004 9:41 am

I have a College Chem project due this week and it's just not making sense! I'm trying to convert 3729 pm (if I got that part right, I sure hope so) to cm. The answer should be close to 5 x 10 power of -7

1cm = 1 x 10 power of -2 m.....right?

and

1pm = 1 x 10 power of -12 m....right still?

Hope you can help! :roll: I couldn't find a conversion for pm on your conversion calculator.
