There are 1000 microns in a millimetre. So, if we convert mm to microns, we multiply by 1000 to give 1000 microns. 1 micron / 1000 microns = 0.001 as a decimal.

The symbol for nanometre is "nm", 'n' nano, 'm' metre, both lowercase. One thousand metres is a kilometre, one thousand kilometres is a megametre, etc.
