Best Answer

The SI system uses prefixes that go up and down in order of thousandths.

So to start, one metre, one thousandth of a metre is a millimetre; one thousandth of a millimetre ( one millionth of a metre) is a micrometre; one thousandth of a micrometre ( one billionth of a metre) is a nanometre.

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.
