    Express your answer as an index (such as: 10^99)

    1 nm3 = 10^-- mm3

    You can start by asking yourself how many millimetres are in a nanometre, and then cube your answer.

    Or if you need to take a step further back:
    Consider how many nanometres are in a millimetre, and hence by inverting that how many millimetres are in a nanometre.

    See what you can do.

    Think of the way you obtain volume from lengths. Using that, I would write each prefix in SI units and substitute into the formula to get the answer you are looking for. I don't want to give you the answer straight away.

    Convert both to cubic metres.

    Remember the rules for indices when multiplying or dividing two numbers of the same base.

    So 1cm^3 = 1x10^-9 m^3

    and 1nm^3 = 1x10^-27 m^3


    Careful with the -ve signs.

    1 cm = 10^-2 m

    Oooops hahha.

    My bad

    1 cm^3 = 10^-6 m^3
