## Angstrom

What is angstrom?

Angstrom is a unit of length equal to 10−10 meter. it is named after the nineteenth-century Swedish physicist Anders Jonas Angstrom.  Angstrom is a part of the metric system, but it can’t be considered as a part of the SI system of units.

The main use of the unit is in measurement of wavelengths of light. It also can be used in the natural sciences and technology to express sizes of atoms, molecules, microscopic biological structures, and lengths of chemical bonds, arrangement of atoms in crystals, wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation, and dimensions of integrated circuit parts.
