Length and Distance Converter Definitions
An ångström or angstrom is a non-SI unit of length that is internationally recognized, equal to 0.1 nanometre (nm). It is sometimes used in expressing the sizes of atoms, lengths of chemical bonds and visible-light spectra, and dimensions of parts of integrated circuits. It is commonly applied in structural biology. Full description is available on Wikipedia.
The astronomical unit (AU or au or a.u. or sometimes ua) is a unit of length that is approximately equal to the distance from the Earth to the Sun. The currently accepted value of the AU is 149,597,870,691 ± 30 metres (nearly 150 million kilometres or 93 million miles). Full description is available on Wikipedia.
