Mar 8, 2007 #3 HallsofIvy Science Advisor Homework Helper 41,810 934 I will confess that I find "cm^{-1}" a puzzling unit! What in the world is measured that way? However, [tex]0.05 cm^{-1}= \frac{5}{100}\frac{1}{cm}= \frac{5}{100 cm}= \frac{5}{1 m}[/tex] Yes, 0.05 cm^{-1} is the same as 5 m^{-1} And, PLEASE, use at least cm^(-1) or m^(-1) to avoid confusion.
