Unit conversion confusion

  1. Sep 21, 2012 #1
    Hi everyone,

    I'm having a little confusion here:

    I measured a value which is 0.27 nN/nm and I converted it's value as 0.27 N/m.

    Is this correct or should it be 0.27 nN/nm = 0.27*10^9 N/m

    Thanks for your help

    0.27 nN/nm = 0.27 N/m = 270N/km
