Textbook Problem

Suppose your hair grows at the rate of 1/32 inch per day. Find the rate at which it grows in nanometers per second. Because the distance between atoms in a molecule is on the order of 0.1 nm, your answer suggests how rapidly atoms are assembled in this protein synthesis.

To determine
The hair grow rate in nanometer per second.

Explanation

Given Info: The hair grow rate is (132) inch per day.

From unit transformation,

1day=24h

1h=3600s

1in=2.54cm

102cm=109nm

Calculating the rate of hair growth,

rate=(1in32days
