A red blood cell has a diameter of 7.5 µm (micrometers). What is this dimension in (a) meters, (b) nanometers, and (c) picometers?

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The conversion of distance from micrometer to meter, nanometers and picometers has to be given.

Concept Introduction:

Conversion of Micrometer to Meter: 1micrometre = 106 Metre

Conversion of Micrometer to Nanometer: 1micrometre = 1000 Nanometer

Conversion of Micrometer to Nanometer: 1micrometre = 1000000 Picometer

Explanation

Conversion of Micrometer to Meter:

The appropriate conversion of distance:Given:7.5 μm1μm = 10-6 m whereas,7.5 μm is,7

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The conversion of distance from micrometer to meter, nanometers and picometers has to be given.

Concept Introduction:

Conversion of Micrometer to Meter: 1micrometre = 106 Metre

Conversion of Micrometer to Nanometer: 1micrometre = 1000 Nanometer

Conversion of Micrometer to Nanometer: 1micrometre = 1000000 Picometer

(c)
