conversion factor
« on: June 07, 2012, 07:20:25 PM »
  I can't believe how much trouble I am having finding this information!  I am working on a personal science problem, which is my favorite thing to do, but in order to proceed I need a way to convert a cubic angstrom to a more common measure of volume, like ml, or cm cubed.  Does anyone know a conversion factor which can help me out?  Thanks!

A quick Google tells me an angstrom is defined as 100 picometers, or 1×10−10 m.  Its not an official SI unit, but still in wide use.
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.

  Will I be able to use a picometer as an effective way of representing volume?  My goal is to end up in L or ml.

1 cm is 10-2 m, volume of a cube with an edge length 1 cm is 10-2 m × 10-2 m × 10-2 m = 10-6 m3.
