(A) Micrometres

(B) Nanometres

(D) Centimetres

Nanometers are used to measure atomic radius (10-9 m). The shortest distance between a nucleus and its outermost orbit is known as the atomic radius. Another unit of measurement is Angstroms (A0).

In a period of a periodic table, the atomic radius falls from left to right and increases from top to bottom. Any spectroscopic technique, including X-ray, can be used to estimate atomic radii.
