    By definition, 1 picometer (pm) is one-trillionth of a meter, so 1 trillion pm. = 1 m.

    and 1 centimeter (cm.) = 1/100 meter, so 1 cm. = 10 billion pm. or 10**10 pm.

    (I use ** to mean to the power of)

    So to convert cm. to pm. we multiply by 10 billion or 10**10.

    Then 4.06 * 10**-4 cm = (4.06 * 10**-4)(10**10) = 4.06 * 10**6 pm.
