Answer

9.6 x $10^{-8}$ mm is the distance between any atom hydrogen and oxygen in water molecule .

Work Step by Step

We are required to convert 0.96 Å to mm. We know that 1 Å =$10^{-10}$ m. 1 m =$10^{3}$ mm So we can write: 0.96 Å = 0.96 x $10^{-10}$ m 0.96 Å = 0.96 x $10^{-10}$ x $10^{3}$ mm 0.96 Å = 0.96 x $10^{-7}$ mm 0.96 Å = 9.6 x $10^{-8}$ mm So the distance between any atom hydrogen and oxygen is 9.6 x $10^{-8}$ mm .
