## How to Convert decimeter to nanometer

To convert a decimeter measurement(dm) to a nanometer measurement(nm), multiply the length by the conversion ratio. Since one decimeter is equal to 100,000,000 nanometers, you can use this simple formula to convert:

### What is the formula to convert from decimeter to nanometer?

nanometer=dm * 100,000,000

### Convert 5 decimeters to Nanometer

5 dm = (5 * 100,000,000) = 500,000,000nm

### Convert 10 decimeters to Nanometer

10 dm = (10 * 100,000,000) = 1,000,000,000 nm

### Convert 100 decimeters to Nanometer

100 dm = (100 * 100,000,000) = 10,000,000,000nm

## Decimeter

### What is an Decimeter?

A decimeter is a unit of length in the metric system. The term “Deci” means one-tenth, and therefore decimetre means one-tenth of a meter. Since a meter is 100 cm, one-tenth of 100 cm is 10 cm. Thus one Decimeter measures 10 cm.

Decimeter can be abbreviated as dm; for example, 1 Decimeter can be written as 1dm.

### What is the Decimeter used for?

A decimeter is not widely used but is an important unit. In real life, we rarely find measurements written in decimetres. Since one meter is not a very long length, it is easier to use 0.1 m or 0.5 m when the length is shorter than a meter.

## Nanometer

### What is a Nanometer?

A micrometer is a metric unit for measuring length equal to 0.001 mm, or about 0.000039 inches. Its symbol is μm. The micrometer is commonly employed to measure the thickness or diameter of microscopic objects, such as microorganisms and colloidal particles.

A micrometer can be abbreviated as µm; for example, 1 Micrometer can be written as 1µm.

### What is the Nanometer used for?

Nanometers are used to measure the smallest things, usually the size of an atom or molecule. Typically, the size of transistors on a semiconductor-based processor is calculated in nanometers.
