Convert Decimeters (dm) to Micrometers (μm)

Please provide the values below to convert from Decimeter (dm) to Micrometers (μm) and vice versa.

What is a Decimeter?

The Decimetre (SI symbol dm) or decimeter (American spelling) is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one-tenth of a meter. The term “Deci” means one-tenth, and therefore decimetre means one-tenth of a meter.

Since a meter is made up of 100 cm, one-tenth of 100 cm is 10 cm. Thus one decimeter measures 10 cm or 3.937 inches

What is a Micrometer?

The Micrometre (SI symbol: μm) or micrometer (American spelling), also commonly known as a micron, is a unit of length equalling 1×10−6 meter (SI standard prefix "micro-" = 10−6); that is, one-millionth of a meter (or one-thousandth of a millimeter, 0.001 mm, or about 0.00004 inches).

A micrometer is a standard unit of measurement used to measure wavelengths of infrared radiations, sizes of biological cells and bacteria, and for grading wool by the diameter of the fibers.

The width of a single human hair ranges from approximately 20 to 200 μm. The longest human chromosome, chromosome 1, is approximately 10 μm in length.

How to Convert Decimeter to Micrometers?

To convert Decimeter to Micrometers, simply multiply the Decimeter value by 100000.

The formula used to calculate Decimeter to Micrometers -

d(dm) = d(μm) * 100000

The distance d in Micrometers (μm) is equal to the distance d in Decimeters (dm) multiplied by 100000.

How many Micrometers in a Decimeter

In simple terms, 1 dm is equal to 100000 μm.

The formula used is 1*100000 = 100000(μm)

How many Decimeters in a Micrometer

1 Micrometer is equal to 1e-05 Decimeters. So we can also say that there are 1e-05 Decimeters in a Micrometer.
