### 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.
