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 Nanometer?
The nanometre (SI symbol: nm) or nanometer (American spelling) is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one billionth (short scale) of a meter (0.000000001 m).
The nanometre is often used to express dimensions on an atomic scale: the diameter of a helium atom, for example, is about 0.06 nm, and that of a ribosome is about 20 nm. The nanometre is also commonly used to specify the wavelength of electromagnetic radiation near the visible part of the spectrum: visible light ranges from around 400 to 700 nm.
How to Convert Decimeter to Nanometers?
To convert Decimeter to Nanometers, simply multiply the Decimeter value by 100000000.
The formula used to calculate Decimeter to Nanometers -
d(dm) = d(nm) * 100000000
The distance d in Nanometers (nm) is equal to the distance d in Decimeters (dm) multiplied by 100000000.
How many Nanometers in a Decimeter
In simple terms, 1 dm is equal to 100000000 nm.
The formula used is 1*100000000 = 100000000(nm)
How many Decimeters in a Nanometer
1 Nanometer is equal to 1e-08 Decimeters. So we can also say that there are 1e-08 Decimeters in a Nanometer.
