# Convert Decimeters (dm) to Nanometers (nm)

Please provide the values below to convert from Decimeter (dm) to Nanometers (nm) 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 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.
