# Convert Micrometers (μm) to Decimeters (dm)

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

### 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.

### 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

### How to Convert Micrometer to Decimeters?

To convert Micrometer to Decimeters, simply divide the Micrometer value by 100000.

The formula used to calculate Micrometer to Decimeters -

d(μm) = d(dm) / 100000

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

### How many Decimeters in a Micrometer

In simple terms, 1 μm is equal to 1e-05 dm.

The formula used is 1/100000 = 1e-05(dm)

### How many Micrometers in a Decimeter

1 Decimeter is equal to 100000 Micrometers. So we can also say that there are 100000 Micrometers in a Decimeter.
