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.
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 Nanometer to Decimeters?
To convert Nanometer to Decimeters, simply divide the Nanometer value by 100000000.
The formula used to calculate Nanometer to Decimeters -
d(nm) = d(dm) / 100000000
The distance d in Decimeters (dm) is equal to the distance d in Nanometers (nm) divided by 100000000.
How many Decimeters in a Nanometer
In simple terms, 1 nm is equal to 1e-08 dm.
The formula used is 1/100000000 = 1e-08(dm)
How many Nanometers in a Decimeter
1 Decimeter is equal to 100000000 Nanometers. So we can also say that there are 100000000 Nanometers in a Decimeter.
