### 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.
