There are 100,000 microns in one decimeter. A decimeter is 100,000 times longer than a micron. A micron is 0.0010% of a decimeter

Decimeters to microns conversion factor and formulas

Formula

The conversion factor between decimeters and microns is 100,000. This represents the ratio of microns per one decimeter. To calculate the value in microns, we can either multiply by the conversion factor or divide by its inverse.

Multiplication

To convert from decimeters to microns, multiply decimeters by 100,000.
The formula is expressed as:
dm × 100,000 = µ

Division

Alternatively we can divide by the inverse conversion factor to get the same result.
The inverse of 100,000 is 1/100,000 or 0. To convert from decimeters to microns, divide decimeters by 0.
The formula is expressed as:
dm ÷ 0 = µ

A conversion from decimeters to microns are units within in the metric (SI) or SI compatible systems.

SI Unit

Within the SI (metric) system of measurement, the decimeter is officially defined as one tenth (1/10) of a meter. The decimeter is not widely used in everyday situations. Internationally it is spelled 'decimetre' whereas the U.S. spells it 'decimeter'. The symbol for decimeters is dm.

SI Unit

The micrometer is a very small unit of length within the SI (metric) system. It is officially defined as one millionth (1/1,000,000) of a meter or one thousandth (1/1,000) of a millimeter. The micrometer is also commonly referred to as a micron. It is commonly used when measuring microscopic sizes like bacteria or biological cells. Internationally it is spelled 'micrometre' whereas the U.S. spells it 'micrometer'. The symbol for a micrometer is µ.
