## Precise decimal and fraction answers

The conversion in nanometers rounded to six significant decimal places is **1 dm = 100,000,000.000000 nm.**
The precise fraction answer is **100,000,000 ^{0}/_{1} nm**.

### Decimal Precision

Conversion from one to ten decimal places

- 1 dm =
**100,000,000.0 nm** - 1 dm =
**100,000,000.00 nm** - 1 dm =
**100,000,000.000 nm** - 1 dm =
**100,000,000.0000 nm** - 1 dm =
**100,000,000.00000 nm** - 1 dm =
**100,000,000.000000 nm** - 1 dm =
**100,000,000.0000000 nm** - 1 dm =
**100,000,000.00000000 nm** - 1 dm =
**100,000,000.000000000 nm** - 1 dm =
**100,000,000.0000000000 nm**

## How many nanometers are in a decimeter?

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

### Multiplication

To convert from decimeters to nanometers, multiply decimeters by 100,000,000.

The formula is expressed as:

*dm × 100,000,000 = nm*

### Division

Alternatively we can divide by the inverse conversion factor to get the same result.

The inverse of 100,000,000 is 1/100,000,000 or 0.
To convert from decimeters to nanometers, divide decimeters by 0.

The formula is expressed as:

*dm ÷ 0 = nm*

## About this conversion

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

## About Decimeters

SI UnitWithin 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.

## About Nanometers

SI UnitA nanometer is a metric (SI) measure of length defined as one billionth (1/1,000,000,000) of a meter or a millionth (1/1,000,000) of a millimeter. The nanometer is frequently used for measurement of integrated circuitry in the computer semiconductor industry. The symbol for nanometer (or nanometre) is nm.
