## How many decimeters (dm) are in a nanometer (nm)? What is the formula for how to convert decimeters to nanometers (dm to nm)?

**1 decimeter (dm) = 100,000,000 nanometers (nm)**

So we can say that there are 100,000,000 nanometers in 1 decimeter.

This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a decimeter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a nanometer unit of measurement is 100,000,000.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

**1 nanometer (nm) = 0.00000001 decimeter (dm)**

So we can say that there is 0.00000001 decimeter in 1 nanometer.

This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a decimeter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a nanometer unit of measurement is 0.00000001.

Knowing this inverse mathematical relationship between the two conversion factors and their reciprocal operations, we can derive two formulas to calculate and convert a quantity of length expressed in decimeters to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in nanometers (dm to nm). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

nm = dm × 100,000,000→ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

nm = dm ÷ 0.00000001→ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 3 decimeters that you want to convert to nanometers, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

nm = 3 dm × 100,000,000 = 300,000,000 nm

nm = 3 dm ÷ 0.00000001 = 300,000,000 nm

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 300,000,000 nanometers.
