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

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

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

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

Inversely (or reciprocally),

**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 division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a nanometer unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a decimeter unit of measurement is 100,000,000.

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 nanometers to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in decimeters (nm to dm). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

dm = nm × 0.00000001→ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

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

For example, if you have a length of 65 nanometers that you want to convert to decimeters, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

dm = 65 nm × 0.00000001 = 0.00000065 dm

dm = 65 nm ÷ 100,000,000 = 0.00000065 dm

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 0.00000065 decimeters.
