Our micrometer to decimeter(µm to dm) conversion tool is a free converter that enables you to convert from micrometer to decimeter easily.

## How to Convert micrometer to decimeter

To convert a micrometer measurement(µm) to a decimeter measurement(dm), divide the length by the conversion ratio. Since one Decimeter is equal to 100,000 micrometers, you can use this simple formula to convert:

### What is the formula to convert from micrometer to decimeter?

decimeter=µm / 100,000

### Convert 5 micrometer to Decimeter

5 µm = (5 / 100,000) = 0.00005dm

### Convert 10 micrometer to Decimeter

10 µm = (10 / 100,000) = 0.0001 dm

### Convert 100 micrometer to Decimeter

100 µm = (100 / 100,000) = 0.001dm

## Micrometer

### What is a Micrometer?

Micrometer ormicrometre, also called micron is a metric unit of measure for length equal to 0.001 mm, or about 0.000039 inch. Its symbol is μm. The micrometre is commonly employed to measure the thickness or diameter of microscopic objects, such as microorganisms and colloidal particles.

Micrometer can be abbreviated as µm; for example, 1 Micrometer can be written as 1µm.

### What is the Decimeter used for?

A decimeter is not widely used but is an important unit. In real life, we rarely find measurements written in decimetres. Since one meter is not a very long length, it is easier to use 0.1 m or 0.5 m when the length is shorter than a meter.

## Decimeter

### What is an Decimeter?

A decimeter is a unit of length in the metric system. The term “Deci” means one-tenth, and therefore decimetre means one-tenth of a meter. Since a meter is 100 cm, one-tenth of 100 cm is 10 cm. Thus one Decimeter measures 10 cm.

Decimeter can be abbreviated as dm; for example, 1 Decimeter can be written as 1dm.
