# What is the smallest unit decimeter or micrometer?

The smallest distance unit is the yoctometer (ym), which is equal to one septillionth of a meter.

### Which unit is larger kilometer micrometer centimeter or decimeter?

kilometer = 1000 meters decameter = 10 meters meter = 1/1000th kilometer ... approx 39.9 inches, just over a yard. decimeter = 1/10th meter centimeter = 1/100th meter millimeter = 1/1000th meter micrometer = 1/1000th millimeter - and - micrometer = 1/1,000,000 meter - one millionth of a meter. These are listed in size from largest to smallest. You did not ask about Meter, Decameter or Meter. By the way, in England it is called…

### From largest to smallest what is the order kilometer hectometer decameter meter liter gram decimeter centimeter and millimeter?

kilometer hectometer dekameter meter decimeter centimeter millimeter micrometer nanometer picometer Liter and gram are not units of distance. A gram is a unit of weight and a liter is a unit of volume. 1 millimeter = .03937 inch 1 centimeter = 10 millimeters 1 decimeter = 10 centimeters 1 meter = 10 decimeters 1 dekameter = 10 meters 1 hectometer = 10 dekameter 1 kilometer = 10 hectometers 1 myriameter = 10 kilometers
