Decimeter

A kilometer is a million times larger than a millimeter.

No, 1000 times smaller

Oh yes, there are lots of smaller measurements than a millimeter. A micrometer is a thousand times smaller than a millimeter. There are also even smaller units such as the nanometer and the picometer, and the Angstrom.

A micrometer is one thousand times smaller than a millimeter. A micrometer is 10-6 meters, and a millimeter is 10-3 meters. There are 103 micrometers (10-6 meters) in a millimeter (10-3 meters). Simpler answer would be: .500 mm would be 1/2 of a millimeter or 500 micrometer. So .250 mm would be 1/4 of a millimeter or 250 micrometer. I'm not sure what the abbreviation for micrometer is.

It is 100 times smaller, because a decimeter is 10 times smaller than a meter and a milimeter is 1,000 times smaller than a meter. 10/1000=100

1 decameter = 10 meters1 meter is 1000 millimeters.To get from decameters to millimeters you need to 10000:1 decameter is 10000 millimeters.Therefore a millimeter is 10000 times smaller.

A millimeter is 25.4 times smaller than one inch.

a centimeter is 100 times larger than a millimeter

1 decimetre. A decimetre is 100 times larger than millimetres

Since the millimeter is smaller than a decimeter, it is customary to ask how many millimeters are in a decimeter, not the other way around, but no matter, as long as you realize there will be only a fraction of a decimeter in a millimeter. Let's review: A millimeter is 0.001 meter. A centimeter is 0.01 meter. A decimeter is 0.1 meter. From the facts above, we can easily see that a decimeter is 100 times larger than a millimeter. That means there are 100 millimeters in a decimeter, and there is 0.01 decimeter in a millimeter. The cool thing about the metric system is that multiplying and dividing by ten is easy to remember and do. Here are some examples: If you have 3000 millimeters, you can easily divide that number by ten and say that you have 300 centimeters. Divide it again and you have 30 decimeters. Divide it again and you have three meters. Pretty easy stuff - - and very convenient. All those amounts are equal.

The millimeter. It is 10 times smaller than a centimeter.

Sorry, not larger, but smaller. A decimeter is 1/10th of a meter.
