|in one end we provide a OTDR power in wave length 1350 nm and 1510 nm in other end we measure 1310 1510|
15.26 dbm 14.30 dbm
14.95 dbm 13.62 dbm
14.46 dbm 13.46 dbm
15.21 dbm 14.72 dbm
our requirement is all dbm vae in db

|The information provided for relation between dBm and dB is helpful.Can you please provide the more information for it in case of amplifier electronics??|

|Perform the following conversions plz:|
i). -15dB to dBm
ii). -25dBm to mW.
iii). 1W to dB
iv). 1W to dBm.

|hi, you cannot convert db to dbm, those are not the same kind of unit at all (like converting WATT to KILOGRAM)|

|When you are using a Selective Level Meter your are making measurements in a physical circuit, right?, then all the time you are measuring dBm, as the previous answers dB is a relative measure used frequently because you canít have power directly from that measurements and is more easy to get dB, but in circuits you have power in all parts, then for example to obtain dBs you only need to set a reference.|
For example you measure the input to an specific circuit then you measure the output in both cases you get dBm but you need to say about the gain or loss of your circuit then you make the simple math:
dB= dBm at output Ė dBm at input
From that specific equation if you have a positive dB then you surely have an amplifier and if you have negative dB you have a loss like a network of resistors, if you do the subtraction in opposite way then the signs and interpretations change. I hope this can help you, best regards,

|As Pix has already stated, but put more simply:|
dBm = an "absolute" measurement of power
dB = is a "relative" measurement often used to illustrate a value between e.g. two absolute measurements e.g.
.......> = 3dB relative/difference

dB is not a "measurement" unit, it is a "comparison" unit. Your "dBm" measurement can be converted into mW, W or whatever power unit you want.
1dB does not mean anything by itself. You can only use "dB" to compare two values. For example: value A is 1dB higher than value B, whatever the values A and B.
If someone asks you to provide a measurement in "dB", it means they made a common mistake. They actually want "dBm".

|I am using Selective Level Meter(SLM) to measure power line carrier communication gain in this meter its showing only the unit of dBm but I need to measure inform of dB Its there any formula to convert dBm to dB, any one can explain details please.|
