## DB to Watts Formula

The following formula is used to convert dBm to watts.

W = 10^((dBm-30)/10))

- Where W is the power in watts
- dBm is the decibel-milliwatts

To calculate watts from db, subtract 30 from the dbm, divide the result by 10, then take a value of 10 and raise it to the power of the result calculated previously.

## Db to Watts Definition

Converting dB to watts is actually the process of converting decibel-milliwatts to watts since decibel in itself is just a unitless factor.

## Db to Watts Example
