## What is the meaning of Decimeters?

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 made up of 100 cm, one-tenth of 100 cm is 10 cm. Thus one decimeter measures 10 cm.

**What word starts with Deci and means one tenth of a meter?**

There are ten decimeters in a meter, and the word itself comes from the French deci- and the Latin decimus, “tenth.” Each decimeter is one-tenth of a meter, a measurement that’s common in many parts of the world although relatively unusual in the U.S. Americans also spell it differently than most metric system-users.

## What does FS unit stand for?

A femtosecond is the SI unit of time equal to 10-15 or 1⁄1 000 000 000 000 000 of a second; that is, one quadrillionth, or one millionth of one billionth, of a second. Its symbol is fs. A femtosecond is equal to 1000 attoseconds, or 1/1000 picosecond.

**What is the shortest period of time?**

Planck time

### What is the shortest amount of time?

Scientists have measured the shortest unit of time ever: the time it takes a light particle to cross a hydrogen molecule. That time, for the record, is 247 zeptoseconds. A zeptosecond is a trillionth of a billionth of a second, or a decimal point followed by 20 zeroes and a 1.

**What is the fastest second?**

An attosecond is 1×10−18 of a second (one quintillionth of a second). For context, an attosecond is to a second what a second is to about 31.71 billion years.

## Is 18 seconds good for 100m?

Most (non-athletic) healthy active kids and young adults will be able to run 100m around that pace or slightly faster without any training. With a little bit of regular training they might be able to drop 2–3sec to maybe 15 sec. Lots of hobby runners of a very wide age range could put up a 15sec/100m, or even 30s/200m.

**Is 11 seconds fast for 100m?**

Of course it is at that speed your ground contact times are fast, and you have a decent amount power output and more. So relative to the average speed of people 11 seconds beats the average easily.

### How fast should a 16 year old run 100m?

For most boys in their middle teen years the average 100m time will usually often be somewhere between a high of 14.4seconds with a low of 12.3seconds. But that’s only the 60% of boy’s times in we get the world; the other 36% can get it around between 11.8 and all the way down to perhaps 10.9sec.

**How fast should a 15 year old run 100m?**

A high school boy who does no sports would likely be around 14–15 seconds. For girls I would add about two seconds. A fast girl who does track in High School is around 13 seconds for a 100 meters. An athletic girl who does a different sport may be between 15–17 seconds.
