dBm, Power

dBm is an abbreviation for the power ratio in decibel (dB) of the measured power referenced to one milliwatt (mW). It is used in radio, microwave and fiber optic work as a convenient measure of absolute power because of its capability to express both very large and very small values in a short form. dBm (or dBmW) and dBW are independent of impedance (as opposed to dBV which is dependent, for example).

I want to convert:

In physics, power (symbol: P) is the rate at which work is performed. In the SI system of measurement, power is measured in watts (symbol: W). This can be modeled as an energy flow, equivalent to the rate of change of the energy in a system, or the time rate of doing work. Read more >>
