So I am using multisim function generator and I needed to set it with a square wave at 100kHz, using the function generator with its attenuator set to 20dB. Since I didn't have the attenuator button I would need to set the amplitude to 10 right.

I just wanted to verify that it would convert to 10Vpp
dBm or dBV?

Quiz Question -- Why does it matter?

dBm is related to power and dBV is related to volts

dBm is for absolute power and dBV is for volts
