The DX-format is the smaller sensor at 24x16mm; the larger full frame FX-format sensor measures 36x24mm which is approximately the same size as 35mm film. Different NIKKOR lenses are designed to accommodate the different camera sensor sizes. DX cameras with smaller sensors are optimized for corresponding DX lenses.
Which is better DX or FX?
The size of the sensor is obviously important and FX shows that it is a far more capable sensor than DX when it comes to things like noise and dynamic range. In addition, you have to factor in differences in field of view when using lenses.
