What is an Decimeter?
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 100 cm, one-tenth of 100 cm is 10 cm. Thus one Decimeter measures 10 cm.
Decimeter can be abbreviated as dm; for example, 1 Decimeter can be written as 1dm.
What is the Decimeter used for?
A decimeter is not widely used but is an important unit. In real life, we rarely find measurements written in decimetres. Since one meter is not a very long length, it is easier to use 0.1 m or 0.5 m when the length is shorter than a meter.

A foot (ft) is a unit of length in the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. One Foot contains 12 inches, and one yard comprises three feet.
