Our decimeter to kilometer(dm to km) conversion tool is a free converter that enables you to convert from decimeter to kilometer easily.
How to Convert decimeter to kilometer
To convert a decimeter measurement(dm) to a kilometer measurement(km), divide the length by the conversion ratio. Since one kilometer is equal to 10,000 decimeters, you can use this simple formula to convert:
What is the formula to convert from decimeter to kilometer?
kilometer=dm / 10,000
Convert 5 decimeters to Kilometer
5 dm = (5 / 10,000) = 0.0005km
Convert 10 decimeters to Kilometer
10 dm = (10 / 10,000) = 0.001 km
Convert 100 decimeters to Kilometer
100 dm = (100 / 10,000) = 0.01km
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.
What is a Kilometer?
A kilometer (km) is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). One kilometer is equivalent to 0.6214 miles.
A kilometer can be abbreviated as km; for example, 1 Kilometer can be written as 1km.
What is the Kilometer used for?
It is currently the official unit of measuring distances between geographical places on land in most of the world. However, several countries use the mile instead of the kilometer. These countries include the United States and the United Kingdom (UK). Unlike the United States, the UK has adopted the metric system; while the metric system is widely used in government, commerce, and industry, remnants of the imperial system can still be seen in the UK's use of miles in its road systems.
