Kilometers to Decimeter conversion
Our kilometers to decimeter(km to dm) conversion tool is a free converter that enables you to convert from kilometers to decimeter easily.
How to Convert kilometers to decimeter
To convert a kilometer measurement(km) to a decimeter measurement(dm), multiply the length by the conversion ratio. Since one Kilometers is equal to 10,000 Decimeters, you can use this simple formula to convert:
What is the formula to convert from kilometers to decimeter?
decimeter=km * 1000
Convert 5 kilometers to Decimeter
5 km = (5 * 10,000) = 50,000dm
Convert 10 kilometers to Decimeter
10 km = (10 * 10,000) = 100,000dm
Convert 100 kilometers to Decimeter
100 km = (100 * 10,000) = 1,000,00dm
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.
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.
