Decimeters (dm) to Kilometers (km) Converter

This length unit converter dynamically calculates the value you enter in decimeters (dm) and converts it to its equivalent value in kilometers (km).

How many decimeters (dm) are in 1 kilometer (km)? What is the formula for how to convert decimeters to kilometers (dm to km)?

1 decimeter (dm) = 0.0001 kilometer (km)
So we can say that there is 0.0001 kilometer in 1 decimeter.
This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a decimeter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a kilometer unit of measurement is 0.0001.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

1 kilometer (km) = 10,000 decimeters (dm)
So we can say that there are 10,000 decimeters in 1 kilometer.
This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a decimeter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a kilometer unit of measurement is 10,000.

Knowing this inverse mathematical relationship between the two conversion factors and their reciprocal operations, we can derive two formulas to calculate and convert a quantity of length expressed in decimeters to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in kilometers (dm to km). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

km = dm ร— 0.0001 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

km = dm รท 10,000 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 80.5 decimeters that you want to convert to kilometers, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

km = 80.5 dm ร— 0.0001 = 0.00805 km
km = 80.5 dm รท 10,000 = 0.00805 km

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 0.00805 kilometer.

What is a decimeter (dm)?

Definition of decimeter: A decimeter is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI), commonly known as the metric system. It is equivalent to one tenth of a meter (0.1 m). It is less commonly used than centimeters or meters but can be useful for intermediate measurements.

The abbreviation for decimeter is dm. The single Unicode character ใท (U+3377) represents the 2-character Latin abbreviation for decimeter. The Windows Alt code for this character ใท is Alt + 13175.

What is a kilometer (km)?

Definition of kilometer: A kilometer is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI), commonly known as the metric system, equal to one thousand meters (10^3 m). It is commonly used for longer distances, such as races, road distances and geographical features.

The abbreviation for kilometer is km. The single Unicode character ใŽž (U+339E) represents the 2-character Latin abbreviation for kilometer. The Windows Alt code for this character ใŽž is Alt + 13214.
