# Convert Decimeters (dm) to Centimeters (cm)

Please provide the values below to convert from Decimeter (dm) to Centimeters (cm) and vice versa.

### What is a Decimeter?

The Decimetre (SI symbol dm) or decimeter (American spelling) is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one-tenth of a meter. The term “Deci” means one-tenth, and therefore decimetre means one-tenth of a meter.

A meter consists of 100 centimeters, a square meter consists of 10,000 square centimeters, and a cubic meter consists of 1,000,000 cubic centimeters.

### How to Convert Decimeter to Centimeters?

To convert Decimeter to Centimeters, simply multiply the Decimeter value by 10.

The formula used to calculate Decimeter to Centimeters -

d(dm) = d(cm) * 10

The distance d in Centimeters (cm) is equal to the distance d in Decimeters (dm) multiplied by 10.

### How many Centimeters in a Decimeter

In simple terms, 1 dm is equal to 10 cm.

The formula used is 1*10 = 10(cm)

### How many Decimeters in a Centimeter

1 Centimeter is equal to 0.1 Decimeters. So we can also say that there are 0.1 Decimeters in a Centimeter.
