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
