Convert Decimeters (dm) to Meters (m)

Please provide the values below to convert from Decimeter (dm) to Meters (m) 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.

Since a meter is made up of 100 cm, one-tenth of 100 cm is 10 cm. Thus one decimeter measures 10 cm or 3.937 inches

Today, only the United States, Burma, and Liberia use the imperial system, and all other countries use the metric system.

How to Convert Decimeter to Meters?

To convert Decimeter to Meters, simply divide the Decimeter value by 10.

The formula used to calculate Decimeter to Meters -

d(dm) = d(m) / 10

The distance d in Meters (m) is equal to the distance d in Decimeters (dm) divided by 10.

How many Meters in a Decimeter

In simple terms, 1 dm is equal to 0.1 m.

The formula used is 1/10 = 0.1(m)

How many Decimeters in a Meter

1 Meter is equal to 10 Decimeters. So we can also say that there are 10 Decimeters in a Meter.
