# Convert Kilometers (km) to Decimeters (dm)

Please provide the values below to convert from Kilometer (km) to Decimeters (dm) and vice versa.

### What is a Kilometer?

The Kilometre (SI symbol: km) is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one thousand metres (kilo- being the SI prefix for 1000).

A kilometer is a metric system unit mainly used to express distance in most of the world; notable exceptions are the United States and the United Kingdom, where the mile is the unit used. Even though kilometers and miles are used for measuring the same unit (distance), the value differs.

### 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

### How to Convert Kilometer to Decimeters?

To convert Kilometer to Decimeters, simply multiply the Kilometer value by 10000.

The formula used to calculate Kilometer to Decimeters -

d(km) = d(dm) * 10000

The distance d in Decimeters (dm) is equal to the distance d in Kilometers (km) multiplied by 10000.

### How many Decimeters in a Kilometer

In simple terms, 1 km is equal to 10000 dm.

The formula used is 1*10000 = 10000(dm)

### How many Kilometers in a Decimeter

1 Decimeter is equal to 0.0001 Kilometers. So we can also say that there are 0.0001 Kilometers in a Decimeter.
