# Convert Meters (m) to Decimeters (dm)

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

### What is a Meter?

Meter (abbreviation, m), also spelled as Metre(Commonwealth spelling), is the base unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). The SI unit symbol is m.

In the imperial system, a meter is equal to about 3.2 feet or 3 feet 3 inches.

The metric system is the standard of measurement used nearly everywhere in the world except in the United States; thus, it is the primary measurement system for scientific studies. Today, only the United States, Burma, and Liberia use the imperial system, and all other countries use the metric system.

### 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 Meter to Decimeters?

To convert Meter to Decimeters, simply multiply the Meter value by 10.

The formula used to calculate Meter to Decimeters -

d(m) = d(dm) * 10

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

### How many Decimeters in a Meter

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

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

### How many Meters in a Decimeter

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