Decimeter and Decameter are two of the most widely used measurements to calculate length. These units have wide-ranging applications in various fields. This makes it very important to learn how to convert these two units of length measurement. In this blog, we will know the Decimeter to decameter conversion formula, process, and examples to better understand the concept.

What is Decimeter?

A decimeter is a unit of measurement in the metric system primarily used to measure length. This unit is derived from the word Deci, which translates to 1/10th; thus, a Decimeter can be considered equal to one-tenth of one meter. There are 100 centimeters in one meter, which means that 1/10th of a meter equals 10 centimeters. This means that 1 decimeter is equal to 10 centimeters. 

Please note that 1 Decimeter can also be considered equivalent to 100 millimeters, equal to 0.1 meters for conversion. Further, 1 decimeter also equates to roughly 3.937 inches. The SI and metric unit of volume measurement, liter, is roughly equal to one cubic decimeter.

Origin of Decimeter

The word Decimeter found its origins in the 1800s when it was derived from the French word Deci, which originated from the Latin term- Decimus. The term Decimeter was first coined in 1809.

Current Use of Decimeter

Even though the Decimeter is not a widely used unit of measurement, it has various importance. A Decimeter is most commonly used to measure the length and is larger than a millimeter or centimeter. One of the most common uses of this unit is to measure tennis courts.

What is Decameter?

The Decameter was established in the International Bureau of Weights and Measures and is widely recognised as Dekameter. It is represented by the symbol ‘dam’ and is widely considered the SI unit of measurement, equal to 10 meters. This is a more commonly used unit than other SI units of length measurement. 

One of this unit's most widely used applications is measuring geopotential altitude within the meteorological sector. This unit is also used in the volumetric form to measure the volume of large bodies of water like rivers and lakes. 

Relationship Between Decimeter to Decameter

The relationship between Decimeter and Decameter is pretty straightforward. 1 Decimeter can be defined as being equal to 0.01 Decameter. On the other hand, there are 100 Decimeters in 1 Decameter. This is all you need to know about these two units to convert them in the future. 

Decimeter to Decameter Conversion Process

There is 0.01 Decameter in 1 Decimeter, while 100 decimeters in 1 decameter. If you wish to convert Decimeter to Decameter, all you need to do is multiply the value in Decimeter by 0.01.

Formula for Converting Decimeter to Decameter

Once you understand the relationship between Decimeter and Decameter, the conversion process should be fairly simple. Given below is the conversion formula that you can use to convert these two units of measurement:

Decameter = Decimeter * 0.01
